I have had a few weeks to taste test all of our new Starbucks Kcup coffees (it's a tough job but, somebody has got to do it!) and man oh man have I enjoyed it. I honestly had no idea I would be so thrilled with this line off coffee pods. My morning cup has been so much more satisfying and I never thought that was possible. 

To be quite candid, Starbucks has never been my first choice of coffee shops. When I go there I tend to gravitate toward lattes and flat whites avoiding the regular coffee roasts. But, I think I was simply not giving it a chance because their coffee has always had a reputation of tasting burnt and overdone. But, there is so much more to it.

Okay so I am now kind of obsessed with Kcup up cycling crafts. I mean, how could you not? They turn out super cute and create a second use for our spent Kcups. We have now made the Frankensteins, turkeys and here we are back at it with this ultra simple option...pilgrim hats.

Pilgrim Hat Materials:
  • multiple kcups, washed and dried
  • black acrylic paint OR black spray paint (both work fine) 
  • yellow acrylic paint
  • sponge brush
  • small paint brush
  • black foam from the Pilgrim hat
  • clear glue (I used Elmer's clear school glue)
  • glue dots
  • white ribbon 
  • scissors

With only a little over a month to go until the Star Wars premiere we are kicking it in to full gear.  I am wearing my favorite Yoda t-shirt and drinking from my adorable Star Wars mug. The tickets have been purchased and I have been cranking out fun force themed snacks like nobodies business. But, this my friends is my piece de resistance,  the culmination of the two things I hold dear in this world, Star Wars and lattes.

Say hello to my Star Wars Blue Milk Latte.

Blue milk is a sustenance of choice that appears or is referenced in the movies many times over. This creamy, sweet blue beverage is also referred to as Bantha or Tatooine milk, because it comes from the female Bantha who lives on the planet of Tatooine, duh! 

So my milk came from a cow on planet Earth, boring yes but a fun way to celebrate the release of the new Star Wars film none the less. The best part is, it is super easy to make!

There is no name associated with coffee that is more iconic than Starbucks. Starbucks coffee is known all over the world with over 22,000 stores in 50 countries. The first of which opened in 1971 in Seattle just outside of the historic Pike Place fish market. Interestingly, they didn t even sell the coffee drinks they are now famous for, only beans. It was not until a trip to Italy that one of the founders realized his dream of bringing that famous European coffee house experience back to America. That he did and he did it with a vengeance. 

By the way, the Pike Place location I mentioned is still open and serving thousands of drinks to this day. As you can imagine, it draws quite a crowd. In fact lines can be seen down the street for most of the day filled with Starbucks biggest fans thrilled to experience a piece of their history. But, don't worry, from what I have read the line moves very quickly as it is staffed by only the best of the best baristas. Rumor has it they seem to be a bit of a cross between Pike Place fish tossers and is not uncommon to see cups flying through the air from server to barista and vice versa.

Curious about Keurig Kold? That makes millions of us. 

Kold is the newest brain child of Keurig that has been in the works for several years. Keurig Kold is the result of a meeting of the minds between Keurig and Coca-Cola. Talk about a match made in heaven, if these two iconic companies cant revolutionize the soda industry as we know it, no one can. 

Although, they have yet to prove that Keurig Kold is in fact that revolution, it is a darn good start. The reviews are mixed but, the concept is pretty darn cool (no pun intended). 

Keurig Kold works very much like the classic Keurig coffee brewers. However, the end product is of course not hot coffee but, ice cold, fizzy soda instead. I should says fizzy sodas, seltzers, iced teas, flavored waters and cocktail mixes. With such famous flavors as Coke, Diet Coke, Dr. Pepper and Canada Dry in addition to little known craft sodas and more. Currently the available Keurig Kold pods include:
