Ya its very simple

Step 2: Mix It Up!

If you want let your kids help here

add the 2-3 tbs of the creamer to one nice cold glass of milk, mix up and add the ice. test the drink to make sure its just sweet enough but not to sweet or else the little ones will be bouncing off the walls

For a MUCH healthier drink, which kids also love:
1 c milk (full-fat if for kids, lowfat or even skim if for adults)
1-1/2 c fresh strawberries
1-3 Tbs honey, or to taste, depending on the berries
3-4 ice cubes
Place ingredients in blender & whomp until frothy & smooth (no large chunks of ice remain). This makes two delicious sevings.
I believe this is an Hispanic drink, but don't know the name. I saw it, of all places, on the Diego kids cartoon show, when I was at my grandkids' home. Nothing would do but that we try it. Was a huge success.

I used to drink this when I was little. It is deceptively unhealthy.

this made me think of a Mongoulian drink that is I believe sugar and milk but I don't know what it is called. Does anybody know what it might be called or how it is traditional made?
lol that ice looked like metal blocks!

I've got a fantastic one for you, and really quick. All you need is a papaya (about 750g) 100ml coconut milk 50ml double cream 4tbsp condensed milk Lay the papaya on its side, make an incision on the top and cut round in a circle, to make a lid. Carefully hollow out the seeds from inside. Pour in the liquid ingredients and replace the lid. Wrap in cling film and microwave 600w on high power for 5-6 minutes Immediately take off cling film and carefully spoon out the papaya flesh into small bowls with some of the liquid. Kids love it and its even better with thai sticky rice.

I don't know... Non-dairy creamers tend to use a palm oils and sugar. Not healthy for anyone.

Quite sad that you can't get the kids to drink milk, but they will drink creamer? Gotta wonder.
Actually, I have a 5 year old autistic niece who up to 2 years ago would never drink milk but loved yogurt. My wife and I made this big production of drinking Ovaltine. We played it up as a fantastic adult treat (actually, it wasn't too obnoxious) and she couldn't wait to have some. Each time we made it for her we used less powder and more milk. After 2 weeks, she was on pure milk. I guess it's all in how you approach it. I think this might have worked as well if we played it up as an "ice cream drink".
I drink lots more milk than most people but I gate yogurt.

They do drink milk this is supposed to be an ice cream substitute and its not creamer is about 95 percent milk 5 percent creamer its just for the sweet taste to make it taste like a desert
Most non-dairy creamer is really quite inert biologically (by most reports, others have great fears of it). I tried this with some kind of mint chocolate creamer someone gave me (I guess it says something about my circle of friends when they give me four bottles of mint chocolate non-dairy creamer they somehow wound up with) and my kids felt it tasted ok (as did I, at least on par with store-brand chocolate milk and possibly a tad above). I can't imagine it's a whole lot worse then milk reading the nutritional info on the creamer (not that it involves all that much of it). A bit terse and lackluster on the demo, but a totally ok tip.
