    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?

    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".

    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.
