It seems as though many recipes call for only part of a can or container of coconut milk. But if you have stored coconut milk in the refrigerator, you know it doesn’t last that long. But you can easily freeze coconut milk for future use!
To freeze coconut milk, first ensure it is stirred well. Then pour into ice cube trays and freeze. Once frozen, pop the cubes out and store them in a ziploc freezer bag. To thaw, they will generally thaw at room temperature very quickly, but you can also add them frozen to sauces you are heating.
Don’t forget that all ice cube trays are different sizes, so pour water into one of the cubes via teaspoons so you can measure how much coconut milk is in each frozen cube.
