Freezing milk in ice-cube trays for smoothies?
Just a moment ago, while in the shower, I got what I think is a very clever solution to problem:
I recently switched to grass-fed, organic raw milk.
The brand I feel most comfortable with only comes in 1 gallon sizes.
I can't drink that much milk a week.
So, instead of having unused milk go to waste, I was thinking I'd freeze it in ice-cube trays, and use that in my Vitamix when making smoothies.
I typically add several ounces of grass fed heavy cream, and frozen cantaloupe so I'm hoping the consistency won't be too off.
By chance, has anyone here ever frozen milk? Any ideas, suggestions, thoughts?

Wow! Excellent link !!!!
I will make sure to rotate any frozen milk to minimize the length of freeze-time.
Even if it's not as awesome and raw-fresh, it's still organic, grass fed.
Because I had soo much milk, I cooked some rice in milk (yes, I realize that totally destroys the raw-ness of it),
I freeze coconut milk for smoothies in trays. Not only for the taste but the frozen block makes the smoothie extra rich and creamy when blended.
Standard milk, soy, rice, coconut they all work well.
