You can freeze milk. There are, however, some facts regarding freezing this dairy beverage that you should be aware of.
When you should consider freezing milk?

The most important thing about freezing milk is that it’s not very beneficial to the drink. I’ll discuss this matter in more detail later. Because of that you should consider freezing milk only in some cases. If your milk is close to expiration date and you can’t use it within a couple of days, freezing it is probably the only option that allows you to preserve the beverage for future use. Another situation when freezing milk might be a good idea is when you buy milk in bulk because you need to drive an hour or so to the nearest store where milk is sold for a reasonable price. If that’s the case, you can also consider buying UHT (Ultra High Temperature) milk which is sold unrefrigerated and can be stored in the pantry for at least 6 months. If you don’t want to buy a UHT milk, you’d probably need to freeze most of your milk if you buy it in bulk.

Why not start drinking powdered?
Then yu eliminate this storage problem at 1 fell swoop.
Frozen milk will expand a lot and pop out of its container.
So better pour some out first if you are going to do this thing anyway.

I always freeze milk for those times I'm low and don't feel like going to the store for more.
I have a half gallon milk jug just for that purpose.
I buy a gallon and right away freeze a little less than half leaving room for the expansion that will occur while freezing.

I use so little that I buy half gallons and pour them into pint plastic
containers and freeze them. It has really cut down on wasted milk
for me.

And my Publix Market milk has the date in two places, and neither
specifies sell or use by.
