Milk labels are a good solution for people who live in countries where milk is often sold in bags (such as Canada). It enables you to pour the milk into a glass bottle and still remember when it should be consumed by. It is also a good solution for those who make milk from powdered milk and like to prepare the milk in bottles. Its also a great way to serve milk when entertaining or at events.
It can also be used by those who prefer to make their kids chocolate milk themselves. They can use less sugar and healthier ingredients.
If you need milk labels for events such as a wedding you might prefer our black and gold elegant version to this cute and colorful version.
I personally like my milk in a bottle. It is a fun and pretty way to store it.
I drink soy milk, my husband likes low fat milk and my kids drink full fat milk so the milk labels enable us to remember label the milk. Each person has their own color to make it easier to distinguish between the bottles of milk.
Milk labels are also useful when entertaining for breakfast or coffee or for events when you want to serve milk that looks prettier than in a milk carton.
The labels can be personalized. If you don’t want to include a name then just erase the name. You can also erase the “best by” date. If there is anything that you want to write on your label then feel free to add it. For example, you can write “Good morning!” or “Have a nice day!”.
We suggest laminating the label. That way you can use them over and over and just use a dry erase marker to change the best by date each time you refill the jar.
Don’t forget to take the label off when you put the milk bottle in the dish washer between uses.
Homemade Chocolate Milk

- 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend until the sugar has dissolved.
- Pour into a milk bottle and make a cute chocolate milk label.

I love making chocolate milk for my kids. It encourages them to drink milk and it doesn’t have as much sugar as the commercial versions. Cocoa is also very healthy.
