    Is this possible?

    I want to freeze them, and then take them on a day out, so they will still be cold when I drink them.

    Not sure if it is suitable though, so has anyone done this?

    I have frozen a banana tetra and it takes a while to thaw but it did work for me.

    It's fine to freeze them. Lots of people do it as it turns them into a type of icecream.

    Yep i have done this & works a treat. If you're going to be having them late in the day might help to have a little insulated bag to put them in - i used a bottle bag from when the children were babies :D - as they'll thaw out but still stay nice & cold.

    Still considering
    I tried this with the choc for the first time last night, and after feeling sad that the rest of the family had all tucked into ice cream and not me, found I had my very own bowlful. It was gorgeous, but quite rich. Only prob was my kids kept wanting to eat it because it was so nice. :):):)

    Ooooh I have just shared with my 3 kids, a frozen banana bliss. It was totally divine, as it has been sooooo hot today!!

    I shall be having a chocolate one tomorrow to try. I think this will definitely be a treat I can get used to!!

    Ah poo!

    My CDC has just phoned, as she emailed CD officially about freezing the packs, and they said "although they know some people do freeze them, they can't endorse it because they don't know if it changes the nutritional value of them"

    I just wanted to pass that on, so people can make an informed choice.

    Thanks for passing that on, but sure dont birdseye or some other frozen food company sell frozen peas on the fact that they are frozen on the day they are picked to give the best nutritional value, I'm thinking there will be little enough changes in values either way I'll keep doing it for the treat :)

    They were my sentiments hedgehog, but because I started the thread I thought I should pass on the info.

    I can't see it would add calories by freezing it, and it is a delicious treat.
