We all know that coconut milk is a great ingredient to have around the house. It can be used for anything from curries, sauces, and even coffee creamer! But what do you do if you end up with an excess of it? You could throw it out or make some fresh coconut yogurt, but did you know that there’s one more option? You can freeze it! Freezing your coconut milk has many benefits. On top of saving money because frozen items don’t spoil as quickly as their fresh counterparts, freezing will also allow for long-term storage in case of emergencies. Of course, you could always just buy the canned stuff that lasts 5 years. But assuming you don’t want to…
Freezing coconut milk is a great option because it’s easy to store, freezes quickly, and won’t spoil as fast. The only downside? Thawing the frozen item will result in an awful texture that needs to be blended for at least 20 seconds before use. But if you’re looking for convenience or just want to save money by buying bulk, freezing it should do the trick!
