Recycling Coffee Creamer Bottles

Those plastic coffee creamer bottles can be reused! You can use them to carry water and juice in just like any water bottle. And you know how children love to snack on Fruit Loops, Cheerios and Gold Fish? These bottles can be the snack containers for the diaper bag!

I did a Google search on some ways that others have reused coffee creamer bottles. See if there isn't a way you can recycle coffee creamer bottles. Let these ideas stimulate your creativity.

Make a game with a ball and some recycled coffee creamer bottles. Wash them, pour some acrylic paint inside and swish around, then let them dry. Finally hot glue the top on and get a small ball and let the kids play bowling.

You can even use them to store your own homemade coffee creamers.

1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Put all ingredients in container and shake well.

Pumpkin Spice Creamer
1 cup fat free half & half (skim milk works better because the pumpkin will thicken it up significantly)
1/2 cup pumpkin
Truvia or sugar to taste (1-2 tbsp)
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Heat the half & half, pumpkin and sugar (or Truvia) until it bubbles. Whisk together and add the vanilla and spices.

14 oz. milk

2 tablespoons raspberry syrup

Mocha Coffee Creamer

1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup non-dairy coffee creamer
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon orange extract
In a jar with a screw-top lid, combine all ingredients and shake well to blend.

Mocha Creamer
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp agave nectar or honey
1 tsp water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup half and half or cream
1/2 cup milk (any kind)
1.In a small pot over low-medium heat, stir together the cocoa powder, agave nectar, water, and salt until the cocoa is dissolved into the water and agave.
2.Once the mixture is smooth, pour in the cream and milk, and heat over low until the mixture is warm and bubbles are beginning to form around the edge of the pan.
3.Remove from heat and pour into an air-tight container. Cool and store in the refrigerator.
*Note: This creamer will separate a little bit in the fridge – chocolate layer on the bottom, cream on top. Give it a good shake before using.
