Once you pick your favorite way to make that beautiful cup of coffee, you now have to find your favorite recipe to bring. Not everyone likes a plain black cup of joe, so here are a few recipes you can prepare at home to enjoy your coffee a bit more while camping.

What you need for most of these recipes:

  • Powdered milk
  • Coconut Cream Powder
  • Spices (Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Cayenne Pepper)
  • Brown Sugar
  • Molasses

Tip: Prepare all powdered mixes at home in plastic baggies or containers.

1. Mocha


  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Cream Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Chocolate Milk Powder

Prepare: It is so simple, really. Make your cup of coffee, stir in all ingredients and serve.

2. Cinnamon Spice Coffee


  • 1/2 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Powdered Milk
  • 1/8 Tsp. Ground Nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp. Vanilla Powdered Coffee Creamer

Prepare: Yet, another simple one. Add all ingredients to your fresh cup of joe and stir.

3. Vanilla Latte


  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Powder
  • 1 Tsp. Sugar or Brown Sugar

This next one is extra special if you like a little zing to your coffee.
