Do you spend too much time dreading that you'll open the fridge to expired milk? Or perhaps you're hoping to save some money and make the most of a sale on milk at the store. So if you've ever wondered "can you freeze milk?" The answer is yes! Milk that has been thawed is safe to drink, and it doesn't affect the nutritional value. So whatever your reasons, milk freezing is perfectly safe. Here are some things you want to keep in mind.


1. Milk Expands

When milk freezes, you'll find that it fills more of the container than when it's in liquid form. While this doesn't sound like a big deal, if you have frozen your milk in a glass jar, it can cause the glass to shatter. Even if it is in a plastic bottle, it can burst in the freezer and make a mess. To prevent this, make sure that you have emptied a cup or so of milk from the container. This gives the milk all the room it needs to expand.
