It's easy to know how to thaw frozen milk by following the steps below. You can save a lot of money if you know how to thaw frozen milk.



Things You Will Need

  • frozen milk
  • counter or refrigerator space
  • time

Step 1

Before taking your frozen milk out of the freezer, decide where you want to thaw frozen milk. You can thaw frozen milk in the refrigerator or on the counter top.

Step 2

Take the milk out of the freezer. Place it where you previously decided to place the frozen milk- either in the refrigerator or on the counter top. Follow the steps below based upon where you are thawing the milk

Step 3

If you decided to thaw frozen milk in the refrigerator, it will take about two days to fully thaw. Be sure to take the milk out of the refrigerator every 6 hours or so to shake it (keep the lid on the container!). This will help to ensure proper consistency of your milk once fully thawed.

Step 4

If you decided to thaw frozen milk on the counter top be sure to shake it every 2 to 3 hours in order to ensure proper consistency of fully thawed milk. It should take about 8 hours to fully thaw your milk. Be sure to keep a careful eye on your milk as you thaw it so that you place it in the refrigerator once your milk is nearly completely thawed. This will ensure your milk will not spoil.
Previously frozen milk can be used in the same manner as never-frozen milk. It can be used for drinking or using in recipes.Â

Tips & Warnings

Do not leave milk outside of the refrigerator too long, as it will spoil.
