London Restaurant Serves Breast Milk Ice Cream
A London-based restaurant has given its customers a healthy way to cap their meals—with a serving of breast milk ice cream.
Yup, no typos there. The restaurant located in the Covent Garden district has developed an “organic free-range” ice cream with breast milk as its main ingredient. The “Baby Gaga,” as the ice cream is called, is made from pure breast milk, which is then mixed with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest. The breast milk was provided by 15 women who reportedly donated their so-called miracle of motherhood after seeing an advertisement posted on an online forum for moms. One of the mothers who donated her milk said the “Baby Gaga” is a winner. “I tried the product for the first time today — it’s very nice, it really melts in the mouth,” breast milk donor Victoria Hiley was quoted as saying in a Reuters report.
The “Baby Gaga” was developed by The Icecreamists founder Matt O’Connor, who expressed confidence that the public would eventually go gaga over the breast milk ice cream despite its $23 price and “eww” factor. “Some people will hear about it and go, ‘yuck’ but actually it’s pure, organic, free-range and totally natural,” he said.
