Yes, you can make ice cream from infant formula and breast milk

Last week, I posted a list of articles about odd ice cream flavors, mostly Lithuanian.  Several readers pointed out that the links all went to the same article (oops, my bad).

They particularly wanted to see the ones about ice cream made from infant formula and breast milk.

Really?  People do this?  Yes, they do.

Especially in the UK.

If you are in the UK, you can buy commercial products, like one “made with love in the Lake District.”

Or you can make your own with breast milk or formula.  A company tried this in 2011, but got into trouble over safety issues.

It’s pretty easy to do this at home.

Have on hand:

  • A banana or other fruit, sliced.
  • 2 ounces of breast milk or formula.
  • A blender.

Freeze the fruit.
