    An ex-boyfriend’s family did this. I thought the milk was gross but they kept trying to get me to drink it since they knew I liked milk. Yuck! They lived an hour from the nearest grocery store (they did have a little convenience store close by with EXPENSIVE items). This meant they had gotten used to it.

    Maybe doing it in serving sizes for your meals would work better? Would definitely thaw faster! I thought about trying not so long ago when Kroger had 1/2 gallons for $1! But I am NOT as brave as you!!! In actuality I don’t like milk at all…I really just use for cooking. It’s my husband and youngest that drink it…oldest is allergic and eventually stopped wanting rice milk.

    I’m not a fan of frozen white milk, but chocolate milk is ok… When I lived in GA my kiddos had a favorite chocolate milk. Once we moved to MN we could no longer get it. Every time my parents came to visit, they would freeze the single serve bottles and bring them along.

    As you pointed out, it’s mostly the fat separating out. Skim milk doesn’t have that problem.

    I actually freeze milk routinely. My kids drink a lot but I can only fit so many gallons at a time in my fridge. And Whole Foods (the only store around here that sells the milk I’ll give my children) offers a 10% discount if you buy 4 gallons of the same brand.

    As a milk lover, I don’t notice the difference, nor do my kids. It does take awhile to defrost so I always pull a gallon out of the freezer when the kids’ jug is about 1/4 full.

    I have frozen the lower fat milk for years to put in coolers when going camping or hotel stays.
    Most hotel rooms have small refrigerators now but when my children were small they weren’t as popular nor did the hotel offer a free breakfast. We took our cooler with frozen milk and a box of cereal by morning enough milk was thawed to use without the mess of thawing ice.

    Hi! Thanks for the article. Freezing milk is something that we do on a regular basis. We usually buy three gallons and put one in the freezer. (It doesn’t last long here). We put a solidly frozen jug in the sink and once it gets a little slushy, we pop it in the fridge. It never takes more than 24 hours for it to thaw. A good hearty shake and it’s ready to go. We’ve done all the different milks (whole to fat free) and we don’t notice a difference. But, everyone’s tastebuds are different, that’s for sure!!
