instant breakfast drink recipe ??s

i really like the carnation drinks, but wondered if i could make this for cheaper. found this recipe online... anybody made this or something similar? what recipe do you use? want it healthy with ingredients that aren't super hard to find. thanks!

Instant Breakfast Drink Mix
1 - 3 oz box instant vanilla, or chocolate or butterscotch pudding
1/3 cup sugar
12 scoops protein powder
6 cups instant dry milk powder
2 tsp vanilla powder

Combine all, blend well.

Blend 1 c. Ice Water & 1/3 c. mix, blend well. Add fresh fruit for a change of pace.

I never used it to make up a whole mix but I used to do 1 scoop of protein powder (I have used the Soy Protein Power and Whey Protein Power but can't remember which one I liked better), 1 tbls sugar free, fat free pudding mix and water. Sometimes I would add in 1 tsp of instant coffee.

I think the recipe you posted would be fine but I would take out the extra sugar. To me, pudding mix is already sweet.

Yummy. I'm gonna try that. I think I'll try Splenda instead of sugar to make it lower in sugar. I hope it tastes good that way.
