...Vegan 'International Coffee' Mix...


...just three simple ingredients for a delicious instant coffee beverage...

...get your trusty kitchen hammer out and smash up some of the candies...I used three per cup...after experimenting a bit with different amounts...first one then two and finally three to get the flavor and sweetness just right...

...and a quarter cup of powdered soymilk for each cup...and a teaspoon of freeze dried coffee for each cup...I used decaf...as I'm quite hyper enough without caffeine...but of course you can use caffeinated coffee if you want...

...give it a whir in the food processor...

...don't worry if there are still little bits of candy showing...they'll dissolve in the hot water pretty quickly...but you can smash them better than I did if you want to...or maybe just process them longer...

...put a slightly heaping quarter cup in a mug...

...pour in some boiling water...

...stir it up good...

...and enjoy...

...this stuff is so good...I'm probably going to make a bunch more...and not just for camping...YUM!

...and you know what else I'm thinking would be good...another mix with cocoa and some crushed up peppermints...Karen gave me that idea...

(if no-one has forwarded you the "buy american services for christmas instead of chinese items" email, let me know, it's something to think about!)

sooo i just bought butterscotch candies and instant coffee tonight because of your blog. i love camping-friendly vegan foods! (even though i hardly get to go camping these days haha) also love your ideas for the dehydrator. ever done tofu jerky? i need to tweak the marinade a bit so if you've tried it i'd love to compare notes! :)

I'm thinking pretty little gift bags and this would indeed make a lovely gift. Great idea!
