On the trail, there is only one way to get cold food, and that is to use nature for what she has to offer. Dropping a drink into an ice cold stream will do that. But what if you want cold food?
I have a hiking recipe for pudding that is sure to be chilly on a hot summer day because I will use water from the coldest stream I can find. Here is the recipe:
Hiker’s Rocky Road Pudding (Makes three servings)
1 3.9-oz. pkg. Chocolate Fudge Instant Jello Pudding
½ cup Meyenberg Whole Powdered Goat’s Milk
3 tbsp. Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits, packaged into 1 tbsp. servings.
3 tbsp. soaked and dehydrated walnut pieces, packaged into three servings
Open Jello Pudding package and pour into a bowl. Add powdered milk and mix very well, breaking up clumps of milk. Weigh powder and divide by three (156 grams). In a snack-size baggie, add 1/3 of the pudding powder, 1 pkg. of Mallow Bits, and 1 pkg. walnut pieces. To use, pour powder into a smoothie-shaker cup and add ¾ cup water. Shake until well-mixed. Pour nuts and mallow bits in and stir.
