  • Put all ingredients in a bag or container to be used in the backcountry. See meal prep tip below.


  • Add 8 oz (240 mL) cold water to the container. More or less water may be added to reach the desired flavor.
  • Stir or shake vigorously to mix well.
  • Massage bag with fingers or use a utensil to break up any lumps as peanut powder may clump.
  • Enjoy!



  • Several brands of peanut powder are available for purchase (i.e. PB Fit®, Anthony’s®, Emergency Essentials®) at grocery stores or online. We recommend reading food labels and choosing peanut powder containing only peanuts. Many contain added sugar. For example, PB Fit® has a higher fat content than PB2®.



  • To reduce calories by 200, use non-fat milk powder in place of whole milk powder
