I usually make a 10x batch of the dry mix in advance and then mix 1 1/2 T dry mix per 1 cup of milk, or I make 6x batch in the blender (the most my blender holds) and store in the fridge in bottles or cups with lids so I can grab one on the go. I also like to experiment with different flavors of creamer and pudding. I don't always use fat-free and sugar-free either -- just whatever I have on hand. Be sure to let it chill as that allows the flavors to blend and the pudding to thicken the drink, which makes it more like the bottled frappuccinos; you can even stick it deep in the freezer for 10 mins or so. Cooking time is the minimum recommended chill time. We give the dry mix as gifts too. I found this recipe in the chat section of RefundingCents web site.
