  • wow you guys a re slow milk drinkers. We go through 3 gallons in less than a week. Yeah you can freeze it. No it doesn't get watered down. Just make sure to shake it as it thaws cause the milk fat will seperate.

  • I would maybe look into a dulce de leche recipe that uses milk rather than sweetened condensed milk. I don't have a recipe but, I know my G-Ma used to use at least a gallon of milk when she made it. Idk, good luck! & I agree with Anon 1:49 puddings, in general, are probably going to be your best bet.

  • Pudding usually takes a good amount of milk to make. However, before I would pour it down the drain I would drive it to a shelter I am sure they would put it to good use.

  • I make pudding or add chocolate to it. Then the boys drink it fast! For Easter I made dirt cake and it took half a gallon of milk. I had four gallons in my fridg. so I was glad it took so much. My hubby brings milk home from the cheese factory he works at. It is free but I still hate to waste it, so I try to use it all.
