Kroger has Silk chocolate mint, pumpkin spice, and egg nog on sale for one dollar. Being the bargain shopper that I am, I'm all giddy about having a ton of this wonderful stuff for smoothies and so forth. Just wondering- would freezing it would affect the texture after it's thawed?

I wouldn't see why not. Regular creamer can be frozen. make sure you shake well after being thawed!

I was actually wondering if it could be frozen as well. So many recipes use unsweetened plain soy milk and I usually only have the regular vanilla on hand. If I buy a carton just to use a cup of milk it just sits in my fridge and goes bad. I think next time I have to buy a carton I'm going to use what I need and freeze the rest in a storage container and see what happens...

Can I freeze Silk soymilk?

We do not recommend freezing Silk for storage. Although freezing does not affect the safety or nutritional value of the product, frozen-then-thawed Silk is dramatically inferior in texture.

From: Silk FAQ's

If you must freeze it, I would test with a small amount and see if you like how it comes out when thawed.

can you store them in the fridge unopened then? How far away are the expiration dates?

I haven't frozen and then thawed, but I have frozen and then eaten frozen soy milk as popsicles. It freezes just fine. I suspect it would thaw out just fine too.

I vaguely recall freezing some, and it seemed to thaw badly, with small solid bits floating to the top...I don't think it really works, so would also recommend experimenting.

I store my soya milk without using the fridge. It doesn't seem to need refrigerating, unless it is opened.

The expiration dates were Jan.27 and Feb 1. I'll probably pick up a couple and see what happens. Thanks a lot for the information. I appreciate your help.

i think unopened, they will last even longer than that. Soy milk doesn't spoil like cow's milk does, so I think you could still hang on to them longer than the exp dates, then when open, use 'em up!

Good thinking. That's exactly what I will do. Thanks, Jess!

unopened, they will last several months on the shelf, with no issues.

Some soymilk is aseptically packaged and shelf stable. The flavored Silk varieties I've seen have been refrigerated, and must be kept refrigerated.
