Here are 10 free ALDI freezer meal plans that will help you stock your freezer with healthy and delicious dinners. Each freezer meal plan includes free printable recipes and a grocery list, so the process couldn’t be easier. I made seven of the freezer meal plans myself and they changed my life! (like all those crockpot freezer meals did too!)
If you’ve never frozen a meal for your crockpot before, prepare to be amazed. All you need to do is combine the ingredients in gallon-sized plastic bags and freeze. I’ve made hundreds of freezer meals myself and I’ll never go back to scrambling for dinner at 5pm.
Since the meals are so easy to prepare, I like to spend an hour on the weekend making 6-8 at once. That way my freezer is stocked with meals for the week and I don’t have to do any extra cooking. In the morning all I have to do is dump a freezer meal into my crockpot and dinner is done. (And, boy, does my house smell amazing!)
The great thing about making these meals from groceries at ALDI is that they’re healthy and budget-friendly. I’m including links to the original blog posts with free printable recipes and grocery lists. Enjoy, Friends!
10 Free ALDI Freezer Meal Plans That Will Literally Change Your Life
6 Budget-Friendly Crockpot Freezer Meals in One Hour ($26.40 or only $4.40/meal!) – This freezer meal plan includes recipes for white chicken chili, ham and potato soup, and hamburger vegetable soup. To save time and money, you double each recipe and make two of each. These are the most budget-friendly meals that I’ve ever made.
9 Gluten-Free Crockpot Freezer Meals in 90 Minutes ($85 or $9.44/meal) – This freezer meal plan includes recipes for white chicken chili, strawberry balsamic chicken, zuppa toscana with sweet potatoes, chicken sausage and peppers (also great in the oven), ham and sweet potato soup, Italian chicken with baby spinach, beef and black bean chili, sausage-stuffed mini peppers (crockpot or oven), and chicken and rice soup. The groceries for this plan are more expensive because they include a lot of organic ingredients.

8 Freezer Meals from Queen of Free ($50 or $6.25/meal) – This freezer meal plan includes recipes for turkey black bean chili, Italian lasagna, pizza soup, pizza lasagna, chicken salsa soup, chicken pesto soup, chicken enchilada lasagna, and BBQ chicken hashbrown pie. Some of these meals require cooking before freezing, but I like the casserole options in addition to crockpot.

I love this. I freeze a lot. It helps on time and having to run out to get stuff.

I had a friend who was so organised she put me to shame, one of the things she did was cook on a monday for the rest of the week, freezing each dish. she would literally cook all day long. I will show this page to her as it is a fantastic idea. Perfect for busy mums.

I can’t find a link to get the 10 free freezer meals from Aldo? Help please.
This looks great! Thank you. How many servings per meal?
It varies per recipe, but the average is 4-6 and is usually included in the printable recipe doc.
