Better Make Mine a Double

Mmm, mmm, mmm, just like Momma used to make!
If you've been around the any of my blog posts for a while you know that I have a thing for 'Cows'.


Because cows are wonderful animals.  They're cool to look at, they are an excellent source of food, AND a cow would never steal your wallet even if you left it out on your dresser.

As it turns out, someone's looking to give my friend Bossie a run for her money when it comes to a previously-cow-based-food group.  Okay, maybe ice cream is not OFFICIALLY a food group, but if anyone asks me, I put it right up there with the 'Snickers' food group.

Yes, someone has begun making ice cream out of...

Breast Milk

So as to NOT mess up the details of this very important story, allow me to post a few excerpts here from the article I found on both and

LONDON (Reuters Life!) – A specialist ice cream parlor plans to serve up breast milk ice cream and says people should think of it as an organic, free-range treat.

The breast milk concoction, called the "Baby Gaga," will be available from Friday at the Icecreamists restaurant in London's Covent Garden.

Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor was confident his take on the "miracle of motherhood" and priced at a hefty 14 pounds ($23) a serving will go down a treat with the paying public.
Victoria Hiley, 35, from London was one of 15 women who donated milk to the restaurant after seeing the advert.

Hiley works with women who have problems breast-feeding their babies. She said she believes that if adults realized how tasty breast milk actually is, then new mothers would be more willing to breast-feed their own newborns.

"What could be more natural than fresh, free-range mother's milk in an ice cream? And for me it's a recession beater too -- what's the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash," Hiley said in a statement.

"I tried the product for the first time today -- it's very nice, it really melts in the mouth."

The Baby Gaga recipe blends breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest, which is then churned into ice cream.

All rightey then...

The next time you have that craving for 'free range mother's milk' - head on over to London and ask for a double scoop of Baby Gaga ice cream.

Just make sure you don't mistakenly ask for a double scoop of Lady Gaga. 

Why?  Because it's cheap, it's tacky, it's hard to dance to, and something tells me that you'll need a couple of antibiotic shooters after a single scoop of this particular non-dairy product.
Cherry on top?  No, I don't think so...
