Thanks for this recipe. I made some up to keep in my lunch box. I am a substitute in our school district and usually get called that morning to report to work. Being in a different school frequently, this is nice to have on hand. Thanks for posting.

Sorry to say but this wasn't good at all. I have been trying to find a recipe to use up my instant milk and i found this and i love these kinda drinks and i was so excited to make it, but it wasn't good i threw out the rest of my cup and the mix. Sorry, maybe it was just the kind of instant coffe i used

Thank you for posting, Poppy! My son drinks French vanilla cappuccino every morning before school and it tends to be quite pricy. I mixed this up and put it in the empty container and he never knew the difference! I followed some of the other suggestions and used powdered vanilla creamer and I combined everything in my food processor and it worked perfectly. As far as the instant coffee goes, I used a generic Walmart brand that had been sitting in my cupboard since Christmas (when I used it to make mocha fudge) and I didn't notice any bitterness or staleness in the vanilla cafe mix. My son uses about 2 1/2 spoonfuls for his coffee every morning swears that it tastes just as good as the other stuff (since I finally let him in on my little experiment). I'm so glad you posted this recipe!

This is great! Using the suggestions of other reviewers I used French Vanilla Creamer and crushed my instant coffee. Excellent taste and creaminess!

Oh this is soooo good! I used French vanilla coffee creamer along with the vanilla pudding mix and it was wonderful, creamy and delicious. EDIT: I just recently made the full batch and I'm so glad I did!! Now I want this every single day!! :) The instant coffee I used was rather coarse so I blended everything up in my coffee grinder. It came out perfect. No lumps and dissolves instantly. I was originally going to give this out as gifts but now I want it all for myself! Oops! Thanks :)

I thought this was delicious! I used sugar free french vanilla flavored creamer & sugar free instant vanilla pudding mix. I highly reccomend using the flavored creamer because it tasted great! I also added about 1/4 tsp cinnamon & used Splenda. I put everything in the blender to give it a smoother taste. thank you for the recipe!

I thought this was a great mix. I had all the ingredients on hand so it was much cheaper to make then buying. Thanks for posting!
