Quick Tip: Backcountry Slushies

You cross over Delightful Scenic Way Awesome Pass somewhere in the backcountry.

As you set down your sweaty pack caked with salt, shmutz, and grit, you notice a pile of snow near or at the top of the pass.

Having a little water in your bottle, you top off the bottle with a bit of snow, too.  Or you add a little water and snow to a bowl.

Cocoa and Via slushie. Sugar and caffeine. Need I say more?

Mix with the flavoring of your choice (lemonade powder? Cocoa and Coffee packets?  EmergenC? A little something-something extra at the end of the day to make an adult libation?), and you just made a backcountry slushy.

Easy to make.

Yummy.

And oh so satisfying for kids.

Or kids at heart.

Enjoy!
