Dinner with Breastmilk

@DoulaKeva posted these Recipes à la Breastmilk from the web, to Twitter the other day. They're not specific to lactating mothers -- meaning, they are not ones designed to help increase milk supply. They're for everyone! And looks like they've got something for every meal. I have to say most of them sound pretty tasty -- especially the Vanilla Breast Milk Cupcakes with Strawberry Frosting, the fruit delight, macaroni, and well, a lot of them. I also found a recipe from the Flatnipples Blog about her attempt at breast milk ice cream.

I can honestly say I would be willing to eat meals made with breast milk! I am a big green smoothie drinker, and the Public Health Smoothie sounds awesome and healthy. And I also am really interested in the soap, too. Here are the ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup water 
  • 1/4 cup lye (NaOH) 
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil 
  • 1/2 cup cocoa butter 
  • 1 cup breastmilk

I can imagine the wonders this soap would do for my skin.... well, except for the lye, and all, and I'd probably use olive or coconut oil instead of the vegetable oil. But what about you? Would you or have you ever had a dish a La breastmilk?
