Coffee is an important part of many people’s mornings. It’s what gets them out of bed and ready to conquer the day. Coffee give you energy and helps you to feel more awake. 

Plus it tastes so good. 

Some like their coffee to be black with nothing added in. They prefer the strong and bitter taste of just plain coffee. 

Others like to sweeten things up a little bit by adding in some creamer. It makes the coffee more creamy and flavorful. 

You can choose from so many types and flavors of creamers so you can enjoy great tasting coffee every morning. If you are a coffee lover (or should I say creamer with a little bit of coffee lover), then you probably always like to keep some of the sweet stuff on hand. 

You always have a bottle or two of flavorful creamer sitting in your refrigerator ready to be poured and enjoyed ina mug of hot coffee. But, you don’t want the creamer to go bad. 

After a few weeks the creamer is no longer good and if you have several bottles of it they could very well go bad. 

You don’t want to have to toss them. This can prompt you to ask, can creamer be frozen?

Coffee creamer can be frozen. If you always like to keep creamer on hand and want to save it for later, you can freeze it. Just place the whole bottle in the freezer and save for 4 to 6 months until you want to use it.

Freezing creamer is a good idea if you want to save it for weeks or months later. After a few weeks, creamer will start to go bad and you don’t want to have to throw it away. Instead, if you have picked up an extra bottle, just put it in the freezer and save it for when it’s time to open another bottle. 

If you properly freeze the creamer then it will last for 4 to 6 months while frozen and still taste good after it is defrosted and used in your coffee. Be sure to label the bottle with the current date before placing it into the freezer so you know when you put it in there and when you should use it by. 

The website Lucky Belly talks about freezing coffee creamer. In their article,

Can You Freeze Liquid Coffee Creamer? they say, 

“The good news is, as long as you understand that it is not recommended by the companies making these products, there is nothing to stop you freezing them – and many people have reported great results…” So, go ahead stock up on your delicious coffee creamers to save for later.

Do Creamers Freeze Well?

Creamer just adds so much to your strong and bitter coffee turning it into a sweet and creamy beverage. If you want to save creamer for weeks or months by freezing it, does it freeze well?

If you want to store creamer in the freezer, you can. Creamer does freeze well and this goes for powered or liquid creamers. Use the creamer up within 6 months of freezing and it will still taste great when added to your morning coffee.

Keep the coffee creamer for longer by freezing it. Coffee creamer has a relatively short shelf life and should be consumed quickly so if you don’t think you will be able to finish it off before it goes bad, freeze it! 

This way you can keep the creamer for 4 to 6 months from when you labeled it and it will still taste good after it has been defrosted. 

If you are worried if the creamer will freeze well, don’t be. Freezing it won’t affect its texture or taste and it will still be a delicious add-in to your coffee. 

Just be sure to use it within 4 to 6 months because after this it will start to lose some of its quality. You can freeze powdered or liquid creamers and they both freeze well. 

If you use creamer often in your coffee and don’t want it to go bad, try freezing it to save it for future use.

How Do You Defrost Coffee Creamer?

If you have a lot of coffee creamer you want to save for later, it will last for a while in the freezer. When the time comes when you want to use it, how do you defrost the coffee creamer?

You should defrost coffee creamer by placing it in the fridge to thaw for several hours. You can even use the creamer frozen if you’d like. To defrost, just let the bottle sit in the fridge for a day or two and it will become liquid again. Then shake well and use as normal. 

Defrosting coffee creamer after it has been frozen is easy. All you have to do is transfer the frozen creamer to the fridge and let it sit and thaw for several hours. Sometimes this can take a day or two depending on the size of the container. 

After the creamer is thawed it is recommended you use it up within a week or two before it goes bad. You should never try to refreeze a defrosted coffee creamer. So, only thaw if you are absolutely sure you will be using it within the next couple of weeks. 

Otherwise, the longer you keep it, the more it will lose quality and go bad. 

To avoid throwing away the creamer, try freezing smaller portions since this can be done, too. You can freeze the entire bottle, but when this is impractical for you, portion out the creamer and freeze in containers or freezer bags. 

This is great if you only want to thaw and use a little at a time. This is especially helpful if you don’t want to use the whole bottle within a few weeks. 

Final Thoughts

Coffee creamer can be frozen! I know all of you who use creamer in your coffee daily are just as excited about this as I am. This means you can stock up on your favorite creamers and have them available to you wherever you want to use them. 

You can freeze liquid creamer as well as powdered creamer. As long as it has been properly frozen and is used within a certain amount of time, it will freeze well. 

Just remember to label the bottle, freezer bag, or freezer container the creamer is in and use within 4 to 6 months. 

When it’s time to use the frozen creamer just transfer it to the fridge to defrost. After being frozen and thawed the creamer will still taste good but it will need to be shaken. 

You can then enjoy the delicious creamer within a week or two.  Freezing creamer is simple and easy to do and helps you save your favorite flavors for later.
