Poof! Your breakfast

Wow! Today is a scorcher! A high of 94 degrees, and tomorrow at 60. If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait five minutes...

How does one keep cool one day, and warm the next? Powder! No, not baby powder -- instant breakfast! The Carnation packets are expensive, and it's hard to find the no-sugar-added mix in canisters. So I researched, and hello there. A recipe!

Instant Breakfast Drink Mix
1 (3 oz.) box of instant vanilla, chocolate, or butterscotch pudding
1/3 cup sugar
12 scoops protein powder
6 cups instant dry milk powder
2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine all, blend well.

To use: Blend 1 cup ice water and 1/3 cup mix, blend well. Add fresh fruit for a change of pace.


The problem is... there is sugar added. Also, isn't vanilla, wet? I can see I'll need to mess around with the recipe this weekend. I'll let you know how it ends up...
