Breast milk ice cream is back - and its profits will go to a breastfeeding charity

The recipe is also available online so you can make the ice cream at home

The highly controversial breast milk ice cream is back.

In celebration of the forthcoming birth of the Royal baby, a breastfeeding campaigner has collaborated with London-based ice cream makers The Licktators to re-launch the product, which first hit Covent Garden in 2011.

Leeds mum Victoria Hiley said she wanted to remind the Duchess of Cambridge, as well as mothers around the country, of the benefits of breastfeeding, and “how delicious breast milk is, whatever your age”.

Royal Baby Gaga ice cream is made by The Licktators with donated breast milk - screened in line with hospital standards - and blended with Madagascan Vanilla.

 

Hiley was involved in the launch of the highly criticised Baby Gaga breast milk ice cream in 2011 and has teamed up again with ice cream maker Matt O’Connor to create a Royal-themed version of the product.

Hiley said: “There was huge support from breastfeeding women for Baby Gaga ice cream in 2011, yet some politicians still stigmatise women for breastfeeding in public.

“We thought the birth of a Royal baby was a great time to whip up support for mums and say that when it comes to ice cream this summer, breast is best.”

“After all, what else would you give your young prince or princess?”, she added.

The product will be available for sale at selected stores in London this summer and online at thelicktators.com from Saturday, which is the Duchess’ rumoured due date.

The ice cream is available in pink and blue tubs. Profits are to be donated to a breastfeeding charity.
