Guest Post: Frozen Milk

As the mother of two young boys, we go through a lot of milk. I was tired of making multiple trips to the grocery store every week, but our fridge only held two gallons comfortably. A friend of mine recommended buying extra gallons and freezing them in our freezer in the garage. It works like a charm! 

I've found the squarish jugs from Costco work best because they have extra head room that allows for expansion when the milk freezes. Now if I see I'm going to run out of milk, I can just grab an extra gallon out of the freezer the night before I need it. This saves me tons of time and aggravation!

And does it taste completely normal? No freezer aftertaste?

My boys have never complained, and when I tasted it, it tastes very normal to me. I do get whole milk for my boys, and we go through it pretty quick.

I actually disagree with this suggestion because I find milk that has been frozen tastes different. It separates when it defrosts and that might be why. It may depend on the % though.

Yes, it separates when frozen. I think the percentage may have something to do with it. I've only frozen the whole milk, and I know it remixes and tastes fine after.
