How To Freeze And Thaw Milk

How To Freeze And Thaw Milk | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

Since our Shelter in place pandemic orders have gone into effect, I have been researching Youtube to find out everything that I possibly can about how to save and utilize storable food. I recently discovered that you can Freeze Eggs, which I never imagined was even possible. When faced with possible food shortages you really start to get very inventive and driven to make the most of what you have. I recently found this excellent video on Youtube by Laura Fuentes @Momables and she describes everything you ever wanted to know about freezing milk. In the video, you will learn how to freeze milk in the jug container that it comes in from the grocery store. Also, there are specific instructions on how much milk needs to be taken out of the jug to allow for freezing expansion (a little less than 1/4 should be sufficient). You will also be walked through a step by step process to store milk in freezer bags and write on the front how much is in each bag so when you thaw it out for something you make often you will have a pre-measured amount, which works great for things such as pancakes. This method of freezing milk is very simple and straightforward and you only need a few basic materials.



  • Milk
  • Zip Lock Baggies
  • A Sharpie Marker (for dating your milk)
  • A Freezer


One of the things you will learn from this excellent video is that you will need to take out about one-fourth of your milk to allow for expansion when frozen.
