25 Ideas to Reuse Plastic Protein Powder Jugs, Jars, and Containers

My husband is a runner and works out in one form or another almost every day. After his workout he often enjoys a fruit smoothie with a scoop of peanut butter or protein powder or if he is feeling really crazy sometimes both.  I’m a fan of adding peanut butter powder to my morning oatmeal along with various nuts and dried fruit – many of which come in plastic tubs with screw on lids. Which means we end up with a lot of fairly large empty, food safe containers. Sometimes I recycled them but more often than not I reuse those empty plastic containers and my house has never been more organized – for free!

Vodka Cranberry Popsicle Recipe

Once I declared this year The Year of the Popsicle,  my Popsicle making experiments are going well. I am getting kiddos that hate anything remotely healthy to eat my variations of juice and fruit pops, which makes me happy.

Now it is time for something more a bit more grown up Vodka Popsicles!

Oh yes, my friends, I'm ready to teach you how to make booze infused Popsicles because I can't invite you over for a BBQ and a taste of my delicious experiment. I would if I could but my yard is too small to host of all you.


The BPA free ice pop molds I have are discontinued. The closest BPA free Popsicle mold I can find this this styles the  Nuby Garden Fresh Fruitsicle Frozen Pop Tray . (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience.) If you want to make larger Popsciles than the toddler size shown here, I suggest using a silicone Popsicle mold like this one.

I tried and failed throughout the summer to get the perfect combination of juice and alcohol that will properly freeze. (A hardship, I know.) I finally came up with a recipe that doesn’t have as much alcohol in it as a traditional mixed drink but it will freeze into a Popsicle and not melt immediately when removed from the Popsicle mold. I know it’s there and sometimes that’s all that matters when you’re treating yourself and girlfriends with a covert frozen adult beverage.

 You will need: 

1 cup of cranberry juice

1 splash of lime juice to taste

2 teaspoons of vodka

1. Mix the cranberry juice, lime juice, and vodka together in a bowl or large measuring cup.

2. Pour the cranberry mixture into a Popsicle mold.

3. Put the Popsicle molds in the freezer and wait and wait and wait until the cranberry vodka Popsicles freeze solid.

4. Once the Popsicles freeze completely, remove from the mold and enjoy!

Vodka is one of those alcohols that melt easily. Wine might work a little better with it. Cranberry vodka popsicles sound tasty.

This sounds soooo good! Yum! I love my vodka drinks, so I can't wait to try this!!

Oh boy.....I think these may just become my new summer favorite LOL
This recipe will freeze because of the small amount of vodka I use in it. I experimented to make sure I got the right amount of vodka vs. juice so the Popsicles will freeze.

Sneaky. I like it! And yes, sometimes the discreet adult beverage is as much for the naughty factor as it is for getting loaded.
