Dairy Products you can freeze

 

As a couponer, you usually want to freeze items that you may have stocked up on. I get this question often–so I thought I would make a list of Dairy items that you can freeze:

  • Butter: Unsalted butter loses flavor so its storage time is shorter. Flavored butter freezes well.
  • Cheese: Hard or semi-hard cheeses can be frozen. Along with Shredded Cheese
  • Cottage Cheese: Cream style and dry cottage cheese and ricotta cheese can be frozen for a month.
  • Cream Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Sour Cream — this usually separates from its water but it can still be used to cook with. I would not suggest eating it out of the container.
What else do you freeze?

 

  • Charlotte says:

    Just know that once frozen and then defrosted you cannot refreeze, because it ruins the consistancy of most items. (yogurt, sour cream, cott cz). Oh, and a gallon of milk frozen takes like 4 or more days in the frig to defrost. (keep shaking it)

    What about breads? It’s much cheaper to buy big packs of hotdog buns and stuff like that at Sams Club then to buy a small pack else where. But I don’t always need so much

  • Eleanor says:

    Awesome thanks! Do you ladies put them in freezer bags or just in the packages they come in?

  • Julie M. says:

    Ohh and coffee creamer

  • Alex says:

    I have never tried freezing cream cheese. Does it defrost the same consistency? I’ve heard its grainy and a weird textured afterwards.

  • Babs says:

    Cream cheese has a tiny lumpy consistency after bein fzn. My family won’t use it as a spread so I use it in baking. FYI

  • Rissa says:

    I froze almond milk in the original container (some recommend pouring some out for expansion) and thawed it in the fridge (takes 2 days). It separates after thawing but I pour the whole thing into my blender and switch on to high to fix that. I don’t notice a difference in quality. 🙂

  • Michele says:

    I squeeze lemons and freeze them in ice cube trays – then transfer to ziploc baggies. Then I always have fresh lemon juice on hand and don’t have to go to the trouble of getting out the juicer every time I need some.
    I also freeze bell peppers. (sliced/diced first) Makes using a recipe with them so much easier. I don’t recommend doing this for eating them straight though. The get a bit mushy while defrosting.

    YOGURT, ACTIVIA IN SPECIFIC. BUT WHAT I HAVE NOTICED IS THAT ONCE THE EXPIRATION HAS PAST IN THIS SPECIFIC BRAND; AND EVEN IF YOU DEFROST IT DAYS BEFORE, IT STILL GOES BAD :/
