How to Freeze Angel Delight

First, let’s start with the basics and assume you’ve made a few pots of Angel Delight. This is the easiest and most common way to freeze it:

  1. Make Your Angel Delight: First, make your favourite Angel Delight in freezer-friendly pots.
  2. Protect It: Once the Angel Delight has set, wrap the top in clingfilm to seal it from any air. Next, wrap it in a further layer of foil. This will further prevent air from getting to your Angel Delight. You don’t want your Angel Delight to get a case of freezer burn.
  3. Freeze: Place the pots in the freezer.

And that’s all there is to it.

  1. Prepare Your Angel Delight: Grab an ice lolly mould and make your Angel Delight as per the instructions in a jug.
  2. Pour into Moulds: Once you’ve made the Angel Delight, pour it into your ice lolly mould and place the mould into the freezer.
  3. Freeze: Allow it to freeze.

3 Tips for Freezing Angel Delight

Now you know how to freeze it, we’ve got our 3 top tips which we strongly recommend following when freezing Angel Delight to have the best results:

Make Lollies
Lollies are a great way to use up Angel Delight and then store it in the freezer. Just make your Angel Delight as you normally would then pour into moulds. You’ll be left with creamy lollies.

Always Protect
Angel Delight will change texture if impacted by oxidation. That’s why it’s vital that you ensure they are frozen airtight.

Defrost Slowly
If you plan on enjoying your Angel Delight as a mousse then ensure you thaw it slowly, in the fridge, overnight. This will prevent any dramatic and unwanted textural changes.

How Long Can You Freeze Angel Delight?

To reduce the risk of freezer burn and to avoid the flavour of the Angel Delight completely degrading we would recommend consuming your frozen Angel Delight within 3 months.

To avoid going over this date, it’s a good idea to label them with the date they need to be consumed.

How Long Does Angel Delight Last in the Fridge?

Once an Angel Delight has been made, it will only last for 24 hours in the fridge. This is why it’s a good idea to consume it on the day it is made and set.

How Do You Defrost Angel Delight?

If you’ve made lollies then, obviously, there’s no need to defrost them at all. If you’re looking to defrost a mousse, then place the pot in the fridge to thaw overnight before consuming.

Can You Refreeze Angel Delight?

We cannot recommend refreezing Angel Delight.

Dairy products can be quite temperamental at the best of times when it comes to freezing. Refreezing dairy, such as the milk in Angel Delight, can lead to disastrous results with the texture.

Does Angel Delight Freeze Well?

Not particularly well… If you’re making Angel Delight lollies then these will freeze fine as you’ll be consuming them directly from the freezer. However, if you were hoping to freeze Angel Delight mousse, defrost it and then consume it…

Well, you’ll be disappointed.

The flavour will be fine but the texture won’t be quite as light and airy as freshly made Angel Delight.

Related FAQs

If you’ve still got questions about freezing Angel Delight or Angel Delight in general, then these may help:

Does Angel Delight Go Off?

Yes, Angel Delight will have a date on the packet when you should throw it out. This is because, beyond this date, there is a risk that the Angel Delight will not set as well.

Can You Freeze Angel Delight to Make Ice Cream?

Although it will freeze it to a slightly cream, flavoured mass, it wouldn’t be right to call this ice cream. So, you cannot simply freeze Angel Delight to make ice cream.
