    If you freeze milk...will that make it last longer in the fridge?

    It's really hard to pour when frozen. There are no fast methods to thaw that will make it safe to keep, so I wouldn't.

    You've had ice cream right? That's frozen milk w/ air whipped in while freezing. Melted ice cream, altho not as good as the frozen version, still tastes ok.

    You can freeze it without any wierd side effects. Personally I would just buy less milk.

    You can freeze it, but I wouldn't unless you are planning on partially freezing it and using it to make milkshakes... A few frozen milk shards with ice cream and milk makes a milkshake 100 times better...

    Soy milk lasts longer than regular milk. Plus, it tastes better and is better for you. Tho I only like regular, not the vanilla version.

    I dont think she saw that thread. I'll have to fill her in I guess.
    Hey, BTW, we may be visiting my mom in CO. around June, so if you want to ride again...

    Not sure about riding. I've been mostly a roadie and my mtb skillz have disappeared, so you'd get bored, but let's get a beer or black tar.

    Is your mom single yet? Cuz I'd sure like to hit that.

    Growing up we froze milk all the time, the only problem is it takes a very long time to thaw.

    I wonder if you could freeze some cream into cubes so you can just throw them into a cup of scalding hot coffee and have a drinkable temp cup of coffee in no time...?
