Curious about breast milk ice cream? Here's what you need to make your own!

In 2011, the London ice cream parlor Icecreamists launched their controversial ice cream flavor called “Baby Gaga.” Why did it raise such a fuss? It was made of breast milk. They began with breast milk from one woman, but is now sourced from multiple women.

The ice cream is screened in line with hospital standards, then blended with vanilla and lemon zest.

“The Baby Gaga tastes creamy and rich. No-one’s done anything interesting with ice cream in the last hundred years,” founder Matt O’Connor told The Daily Mail in 2011. “We’ve come up with a method of infusing ice-cream with breast milk. We wanted to completely reinvent it. And by using breast milk we’ve definitely given it a one hundred percent makeover. Its just one of a dozen radical new flavors we’ve invented. We want to change the way people think about ice cream.”
