Scoops From Powdered Drinks


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Once I finish a powdered drink (Advocare Spark) tub, I save the scoop and use them as measuring spoons. One scoop is ~1 Tablespoon. They are perfect for measuring out things like salad dressings, sour cream and Cream of Wheat or whatever you can imagine.


P.S. Most High Efficiency Side loading washing machines you only need 1 or 2 Tablespoons of laundry detergent. You could use the scoops to measure out the detergent and you'll be amazed at how much longer the bottle of detergent lasts!

    I do this as well. I find it very useful. There are times that I purchase powdered drinks, like cocoa mix and they do not come with a measuring device. I like to keep these measuring scoops for all sorts of things.

    I do this also. Use them for my assorted nuts I keep on hand. It's so easy to to get more that a tbs and more calories. emoticon
