If this is an extended trip and weight is of a concern non-dairy creamer
works great. I used this and added it just after draining most of the
water (needed some to make the milk) and because it was creamer I
actually had butter form in the noodles. My kids actually think this
tastes better than milk and real butter at home. This trick works well
with the lipton noodle packages which call for milk and butter also.
If this is a shorter trip and you can carry the extra weight the squeeze
stuff works fine.

Got an interesting question for any folks here who are backpackers. From
other people, books, magazines, and TV shows, I have heard that macaroni
and cheese is possibly the most popular meal to make when backpacking. I
am going on a trip to the black forest in PA at the end of the month
my high-school backpacking class, and am in the process of planning a
menu. I looked at a box of mac a cheese today and saw it requires butter
and milk. How do you bring butter on the trail? Is there som secret that
I'm not aware of? Please help.
