What can I do with it now?

I have half a gallon of Pygmy milk that did not withstand the freezing process. I was gonna make cheese, but read that it won't curd if it separated from freezing. Can I make ricotta? Cream cheese?

Anyone have experience with this?

(Shaking won't help, Pygmy milk has very high fat content like cow's milk.)

Regardless of wether it's pygmy or nigerian or any kind of milk, it will separate when frozen longer than a month.
I freeze milk in quart sized freezer bags and thaw them at room temp, usually on my sink board, once thawed I will put it in my blender to bring it back together before I refrigerate it.

Warming it in the microwave 20 seconds at a time, stirring between also helps. I always use frozen milk for cheeses as well as soap and use it to cook with, never any problem.
