We’ve seen cheese made from breast milk, but ice cream? That’s a little too close to home for me. If the thought of mother’s milk appeals to you, you can hotfoot it to the Icecreamists parlour in London’s Covent Garden, which is selling the Baby Gaga bowl of icecream for £14 ($22).
Each donor is being paid £15 ($24) for every 295mL of milk extracted using breast pumps – which a mother friend of mine told me would take an hour to pump. That milk would be better off being donated to children in hospitals than feeding screaming Londoners desperate for a quick twitpic to brag about, but the Icecreamists has at least chosen to blend the breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest.
