How to Freeze Milk

By Edited Aug 22, 2015 0 5

It's quite easy to freeze milk for later use. Whether you got a really great deal on some milk, or you just find yourself with too much milk, milk can be frozen for up to six months in a plastic container.

Things You Will Need

Milk in a plastic gallon jug
A one-cup measuring cup
Freezer space

Step 1

Begin by opening the plastic gallon jug full of milk to be frozen. Make sure the milk is not expired by smelling the milk. Expired milk cannot be frozen. Use only fresh milk for freezing.

Step 2

Pour out one cup of milk into the one-cup measuring cup. Place the poured out milk in the refrigerator or use immediately.

Step 3

Replace the cap on the plastic gallon milk jug and place the jug in the freezer. The extra space in the plastic jug will allow for expansion of the milk as it freezes.
That's it! Frozen milk will keep well in the freezer for six months. For info on how to thaw frozen milk, check out "How to Thaw Frozen Milk".

This is great! I do this all the time as it seems to be cheaper to buy a gallon over a half gallon these days and there is no way that we can go through that much milk before it goes bad otherwise. I freeze in quart sized freezer baggies and this works out prefect for us

Augh! You are leaving me hanging in suspense! The link for "How to Thaw...." is failing.

I'll have to try this. But not till I learn to thaw it. :)

Seriously....thanks for posting this.
