Use mesquite flour as a substitute for cocoa powder in this hot beverage.

This Tasty Hot Drink Substitutes Mesquite for Cocoa

We call it, “Hot Mesquite-O.” You may just call it delicious.

Use mesquite flour as a substitute for cocoa powder in this campfire warmup drink. Try adding some rum, too, and let us know.
This is an interesting desert substitute for hot chocolate. The mesquite flour has a flavor of its own and built-in sweetness, so it basically replaces the cocoa mix. This is one case where you use it straight up. Give this one a shot and see what you think. One of our tasters suggested the addition of some rum to create a warm cocktail, but we haven’t tried it … yet!

Recipe type: Beverage
Cuisine: American Camp Cooking
Serves: 1 cup
Ingredients
  • 1 cup milk (whole milk makes it the creamiest, but reduced fat milk will work, too)
  • 4 tsp. mesquite flour
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a sealable quart jar.
  2. Screw lid tightly in place and shake well until it’s very frothy. Give it at least a solid minute of vigorous shaking. More's better.
  3. Pour into a saucepan and heat over fire stirring nearly constantly.
  4. Get it good and hot, but do not allow it to boil.
  5. Serve like hot chocolate.
Try this one with the rum, and let us know what you think!
