Yes, you can freeze milk. The fat will separate upon thawing, so a lot of shaking will be needed to get it to look normal. Another way to stretch the milk is to dilute it with nonfat dry milk (prepared with water). Cut the regular milk with 1/3 of this mix. Most people say the taste doesn't change much. Another tip is to have them drink water when they are thirsty, and save milk for other things. They don't need that much milk to be healthy.
I found this on MISERLY MOMS web page hope this helps you. They have some very good things on this site for fugal living and making things at home. Good Luck!! (08/01/2007)
Yes, milk can be frozen! My grandmother is on social security and does her grocery shopping once a month. She purchases all of her milk at the begininng of the month and freezes them. (08/02/2007)
Absolutely! You might want to pour a bit out (and use it, of course!) as it tends to expand when it freezes. (08/02/2007)
Yes you can although like an above post you will have to adjust somewhat to the color and the cream separating if you use other than skim milk. I live in the country and keep at least 1/2 gallon frozen in case the winter weather gets too growly for me to get out to the store. Buying a months supply is very good idea. (08/02/2007)

I have been freezing milk for quite some time. It freezes well. Just leave some room in the top of the container for expansion. It does take a long time to thaw. Sometimes as much as two days. (08/02/2007)
I often freeze milk in 1 cup containers to use for baking later. (08/02/2007)

Yes you can freeze milk, I buy enough milk to last the whole week.. I buy HilO milk which is like skim milk, When you disfrost the milk just make sure you give it a good shake. My 3 kids love milk but it is becoming increasing expenisve in Australia due to the drought and the price of fuel. I make milo for them by mixing 2 teaspoons of milo powder with about 50 mls of hot water and then adding 250ml of milk. I also make them drink filtered tap water in between meals (08/02/2007)
I've found that all of the following freeze beautifully: whole milk, 2% milk, buttermilk, half and half, heavy whipping cream, and eggnog (a great way to save it as it's only available once a year). You can also freeze non-dairy liquid coffee creamers. These products expand when frozen so don't fill your containers all the way to the top. Thaw out in the refrigerator. Shake well before using
TO THE LADY WHO WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT FREEZING MILK. YOU SURE CAN, I'VE DONE IT FOR YEARS ESPECIALLY NOW THAT PRICES HERE IN THE WEST HAVE GONE UP AND BUYING A GALLON IS CHEAPER THAN A QUART. I POUR OFF ABOUT A QUART OF MILK TO BE USED FIRST AND FREEZE IN ORIGINAL CONTAINER OR DIVIDE REMAINDER INTO SMALLER AMOUNTS, NEVER FILLING TO THE TOP AS IT WILL EXPAND. I THAW IT OUT IN FRIDGE AND SHAKE BERORE USING.
Yes, you can freeze milk. It will have a yellow cast to it due to the separation of the butterfat but a little shaking and it tastes the same. To stretch milk I buy a gallon of whole milk, make a gallon of instant milk (Powdered milk) and mix the two. Tastes like 2%. (08/04/2007)
