This easy to whip up dry mix for a backpacking recipe mocha comes from Trail Cooking: Trail Food Made Gourmet, on page 24.
In Your Face Morning Mochas
- 1¼ cups instant milk
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 2 to 4 Tbsp instant espresso powder
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- Generous pinch of fine sea salt
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Bag the powder into ½ cup portions.
2 Tbsp of espresso powder will provide a sweet mocha flavor. 4 Tbsp will give you the “bite” of a double shot.
To prepare: Add 1 cup boiling water slowly to the mix, stirring well. Sip away and wake up!
Makes 5 to 6 servings.
