Too Much Milk

Ask a Question

I accidentally bought 2 4pt milk with asda shop but I'd only opened 2 earlier in the day need ideas to use it up. Other than just drinking. Normally we would make angel delight but have none left

My first thought was to freeze it, if you have room. (possibly decant it into smaller suitable containers) You've got Pancake day coming up so it could be used then.

Depends if you're keen on these types cheese but you can make mozzarella, paneer or ricotta.

It's surprising how few people realise milk can be frozen, the plastic containers it usually comes in are perfectly adequate (I've never had any problem with them).

It's also a good way to "fill up" a freezer, the fuller freezers are the more efficient they are and the less power they use.

It usually takes a few days to defrost the larger containers at room temperature, so some in a small container, that can be defrosted more quickly in a microwave is advisable for an emergency.

Got any bananas?

Maybe you could make a smoothie/milkshake if you have a hand blender.

You can try to make some ice cream with milk .. you don't need an ice cream maker and it requires minimal ingredients.

Breakfast cereal or muesli, doesn't have to be reserved for first thing in the day, either make a good snack or even a supper.

You can freeze milk quite happily. I do it all the time and it means I never run out of milk. I either decant into empty washed milk containers or the plastic drinking bottles.

Imnotcheap oh dear, but that doesn't mean you can't do it again. I guess you mean freezer draw but hope you didn't mean a glass bottle as I know plastic can crack if frozen and dropped.

Now I may sound clueless suggesting this... But why don't you freeze it and use it when you need it? πŸ€”
