  • Yes- milk can be frozen for up to a month I believe. Let it thaw completely before drinking or you'll just be drinking the fat.

  • We freeze it all the time, it's fine, just make sure you calcuate how many days it was frozen and add that to the expiration date so you know when to check it. That said, once it's been frozen it actually goes longer without turning than if it had never been frozen.

  • Should be good if fresh when frozen.

  • I have frozen a gallon of milk before and there isn't anything wrong with it
    taste is fine, you might have to shake it up a little before serving...

  • It's safe to drink it. Although I have tried doing it before and it tasted a little odd. Might have been just me though.

  • Absolutely, we lived overseas and when milk was scarse we would freeze it. Nothing changes

  • I have plenty of times. Especially when it's on sale. I'll try and stock up a little.
