Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 Tbsp. Chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast mix (you may use cocoa powder, but it will be gritty)

    2-3 packets of Splenda
    2 oz. hot water
    5 oz. cold water
    2 oz. fat-free milk

    Lots of ice

Directions

For each 16 oz serving:

1) Combine breakfast mix, coffee, Splenda, and hot water in 16 oz. glass.
2) Add cold water, milk, and coffee creamer. Stir.

    Thanks so much for a delicious recipe! My variations: I used all cold water - no hot. I didn't use extra Splenda because I had some Sugar-Free Carnation French Vanilla Creamer, which already has Splenda in it. I Plopped all ingredients into my Magic Bullett and blended. Then poured over ice. YUM!! - 1/21/10

    I'm always looking for easy ways to jazz out my coffee at home and this recipe was super delicious. My husband actually stole my first glass on his way out the door but, the recipe is so quick and easy I didn't mind whipping up another one for myself. - 6/8/09

    Beware the liquid coffee creamer!! It's loaded with trans-fats, which are SO BAD for you! It would be healthier to use real cream, believe it or not. - 4/11/07

    Reply from JLIUZZO (3/31/09)
    That's why you should use that Fat-free creamer. There are no trans-fats.

  • This is great! Made it several times already. I substituted sugar free Nesquik powder for the instant breakfast and didn't need to add extra splenda since I thought the sweetness was perfect. What a calorie saver!!! - 5/24/10

  • This may sound like a silly question, but when you say instant coffee, do you mean the ground up grains? Or do you mean brewing it, and then using that?

    Thanks for the recipe! - 10/7/09

  • what is Chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast mix and where can i find it? I dont want my drink gritty so i wanna use it, but I don't actually know what it is so you see my dilemma - 3/20/09

    Reply from JLIUZZO (3/31/09)
    You find it in the breakfast aisle at the grocery store. It's a powdered drink mix that you usually mix with milk, for a healthy breakfast alternative. Carnation is the brand name. Hope you find it! =)
