Our family drinks pretty much just milk, water, and our version of “flavored water”. The girls really won’t drink straight water but boy, do they sure love juice! However, I have many issues with juice. It’s pricey, even with a sale and coupons. We go through it like crazy. And most brands are filled with lots of sugar. So, the girls usually get 3/4 water and 1/4 juice combined, sometimes less juice even.
Well, at Target last week, I stocked up on some pretty cheap frozen juice concentrate. Even though I do not mind making the juice myself, I always have issues with juice pitchers and containers. I have tried many kinds, from the cheap $1 ones to the expensive Rubbermaid ones, but I always encounter issues of leaking. Grrr.. makes this momma mad!
One day, as our bottled juice had just run out, a lightbulb went off in my head! Reuse the juice bottle for the juice concentrate! Using a funnel, I filled the recycled juice bottle with the juice concentrate and water and gave it a good shaking. Easy peesy. No spills. No leaks. I am one happy mamma!
And make sure to save those juice concentrate containers and old $1 juice pitchers that leak. They make a great tool for learning with your toddler!
