Do you use mix-ahead foods? When I was growing up, I remember mixing up dry ingredients for teas, cookies, and soups that we gave as low-cost gifts throughout the year. Today, there are many mixes you can purchase pre-made from the store, but these are usually packed full of chemicals and preservatives.
If you love the convenience of make-ahead mixes but don’t want all the chemicals, want to have a selection of delicious gifts available at any time, or simply want to re-stock your prepper stockpile; these recipes from around the web will inspire you and prepare you for any occasion.
Simple and Delicious Drink Mixes
I love make-ahead drink powders because you know just what is in the recipe! They also make tasty gifts that everyone loves. If you’ve never made make-ahead mixes before, drink mixes are a great place to start!

One Good Thing by Jillee: Homemade Nesquik- Chocolate Milk Makes a Comeback (I make this one over and over. Love it hot or cold)
Quick and Tasty Bread Mixes
Make-ahead bread mixes are not quite as simple as drink mixes, but they can save you time in the kitchen. If you make a lot of mixes, you can have simple breads mixed up in minutes!
