Strawberry Surprise Milkshake
You betcha there’s a surprise in this milkshake! If you dare, use your own milk for a shake — we suggest chilling it in advance. Mix 1 cup breast milk, 8 ounces frozen strawberries, 3 ounces orange juice concentrate, 1 cut up frozen banana, and 1 cup pineapple chunks in a blender until smooth. Serve, sip, and see what it’s like to drink human milk. You can also check out this video recipe for Rosie’s Breast Milk Smoothie.

Mommy’s Milk Cheese
When we first told you about Daniel Angerer’s breast milk cheese, the New York City chef and dad was at the forefront of the breast milk cooking craze. He added cheese made from his wife’s breast milk to his menu, stirring up plenty of controversy and curiosity. Try his recipe and read our previous post to learn more about why he chose this possibly-too-close-for-comfort, locavore ingredient.
Breast Milk Chai Latte Cupcakes
With the cupcake craze still going strong it’s no surprise that many brave mommy bakers have dabbled with using their breast milk for quirky cupcake creations. Jasmine Marsh, a birth and postpartum doula, modified a vegan recipe to create her Breast Milk Chai Latte Cupcake recipe, which you can find on her blog Doula Right Thing. We also found a recipe for Vanilla Breast Milk Cupcakes with Strawberry Frosting.
Abi Blake, the self-proclaimed “Nigella Lawson of breast milk cookery” has become a bit of a legend when it comes to cooking with human milk. In defense of her favorite ingredient, she says, “Although the idea of eating something made out of someone else’s breast milk may make some people’s stomachs turn, it is full of vitamins that can never be found in cow’s milk.” Okay. But lasagna, really? Blake sells her comfort food including lasagna, cheesecake, tarts and smoothies at festivals with much fanfare. She hasn’t revealed her personal recipes, but the strategy remains the same — when a recipe calls for milk or cheese, replace it with breast milk or breast milk cheese and wallah you have breast milk lasagna.

Breast Milk Butter
Who knew you could turn your own breast milk into butter? All you have to do is put an ounce or two of breast milk in a sterile jar, screw the lid on tightly and shake, shake, shake until you have butter.
