Can I freeze soup containing coconut milk?

Never done it before but I love the soup and can't possibly eat it all. Hmmmm. (Slow-roasted eggplant-tomato soup with toasted Indian spices -- YUM)

    Yep, you can, just thaw it completely before you try to heat it back up and then heat it back up gently to keep it from breaking.

      Sounds delish. I've frozen soups and sauces made with coconut milk with no problems. The items on my "not to freeze" list are mainly those containing noodles, rice or potatoes because their texture doesn't hold up after being frozen and thawed.

        Add anything containing gelatin, mayonnaise and hard-cooked eggs to your "Do Not Freeze" list. None of these benefits from freezing.
