Breast milk ice-cream anyone?
A new range of dessert called Baby Gaga is made available at a restaurant in London's Covent Garden. What's different with this ice cream that got people talking? It's made with breast milk.
Each serving of Baby Gaga at Icecreamists costs £14.
According to BBC Uk, one of the women, Victoria Hiley, 35, said if adults realised how tasty breast milk was more new mothers would be encouraged to breastfeed. Mrs Hiley's donation was expressed on site and pasteurised before being churned with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest.
The latest Baby Gaga dessert is churned with donations from 15 women who responded to an advertisement on an online mothers' forum, the BBC UK online reports.
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.
"Some people will hear about it and go yuck - but actually it's pure organic, free-range and totally natural."
Mr O'Connor said health checks for the lactating women were the same used by hospitals to screen blood donors.
"No-one's done anything interesting with ice cream in the last hundred years," he added. - BBC Uk
