Vegan Instant Cappuccino Mix

Here's the Cappuccino Mix recipe from The Vegetarian Group that I used as the starting point for my vegan version.

1 and 1/3 cup instant coffee
1 and 1/2 cup instant coffee creamer
2 cups instant chocolate drink mix
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix well, store in airtight container.

To use it, stir about 3 teaspoonsful into a cup of boiling hot water.

Here's my vegan version:

1 and 1/3 cup instant coffee
1 and 1/2 cup Better Than Milk powdered soymilk
2 cups cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix well, store in airtight container.

To use it, stir about 1 tablespoon into a cup of boiling hot water.

I increased the amount of sugar because I was using cocoa powder rather than powdered chocolate drink mix. The Better than Milk worked very well. The girls like to enjoy this with a splash of vanilla soymilk.

The boys helped mix this up and gave it to the girls along with two coffee mugs and a tablespoon measure. It was a big hit! BTW, 1 tablespoon is equal to 3 teaspoons.
