Re-purposed Frappuccino Bottles

What to do with those jars?!

I was looking at my recycling the other day trying to figure out what I could repurpose into something better.

And as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a bit of a caffeine addict. So in my recycling, I noticed several Starbucks bottles from the gas station. Guilty.

I got to thinking about all the cute painted and etched bottles I’ve seen on Pinterest. And thinking about how I really have no use for something like that. And thinking more about other upcycled ideas.

And it hit me. I didn’t need to repurpose those bottles; I need to refill them! So why not use these bottles to DIY and plan ahead?

So that is exactly what I did.

Step one: Remove all that Starbucks hoopla. If my coffee is going to have anyone’s name on it, it’s going to be mine. No I’m kidding, actually I just don’t like stickers. The easiest way to do this was to allow the bottles to soak in really hot water for about 15 minutes and then the labels peeled right off.

Step two: Find and make the perfect recipe (I used this one).

Step three: Fill your bottles and store in the refrigerator.

I’m so excited to have reused these bottles in a useful way! Now we are ready for the next time we have a coffee craving. What consumer products do you need to find a DIY solution for?

      Oh no, that’s not good. It has been a while since I made this; however, I think this recipe is close. Taste test before filling your bottles so you can make additions as needed.

      Heat 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup strong coffee. Once warm, whisk in sugar and cocoa. I would do this by adding 1 T. at a time until the flavor is right. Let me know how it turns out!
