An ice cream parlor in London is working on a new icy concoction for the public.
Ice cream made from breast milk called “Baby Gaga” was available for purchase last Friday at the Icreamists restaurant in London’s Covent Garden, Reuters reports.
Founder of the restaurant Matt O’Conner said that the product is “miracle of motherhood” and costs $23 a serving.
“Some people will hear about it and go, ‘yuck’ but actually it’s pure, organic, free-range and totally natural,” he said. “I had a Baby Gaga just this morning and I feel great.”
The milk for the ice cream was provided by mothers who responded to an online advertisement. 35 year-old Victoria Hiley of London was among the 15 women who donated their breast milk to the restaurant.
“What could be more natural than fresh, free-range mother’s milk in an ice cream?” Hiley said in a statement. “And for me it’s a recession beater too — what’s the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash.”
“Baby Gaga” ice cream is a churned mixture of Madagascan vanilla pods with breast milk and lemon zest. O’Conner added that is just one among many new flavors being added to his shop.
