Easy way to freeze coffee creamer

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have tried coffee creamer in my BC to change the flavor, and I love it! However, I dont make a lot of cakes, and I dont want 10 in a row with the same flavor... but if I freeze the coffee creamer, when I thaw it, I am back to the same problem, all that creamer and no way to use it... until now.

Freeze the creamer in ice cube trays! Use your tablespoon and measure 2 tablespoons in each cube. Place all the "creamer cubes" in a freezer bag when frozen and lable with the creamer flavor. When you wish to use that flavor, you just take out, say 3 cubes and defrost.

Volia!

Thanks for the tip! I'm sure it will come in very handy...especially since a lot of people have been asking if they can freeze it!
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

Thanks so much for the post. I have yet to use coffee creamer in my BC but now that I know we can freeze it...it's on my list to do.

Great idea - you're my new hero as I've thrown out some goodies in the past.

Along the same lines, I just pour a specific amount into a small freezer bag (1/4 c, 2/3c, etc.) seal, label and freeze. Grab one freezer bag when needed. Since they are in liquid form going into the freezer, I can lay them flat, stack them and then I put them in a larger ziplock so they don't slide all over the place.

I tried this with the ID coffee creamers, and they never froze solid enough for me to take out of the ice cube trays, what is your secret?

uuhh, I love the idea, thank you so much. But so many flavors out there, what's a girl to do. Guess I need a new freezer!

Mine wouldn't freeze either. I hope someone can solve our problem!

I have a deep freeze in my basement that I use. I dont know if maybe its colder then my freezer upstairs or not. I have had a few times where they were mushy in the middle. 90% of the time they freeze all the way through. I am not sure what I do differently that causes them not to freeze, I just chalk it up to "user malfunction".

so... do you just thaw it in the fridge and it's all ready to use and tastes exactly the same?

Can regualar (heavy or lite) cream be frozen the same way and still have it come out ok?

Oh good! Now I'll be looking at what flavors are new on the shelf. The cubes'll work but i like the zip bag idea for my space. Label and put em all in a bigger bag and there you go. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

I used the ice cube tray for freezing breast milk when I was nursing my now 11 year old son. It worked great for when just a little more was needed - sorry - probably more than you wanted to know! icon_wink.gif

Debbie, That's not a bad idea at all, as long as it's only for your baby's consumption. LOL I had a co-worker who told us that she ran out of milk once and used some of her breast milk, in a bottle in the frig, to make gravey for dinner. Her family never knew. Uh yah, that was waaay more than we wanted to know. LOL
