Can you freeze a gallon of milk?

I want to buy extra milk cause it is on sale, but I don't want it to go bad... will it be OK if I freeze it?

  • yes you can freeze it & it will be just fine. sometimes i get 2.5 gallons of milk at a time. you just need to make sure to take the frozen milk out of the fridge at least 24 hours before you will need it. it takes FOREVER to melt.

  • You can. I don't like to, b/c it...I guess separates is the best way to put it. Like if you make chocolate milk with it, you'll see little specks of white floating on the top. Which I know is nothing gross or bad, but I just can't stand it. I've heard if you shake it really well as it thaws, it helps with that, but doesn't seem to work for me.

  • Yes you can freeze it...but the container may warp because frozen liquid takes up more space....

  • Yes I freeze mine all the time. Like a PP said, take it out about 24 hrs in advance and let it thaw on the counter for a couple hours before putting it in the fridge. Skim and fat free don't separate that bad, but if you get 2% or vitamin d, just shake it up REALLY good to mix the fat back in after its thawed

  • I do it sometimes too. Just make sure it's ALL the way thawed and shake it.

  • I have frozen milk before. I just shake it up after it thaws.
