Never Run Out Of Milk With This Hack...

Milk is a staple for so many people, but it can be tricky to get enough in some places now.

Due to high demand for groceries, a lot of us may be worried about keeping enough milk in for cups of tea, breakfasts, and other cooking needs as well as for their children.

We have some great news for you – cows milk can be FROZEN!

You can freeze it in bottles (we’d be careful with glass, plastic should be ok to freeze) and also, you can freeze it in easy portions using ice cube bags! Foreverhomejune19 on Instagram has demonstrated this clever hack here…

Speaking on the Today show in Australia, Dr Joanna McMillan has previously stated:

“Freezing is a really amazing way of preserving our food because you don’t have to use chemical preservatives.

It’s actually one of the oldest means of preserving foods. I think we under-utilise the freezer in today’s age where we think everything that’s fresh is better for us and it’s actually not the truth.”

So, there we have it – you can freeze cows milk! Portion it, pop some in the freezer, and you needn’t worry so much about your fridge supply going sour and then being unable to find more for a while. Fabulous! The ice cube trick is even more handy. If you are freezing a bottle, drink a little first as fluids expand when frozen.

Bear in mind that whole milk may separate a little and appear yellowish as it has a higher fat content, so shake well once defrosted and don’t defrost in the microwave or any source of heat – be patient. Always use within a few days.

Like cows milk, you can also freeze dairy products like cheese and (real) butter, too!

Can other types of milk be frozen?

For this question, because there are so many types of milk alternative and no real formal resources on this, you are best off ringing the manufacturer of the product for further advice. We’d hate to mislead you by telling you that you can freeze something that is actually unsafe for your health to do, so always check with the manufacturer, or consult a medical professional.
