To all my dairy sensitive BFFs out there, we now have the answer to the very important question of "can you freeze almond milk?" Per Almond Breeze and Silk Pure's websites the verdict is... no. Though the nutritional value is not impacted, the freezing and thawing will cause separation of the milk resulting in a nasty new texture. If you're wondering about soy milk, cashew milk, or other similar milks, the answer is the same. The freezing and thawing will disrupt their textures and tastes. 

Can I Do It Anyways?

When the milk thaws the different parts that compose the almond milk separate. However, many almond milk drinkers say that they do it anyway. When you're ready to drink the frozen milk, just throw the carton in the fridge to thaw for a few hours. Whether store bought or homemade, they recommend stirring, shaking, or blending the thawed milk to mix it all back together.

The companies still think that the taste, color, and texture will be affected, but if you can look past minor changes, then go right ahead. Do not forget to freeze it in an air-tight container and pour a little out as it will expand when it freezes. These dare devil almond milk freezers say you can also freeze almond milk in ice cube trays too, if you want to blend the milk back together in select quantities.

Some Good News

Per Silk's website, they followed up the bad news with a comfort cushion. They say that though freezing almond milk for drinking purposes is not a great idea, all of their non-dairy milks can be frozen when used in a recipe. So if you want to make yourself some non-dairy frozen desserts, you're still able to do so!

Though the professionals say no to the question of can you freeze almond milk, most almond milk drinkers say go. If you're daring and wanting to try freezing it, just remember to reincorporate the milk by throwing it in a blender. Just be prepared for the color to be a tad different and for the possibility of the taste being the slightest bit off. If you are not on the adventurous side of milk storage and don't consume your milk fast enough, just buy smaller cartons.
