Ice cream parlors aren’t exactly big business in these bleak winter months, but you would never guess it at Icecreamists. The London scooperie can hardly move enough product to keep up with the demand. What is it that has so many craving the summertime treat?
Breast milk. Icecreamists is on the pioneering forefront of breast milk ice cream. Their aptly named Baby Gaga was the brainchild of the store’s owner, but the breastchild of 35 year old Victoria Hiley, who donated 30 fluid ounces of her own boob juice after seeing an advertisement online to get the recipe rolling. Those 30 ounces were enough to make 50 scoops of the creamy treat.
The recipe blends breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest, which is then freshly churned into ice cream.
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.
Mother-of-one Victoria said: ‘I saw the advert offering to pay women to donate breast milk on a forum and it made me laugh. ‘There were so many comments and people were having a debate on whether it could be genuine. So I thought I’d find out.’
Another 13 women have volunteered to donate their breast milk.
Icecreamists pays £15 for a ten ounce breast milk donation, so ladies, get pumping. There’s gold in those lady lumps!
Would you ever eat breast milk ice cream?
***UPDATE! And just like that, it’s gone. British health officials have apparently seized the busty treat, as breast milk can spread diseases like hepatitis.
