I really like freezing things to make them last longer.  

 

Remember awhile ago when I discovered you can freeze coffee creamer? I still do that ALL THE TIME and it's like the best trick ever.

 

Last weekend I was getting ready to go out of town for a few days (oh, did I mention we went to Rochester for a few days? haha, yep!) and we still had a half-full (biiiig) container of plain greek yogurt in the fridge. I wasn't sure if it would last so I decided to freeze it.

 

I thought about just throwing the whole container in the freezer, but I wasn't sure if it would be scoopable once frozen, so I figured I should freeze it into cubes in our ice cube tray. I wrapped up the tray in saran wrap so it wouldn't get weird smells from the freezer.

 

Once frozen, (which probably took only a few hours, but I left them for almost a week, haha oops) I popped them out and into a ziploc bag, and put them back in the freezer for later use.

 

BOOM! Now I have frozen greek yogurt cubes to put in smoothies :)

 

Note: I haven't tried melting it back to normal yogurt consistency, so I'm not sure if you could like thaw it back out and eat it like yogurt again. If you try that, let me know how it goes!!

 

 

What kinds of things do you freeze?

I freeze: bread, coffee creamer, cookie dough balls (just make cookie dough, roll into balls, freeze, and when you're ready to bake just add a minute or two extra onto the cooking time!), bananas for smoothies (peel them and cut into 3 or 4 pieces before freezing!), meat, and right now I even have a ziploc full of crushed tomatoes because I could only find a can 2x bigger than what I needed for a recipe!
