Kitchenista: Breastmilk Smoothie

By Madeline Holler |

While writing about a U.K. breastfeeding support group, whose soon-t0-be-released calendar features a dozen moms in varying states of breastfeeding undress, a little video caught my attention. The Rubgy Breastfeeding Cafe has posted a recipe and tutorial on how to make a breastmilk smoothie.

What they don’t mention in the 53-second clip, however, is why? Why make a breastmilk smoothie? And, perhaps more important? Intriguing? Urgent? Who is this smoothie for? Because they don’t appear to be serving it in a sippy cup.

If breastmilk drink concoctions aren’t your thing, my recommendation is to pack your own beverages before meeting up with the Cafe — nothanksI’mgood.

For everyone else, bottoms up!

    I had too much breastmilk stored in my freezer (it was going bad–had been in too long) and tried to make Finn eat a breastmilk popsicle. Didn’t work, but maybe I should have mixed it up with blueberries and fancied it up! Or maybe not…

    I wonder if you churned it, could you get breastmilk butter?

    We made this after I had gone away for the night and expressed some breastmilk. I thought what a shame to waste it! The smoothie was for my daughter who was 18 months at the time (worth mentioning that honey may not be safe for under 1′s). However we put it in a nice glass to show it off really – you wouldn’t drink a cocktail out of a bucket would you? (well, depends how many you’ve already had!) Anyway I am waffling – the point is that I deliberatley didn’t show who was going to drink the smoothie, mainly to get people talking about it. Especially after I found out that breastmilk kills cancer cells….
