Bridget's notes for this recipe:
If you're tired of purchasing expensive boxes of Instant Breakfast drink mixes, than try this filling do it yourself recipe. This makes a family size batch. If you're looking to reduce your sugar intake, substitute splenda for sugar. This makes an excellent addition to care packages for college students
who need a little pick-me up in between classes.

I just went grocery shopping today and thought about buying a box Carnation Instant Breakfast for my son who is testing at school but when I seen the outrageous price they wanted I quickly changed my mind. Thank you for sharing this recipe:o)

Your so welcome Christina I'm amazed at how much food is over priced and how EASY it is to make it at home..sometimes the initial cost to prepare cost more but if it's something you do regularly the savings will be tremendous!

Thanks for sending me over here Bridget...nice post (I love making it sugar-free by using either Splenda, Truvia or Stevia).
