We’ve shared a few stories about how Kura can help you own your adventure. Whether it be a quick and wholesome breakfast or a summit snack, we have you covered.

Today, we will be taking things a step further & sharing exactly how you can easily enjoy Kura whilst hiking, backpacking, climbing, etc. These recipes are great alternatives to protein/nutrition bars as they have way less sugar (22g of sugar in leading protein bar versus 4-6g naturally occurring sugar in Kura), are easy to pack in & out, while also delivering 18g of protein, probiotics, prebiotics, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants & omega-3s. Without further ado, here’s what Kura looks like in the wild:

NO BAKE DIRTY CHAI ENERGY BITES

Meet my new addiction – these are so easy to pop as a snack it’s sometimes hard to stop. You only need 15 minutes to prep these bad boys, you can do it the morning of, the night before or even earlier in the week before your adventure. Throw them in your pack and get exploring!

NO BAKE CHOCOLATE OAT COOKIES

The theme here is EASY – these are better to have prepped a day before your adventure as they take about 30 minutes to firm up in the fridge. Other than that, prep time is about 15 minutes. When you start to feel that midday grumble at camp or on the trail, reach for some no-bake Kura cookie goodness.

KURA WITH WATER OR FAVORITE BEVERAGE

When I’m backpacking, car camping or hiking, this is how I start my mornings and keep my energy up mid-hike, climb, walk, etc. I pack my Kura shaker, water & two travel packets for every day of my adventure. I typically have a chocolate single-serve travel packet with water in the morning and then another later in the day if I’m feeling hungry. The shaker is compact and can simply be refilled with water once you’re done (this is how I clean it on the go, no mess or hassle). For the fancier folk, you can use a Hydroflask to keep your drink of choice cold (cold brew or almond milk) and enjoy with a travel packet on a summit, trailside, at the crag or when you reach your campsite.

There are so many ways you can easily enjoy Kura outside, all of which offer wholesome nutrition, little to no mess & most importantly, no hassle or significant added weight to your pack.
