How to freeze a gallon of milk:

  • Step 1: Pour off a little so that you have about 2 inches or so of room at the top of the jug.
    If you don’t do this the container may break as the milk freezes. As the milk freezes it expands so you must do this step!!!
  • Step 2: Place in the freezer standing upright. You will see the fat separate, but don’t panic.
  • Step 3. When ready, Thaw in the fridge.
    Once it is thawed, just shake to mix the milk back to its original state. Use within a few days of thawing.

So next time you find a killer deal on Milk – Freeze it!

The next time you spot a great deal  but don’t know if you can use all of the milk, freeze it! I love to do this when they have marked down milk at the grocery store and it is really cheap.

Stock up when it is on sale or reduced and put the milk in the freezer. It is a win-win situation!

By shopping when things are on sale I save money on groceries and it really helps our budget. Saving money and feeding a big family can be accomplished.

Tips for freezing:

Ok, so if freezing milk and then pouring it in your cereal freaks you out, I have a solution. You can also freeze milk in half cup or one cup increments.

Use your cup cake pan to help you with this. Once frozen pop them out and place in a freezer bag.

You can also use an ice cube tray. These are all great ideas if you do not have the space to freeze an entire gallon of milk in the container.

Now you have milk ready to use when baking. This works perfectly when you are making Pancakes, or really when you are baking any dessert.

You can make easy homemade hot chocolate mix.  Enjoy white gravy recipe- ready in 10 minutes and you can use the milk from the freezer!

Another tip is to write the date on the milk so you know when the gallon of milk was placed in the freezer.

Frozen milk is so handy and saves time and money. I wouldn’t leave it in the freezer longer than 3-6 months.

And make sure to remember to leave room before freezing. You definitely need several inches of headspace. Don’t skip this part or you could end up with a very big mess in the freezer!

If you have the freezer space, go ahead and store the milk and freeze it for later. I also love to do this when milk is nearing the expiration date and we are going to be away.

This will help to save money when leaving for vacation or wherever and you don’t have to worry about losing good milk. You no longer have to worry about what to do if you have milk you can use or will go bad soon.

Never pass up a great sale again on milk. I get so excited when I see milk for half off in the reduced section. Saving money is fun and having extra milk in the freezer is super handy!

If you have an extra freezer, you can really freeze all sorts of things to save time and money over the year. You can also learn how to freeze eggs.

Ingredients

  • 1 Gallon of Milk

Instructions

  • Pour out approximately 1 cup of milk from the gallon container so that the container does not break when the milk expands as it freezes.
  • Seal the container tightly and place in the freezer standing up right.
  • Thaw in the refrigerator (not at room temperature) when ready to use.  The milk will likely separate when it freezes, so shake thoroughly once it thaws to incorporate the ingredients back together.
