Homemade Mixes - Intentional By Grace

One of the reasons box mixes are so popular is that we’re all busy and want our meals fast!

I get that – I even wrote a book because of this very real need.

However, if you take a moment to read the ingredient list on these pre-made mixes, you’ll be astonished to know that there is a long list of unpronounceable ingredients that are actually quite terrible for your body.

You can learn more about those food additives here.

But for now, I want to share some homemade mixes with you because I believe you don’t have to skimp on convenience when it comes to eating a real food diet.

Of course, you’ll need to prepare these healthy real food mixes yourself, but if you do it in bulk, you’ll have them on hand whenever you need them.

Below are 22+ homemade mixes you should try out!

If there is something not on this list that you find yourself reaching for regularly, do a quick search online. I guarantee you that you’ll find a much healthier version of it that you can make yourself at home!

Pssst!! These also make great last minute Christmas gifts. Just put your homemade mixes in a pretty jar and you have an easy, frugal Christmas gift for just about anyone on your list!

  1. I like the convenience of waffle mix in the fridge. We use the recipe from Simple Bites and love it.

    I’ve also made my own brownie and cookie mixes before going to the beach so we can have fresh goodies with a lot less fuss.
