I do not like to freeze any that have milk in it; the texture changes and we don't think it tastes as good. I have made this one with two percent milk....

They are probably referring to evaporated milk. You would probably have to reduce the other liquids or cook it down longer so it gets the right consistency. Soups will milk/cream tend to separate when frozen and become watery.

I never freeze soup with milk in it. If I need to freeze some of the soup, I freeze before adding the milk. Then add the milk once the soup is thawed.

Freezing will likely cause texture changes. If it's a smooth soup, no chunky veggies, you can defrost, warm, then buzz with immersion blender. That generally incorporates and creams it back up. If still thin you can stir in some Wondra till it thickens to you liking.
