Would You Like to Eat Ice Cream Made from Human Breast Milk?

Of course you would! After all, it makes for good cheese. So you're in luck: there's a shop in London that sells ice cream made from milk donated by local mothers.

The dessert, called Baby Gaga, is churned with donations from 15 women who responded to an advertisement on an online mothers' forum.

One of the women, Victoria Hiley, 35, said if adults realised how tasty breast milk was more new mothers would be encouraged to breastfeed.

Each serving of Baby Gaga at Icecreamists costs £14.

Mrs Hiley's donation was expressed on site and pasteurised before being churned with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest.

Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor placed an advert appealing for breast milk donations and believes his new recipe will be a success.[...]

"If it's good enough for our children, it's good enough for the rest of us," he said.

i dont see the difference! we drink milk from all kinds of animals, goats,cows,etc..and the milk is checked and sterile,look how many cows had mad cow disease before it was checked? did it stop many from drinking milk? no! but i would donate mine to preemies or critically ill infants first..but alot of new,single moms with xtra milk would have a new way to provide for their family too by selling extra breastmilk..not any different then donating blood or semen..they are all body secretions and this one is very healthy for u

I always thought that this and breast milk butter would be perfect to market to Vegans as no animals were harmed in there making. I assume the Women were paid for the milk. But I'm sure that Vegans would just complain that the mothers weren't vegans themselves.

@Max Power:

No. And I didn't say that.

In any case: if it's safe enough for newborns; I'll take my chances.

And according to the article the milk has been pasteurized.

hmm, I know urine is sterile. Mothermilk is not. It contains bifidus bacteria and lacto germs. And you thought of yourself as a walking encyclopedia, huh?

>>Milk donated by local mothers could have been given to infants whose mothers don't produce enough. What a waste.

Maybe we shouldn't be eating ice cream at all, no matter what kind of milk is used, I dunno.

>>So breast milk is sterile.. right. Sure why not, I mean, it's the internet. We can say anything.

Here's another shocker for you: urine is sterile. The things you learn on the internet eh?

>>That said, I'm going to need to see what these 15 chicks look like before I start in on a "boobie sundae."

A picture of the boobs in question on the menu would be nice.

>>Biohazard. And no, I don't drink cow's milk, either.
