Can You Freeze Coconut Milk? Yes, It’s Easy!

Can you freeze coconut milk? The answer is YES, and it’s incredibly easy to do! Here’s how to freeze coconut milk in two different ways.

Prep: 5Total: 5 minutes
Servings: 8


  • Coconut milk
  • Ice cube trays
  • Freezer safe storage container


To Freeze in Ice Cube Trays:

  1. Pour the leftover coconut milk directly into an ice cube tray. I recommend using a silicone ice cube tray with a lid so that it’s easy to pop individual cubes out of the container.
  2. Cover the tray with a lid (if applicable) and place the tray in the freezer to set overnight.
  3. Remove the frozen coconut milk cubes out of the tray and place them in a sealable freezer-safe storage bag. You may find the coconut milk cubes pop out of the tray easier after the tray has been sitting at room temperature for 3-5 minutes. Label the bag with the date frozen so you know when to use it.

To Freeze in Containers:

  1. Pour leftover coconut milk into a sealable storage container. I like to use a sealable silicone zip top storage container or snap-tight glass storage container. Make sure to leave plenty of room as liquid expands when frozen.
  2. Label the container with the date so you know when to use it.
  3. Store it in the freezer.


  1. Ice cube tray sizes can vary, but standard trays typically hold about one ounce in each cube (or 2 tablespoons).
  2. Always blend your thawed coconut milk. Use a standard blender or stick blender to blend the milk right in the container.

  3. Don’t plan on drinking thawed coconut milk. Use it in recipes that have added liquid ingredients or baked goods.
