Who needs this

when you can have this?

One of my favorite summertime treats is iced coffee. Here's an easy recipe to keep on hand.

1/3 cup dry milk powder
2/3 cup white sugar (I substitute half artificial sweetener to keep calories down)
2/3 cup powdered non-dairy creamer (I use flavored like Hazlenut or Amaretto)
1/3 cup instant coffee granules
1/3 cup instant hot chocolate mix
In a mixing bowl combine powdered milk, sugar, coffee creamer and instant coffee granules. Store in an air tight container.

When you're ready, mix a few spoons full into a small amount of warm water to disolve it. Then ice it down and enjoy! (Obviously in the winter this is a delicious hot drink as well.) Yumm-O!

My, oh my, this sounds delicious ; I'm having a groups of lady friends over for a swim party and this will be a delicious treat! thank you.

You have such beautiful children. And on the topic of children thank you for the lovely comment you made on my blog about my "adopted" granddaughter. (She is the youngest daughter of my closest friend and both of her grandmothers are no longer living). Corline

OK, I need to know... how much is a small amount of water? Like a half a cup? A cup? This sounds delish!

Mendy, I don't measure anything... Yeah, a half cup should probably be about right.
