Makes 8 to 10 servings

One evening, my son Tobias and I sat and watched the thunderstorms from the safety of the house. After it was over, Tobias asked for a cup of hot chocolate but remarked that he wanted one of my special ones. So I made him a Hot Chocolate Banana Smoothie. We often enjoy hot drinks the trail and I just happened to have everything needed to make this mix stashed in the cupboard. This recipe is perfect for a rainy day.

1/2 cup instant banana cream pudding mix
3/4 cup hot cocoa mix (hot chocolate mix)
1/3 cup powdered milk

At Home: Mix the dry ingredients together and place them in a ziplock freezer bag.

At Camp: Shake the bag of dry ingredients to ensure they are well combined. Place 3 tablespoons of mix in a cup and carefully fill it with 8 ounces of boiling water. Stir until the ingredients dissolve. Repeat for each desired serving.
