After the kids were off to school today, I made myself a healthy smoothie. I sat down in front of the TV while reading some blogs on my lap top. (I like to multi task.) I started to watch Live with Regis and Kelly. As I was sipping my smoothie, I heard Kelly say something about a chef that was using breast milk for his recipes. What? In a restaurant? YUCK! I stopped reading to hear more about this. I also stopped drinking my smoothie.
It seems a chef in Switzerland has been using breast milk in his creations. He doesn’t use it straight up though. He mixes it with whipped cream to thicken up the consistency. He sounds like a real boob, doesn’t he? Oh, excuse the pun. I guess he has advertised that he will pay 10 euros per litre of milk to all breast feeding moms. Ladies, get your pumps ready. There is a real money making opportunity here.
It looks like the authorities are not too happy about this. For more information on the story, click here. So what do you think? Would you eat one of his breast milk meals? Personally I find it repulsive but to each his own. I just don’t want to see him in the next “got milk” commercial with his milk mustache and all. So now let’s get back to our smoothie recipe.
I don’t like to eat early in the morning but I know how important breakfast is. So I made this smoothie with wholesome, filling ingredients. I used a frozen banana but if you didn’t plan ahead, you can use a non frozen one. Just add an extra ice cube or two if you like it thick. And feel free to substitute breast milk if that’s your thing.
