The next time you’re in London and craving ice cream, head to the Icecreamists and try a scoop of “Baby Gaga.” The shop, located in Covent Garden, just introduced a new flavor of ice cream created from the breast milk of mothers. 15 women donated their breast milk (which was screened meticulously) after seeing an advertisement on the parent news site, Mumsnet.
Flavored with Madagascan and lemon zest, the ice cream sold out within the first few days, even though it cost 14 pounds per serving (that’s roughly $23 USD). The shop’s owner is also paying 15 pounds to each woman who wants to donate more breast milk.
According to the Daily Mail, “A costumed Baby Gaga waitress serves the ice cream in a martini glass filled with the breast milk ice cream mix. Liquid nitrogen is then poured into the glass through a syringe and it is served with a rusk. It can be served with whisky or another cocktail on request.”
The San Francisco Chronicles also reports that, last year, a chef from Klee Brasserie in New York City created cheese from his wife’s breast milk…but it was removed from the menu at the request of the health department.
