View Full Version : can nut milks be frozen?

normally this is not an issue as we drink them quickly. but i remember once after just having blended a batch, we learned that we needed to leave town for a week and when we returned i threw it all out. no biggie, but i now wonder if i could have frozen it.
if the answer is yes then do you know how long it can keep frozen and if the taste or consistency changes after defrosting?
thanks and blessings to all!

I know someone that freezes smoothies all the time and it works fine. I don't see why not for nut milk... give it a try for a week and see what happens!

thanks, sheryl, i will! :)
I know your question has already been answered, but I just wanted to offer a tip. Freeze nut milks in ice cube trays. Then, once they're frozen, you can pop them out into a freezer bag to save space and free up your ice cube trays. It's very handy to have nut milk frozen in small chunks rather than in a tub or something. You can use the cubes to make FANTASTIC milkshakes!! My all time favorite is a simple strawberry milkshake made with fresh nut milk, frozen strawberries, a few frozen nut milk cubes, and a dash of agave. SOOOOO good!

I'm bumping this one up because I accidentally did this the other day! <g>
I had just made the nut milk and thought I'd be offering it to either family or friends shortly, can't remember who. Anyway, it was at room temperature and all cooked-fooders who've had it prefer it cold so I stuck it in the freezer. My new apartment's fridge has a great freezer so I knew that 1/2 hour would do the trick. But I forgot about it and left it there overnight!!
No problem, as it turned out. I put it in the fridge the next morning and was able to drink it fairly soon afterwards. I didn't notice any difference in the milk, the "milk" and water mixed together as usual by just shaking.
So in a pinch, it might be an idea when large number of people coming over and need to make it in advance, etc., where frozen might make this easier.
