Reuse Plastic Yogurt Cups

I have started using empty yogurt cups for scoops. In the past, I had used everything from big spoons, child-size cups, and store bought ones. After they are empty, wash and dry them and use for pet food, flour, sugar, coffee - anything you need a scoop.


I have also used them for specific portions for desserts like pudding, applesauce, etc. Beats throwing them away. Oh, and you could use for starter pots for seeds!

Great idea. I am a Yogurt lover, especially Stonyfield Chocolate Underground. Yummy.

I have been using yogurt cups for starter pot for years. A great way to recycle, and they can be used a number of times before they are done. Just be sure to punch a few holes in the bottom for drainage before using.

Great idea just read the specifics. One recent container I had said "not for reuse of food". You don't need 'extra' unknown ingredients in your foods (lol).

A wonderful idea! I also used to save the little plastic scoops which came with powdered drink mixes. I don't buy those any more since my boys grew up. I have one in my coffee canister which I've had for at least 20 years. One scoop is perfect for 4 cups in my percolator. I'll start saving my yogurt boxes now... Thanks!

Excellent ideas! I have a Yoplait every night before going to bed and would far rather find a use for some of the containers before recycling and Yoplait containers are recycle #5 so are completely safe for food reuse. :-)

You just gave me another idea! Why not decorate the containers and use as small flower vases for each place setting when having company?
