How to Freeze and Defrost Almond Milk

Posted on June 2, 2011


I like to stock up on almond milk when it is on sale.  My refrigerator is just not big enough to store a lot of extra cartons of milk, so I store the stockpile in my deep-freezer.

Yes, you can freeze milk!  You just need to blend it to reconstitute it, since it separates once you defrost it.  I learned this tip from my grand-parents who used to travel to the Commissary once a month to stock-up on their grocery staples.

A couple of days ago, when we were getting low on milk, I pulled a carton of almond milk out of the freezer and let it sit on the counter for a few hours to defrost.  It only took a minute to run it through the blender to make it “look” like almond milk again!

When your favorite plant milk goes on sale, and you have coupons to match with the sale, it is a great time to stock-up.  Below is a current deal on almond milk and tips on how to purchase several months worth of milk for your family in a very cost-effective way.

**Current Deal:  Almond Breeze is on sale for $3 at Publix now through June 16.  Use with this 50¢/1 Blue Diamond Almond Breeze printable coupon to make it $2.50 each.**

Occasionally, you will see Almond Breeze on sale for $2.50 before coupons.  Keep an eye out for any store coupons to stack with manufacturer coupons, if your store allows competitor coupons, too.  Also, if your store allows double-couponing, and milk is on sale, that would be an excellent time to buy at least a case of milk to freeze!
