Chai Tea Mix

1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
2 cups powdered non-dairy creamer
2 teaspoons vanilla powder*
2-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cardamom

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. In a blender or food processor bowl, place 1 cup at a time, and process until mixture is blended and the particles are fine.

Add 2 heaping serving tablespoons Chai Tea mixture to a mug of boiling water and stir to mix well.

*If you can’t find vanilla powder, mix 2 tsp. Vanilla extract with some of the sugar until blended and dry. Then process with remaining ingredients in blender or food processor.

Note from ThinThinker: I subbed out the sugar for Splenda and it was wonderful. You would never know the difference and it significantly reduced the calories.



Hot Chocolate Mix

3 cups non-fat dry milk
2 cups Splenda
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Put ingredients into a large bowl and mix well (I use a wisk). Keep mix in a well-sealed container/jar. Mix 4 Tablespoons into a large mug of hot water.
Per cup= .5 WW points. A delicious guilt-free treat!

Note from Syn: Every year I make a large batch of the Chai Tea mix and Hot Chocolate mix for my daughter to take to the hospital where she works as gifts for her co-workers.


Potato Soup Mix

1-3/4 cups instant mashed potatoes
1-1/2 cups dry milk
2 Tablespoons instant chicken bullion
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1-1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Place in 1 quart canning jars to store.
Makes 6 servings.

Instructions to attach to jar:
To serve: place ½ cup mix in soup bowl and add 1 cup boiling water. Stir until smooth.


Split Pea Soup Mix

2-1/2 cups green split peas (16 oz. pkg.)
2-1/2 cups lentils (16 oz. pkg.)
2-1/2 cups pearl barley (16oz pkg.)
2 cups alphabet macaroni (8oz. pkg.)
1 cup dried onion flakes
1/2 cup celery flakes
1/2 cup parsley flakes
1-1/2 teaspoons thyme
1-1/2 teaspoons white pepper

Mix all ingredients together. Store in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Stir before using.
Makes 10 cups of mix.

TO COOK: Combine 1 cup of soup mix with 4 cups of water or seasoned stock in large pan. Add 1 cup of cooked chopped meat, if desired. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover pan. Simmer gently for 45 to 60 minutes, or until peas are tender. Add ½ teaspoon of salt if desired.



Onion Soup Mix

3/4 cup instant minced onion
1/3 cup beef flavored instant bouillon
4 teaspoons onion powder
1/4 teaspoon celery seed, crushed
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Mix all ingredients together well, and store up to 6 months in a cool, dry place. Stir before each use. Five tablespoons of the mix equals 1.25 oz. pkg. Of purchased dry onion soup mix.



Make Your Own Pancake Mix

1/2 cup instant oatmeal
8 cups flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1-1/2 cups buckwheat flour (or use whole wheat flour)
1 cup corn flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 cups buttermilk powder
5 Tablespoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons baking soda
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons malt powder (optional)

Place instant oatmeal in a food processor or blender and process until ground. In a very large bowl, blend all ingredients together. Pour pancake mix into four 1 quart jars (you may need to tap the jars to settle the mix and get it all to fit). Store in a cool, dry place for up to one year.

RECIPES
Pancakes
1 cup homemade pancake mix
1 egg

Drop by ¼ cup measure onto lightly greased hot nonstick skillet or griddle. Cook until surface is bubbled and edges appear dry. Flip pancakes and cook until risen and browned on second side.

Waffles
2 cups homemade pancake mix

FlyLady’s Mocha Mix

24 oz. powdered milk
8 oz. instant coffee (decaf or regular)
16 oz. Nestles Quik chocolate milk powder

Pour together into a mixing bowl. Stir with a spoon. If you use a less expensive/coarser powdered milk, you can put all of it into a food processor or blender and mix it better. I have even used the Hazelnut instant coffee and it is great too.

To use: Scoop out ¼ cup into a mug. Add one cup hot water and stir.

1 can crushed pineapple in juice, do not drain
1 pkg. fat free sugar free instant vanilla pudding
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 - 8 oz container Fat Free Cool Whip

Cut apples into bite size pieces and put into big mixing bowl. Immediately pour pineapple over apple slices to keep from turning brown. Pour in pudding powder and mix well. Stir in peanuts and marshmallows. Mix well. Fold in Cool Whip.

2 WW points per cup

Notes: I use one Fuji or Gala and one Granny Smith apple for color. You can also use chunk pineapple for a more chunky texture.

Default Here are a few of my favorites:

Taco Soup

1 large jar Great Northern Beans
2 cans whole kernel corn
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 packet mild Taco seasoning
1 packet lowfat Ranch dressing or dip mix (dry)
1 cup water

Put all ingredients in a large soup pot. Heat through.

1 WW point per cup

Note: I also put in 1 bag of Morningstar Farms soy crumbles. It adds 1 WW point per 2 cup serving, but it is very filling.



Potato Soup

1 bag O’brien frozen hash browns
1 large can fat free chicken broth
1 envelope country gravy mix
spices to taste (basil, oregano, salt, pepper, thyme)

Put frozen potatoes, chicken broth and seasonings in a soup pot. Bring to a boil and let simmer until potatoes are thawed. Mix gravy mix in about a ½ cup water and whisk to get rid of most of the lumps. Add to soup. Simmer on low until the gravy mix thickens the broth a bit. Soup will thicken further as it stands.

Makes about 8 cups. 1 WW point per cup



Magic Chili

2 cans Bush’s Magic Chili
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 lb. Lean ground beef

Mix all ingredients together in pot. Heat through.

Note: I use 1 bag Morningstar Farms soy crumbles instead of the ground beef. It brings the points down.

Honey Mustard Dressing
2 WW points for the whole recipe

1/2 cup plain non fat yogurt
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Honey

Mix all ingredients together.

MICHELLE'S NOTES: The whole thing is only 2 points and I don't see how anyone could eat THAT much dressing on their salad! You might want to add another tablespoon of honey to suit your taste but be sure to add the extra point. I mix it up and leave it in the fridge and mark off 2 points from my flex points and use it during the week. That way no matter how much I use I have already counted the points. If you like poppy seeds you can add some in there too!
