Grab 'n go disposable coffee cups & cutlery are convenient, yes, but costly to the environment - from the fact they're made from oil, are typically bleached in chlorine, pile up in landfills and leave a carbon footprint that is anything but disposable or temporary. But your typical green-friendly options are typically so flimsy. So I was surprised at how hefty and non-puny these Repurpose Compostables are. Instead of petroleum, they're made from plants and free of everything you wanna be: BPA, harmful inks, waste. And once you do toss them, everything in the line - which also includes clear cups & plates - will compost completely within 90 days.
And as a fun, healthy alternative to eggnog, why not serve your guests some yummo Almondnog that's as healthy and toxin-free as the cup it's in?
WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Almond Milk, Brown Sugar & Amaretto flavoring
HOW TO MAKE IT: Warm up the almond milk over medium-low heat. Stir in brown sugar & pour into the cup. Add in a few drops of Amaretto flavoring & if you're feeling festive, a dollop of creamy whipped topping. Enjoy!
