Breastmilk Ice-Cream Anybody?

Seriously, why???

A restaurant in London’s Covent Garden is serving a new range of ice cream, made with breast milk.

The dessert, called Baby Gaga, is churned with donations from London mother Victoria Hiley, and served with a rusk and an optional shot of Calpol or Bonjela.

Mrs Hiley, 35, said if adults realised how tasty breast milk was more new mothers would be encouraged to breastfeed.

Each serving of Baby Gaga at Icecreamists costs £14.

Mrs Hiley’s donation was expressed on site and pasteurised before being churned with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest.

Icecreamists founder Matt O’Connor placed an advert appealing for breast milk donations and believes his new recipe will be a success.

What’s the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash?”

“If it’s good enough for our children, it’s good enough for the rest of us,” he said.

I don’t care how good it freaking tastes, I’m gonna pass on this one.

What say you?
