I've thought about making breastmilk yogurt seriously enough to look up the recipe online. It seems pretty easy. I'm exasperated with the impossibility of finding organic full fat yogurt without sugar and a whole buncha other crap in it. (For those wondering, the yogurt would be for the baby. I've tasted my own breastmilk so I'm not squicked out by it...but it's hard work to pump. Lots easier to buy MY food at the grocery store!)

You can also make ice cream by mixing the ingredients well, putting them in a sheet pan in the freezer, and after it is frozen, mostly, you take a hand blender to it or whip it in the mixer, then re-freeze. You have to do it a few times to get the right texture but it turns out quite edible. Our ice cream maker broke one year at the height of plum season and we really wanted plum ice cream, we just did it that way and it worked well!

You can also try Freecycle, your local thrift store, and yard sales. It shouldn't be more than $10 if you get it at a yard sale or thrift store.

Doesn't Trader Joe's also send organic whole milk yogurt without sugar?

I thought there was one more, too, that you can get in the regular grocery store, but I'm blanking on the name.

Yes, I'm thinking of TJ's Greek gods yogurt.

Why did I write send? I meant have.

That's what I get for typing while watching NCIS. [Blushing]

When PETA compared chicken-raising methods to the Holocaust, I lost any remaining respect for them or interest in what they might have to say. It's pretty much on the level of monkeys throwing poo, now.

I think UN health standards recommends breast feeding until age 2?...

Also, not sure about diseases passing from mother to child (or other recipient) through nursing. On one hand, the cross-species thing sounds weird; on the other, it's a kind of protection.

No to Nancy's yogurt--at least not in our regular grocery stores. And the nearest TJs is...pretty far. I'm going to try the farmer's market tomorrow...I know there's a lady who has yogurt, but she's often sold out by the time I get there.

I'm also going to try our local health food store. Or I may give up and just do YoBaby.

iirc, the WHO recommends breastfeeding until at least age 2. I fully intend to continue until at least then.

Stonyfield Farms does make a plain whole milk yogurt, not sure if it has sugar though.

One I did find in our local store and was able to read the ingredients on was Brown Cow. You might check for that one.

I'm sure there's another one but I can't remember the name...

If you really can't find it in-store, here is a site that will deliver. They have Strauss plain organic whole milk yogurt, just cultured milk. Delivery is $25 + $1.25/lb., though, and if you want Saturday delivery it's an extra $10. So that would be a last resort (although you could stock up since yogurt keeps unopened for about forever in the fridge...)

Yogurt is ridiculously easy to make. Mine has tended to turn out a little runnier than comercial yogurt, but I think a lot of commercial brands use geletin to make it firmer.

To go back to the original topic, I just read Ben and Jerry's response to the suggestion and loved it:

quote:
Ben & Jerry's spokeswoman Liz Brenna says that while the company applauds PETA's novel approach to bring attention to this issue, the company believes a human mother's milk is best used for her child.

A rather gracious way of saying "Kindly stop trying to use our reputation as a sounding board for your nonsense."

Liz- right, WHO, not UN. Mind-muddle. Thanks.

I got some at the farmer's market today...not certified organic, but they use organic practices. So thanks everyone, and yay!

I now have a recurring mental image of women hooked up to milking machines and being fed chocolate.

If I told most of my friends about that, I'm guessing at least 30% of them would mistake the human dairy's offer of payment as the entrance fee. [Smile] Especially if they're being force-fed Godiva.

I have that image too -- sometimes when I open my eyes it's true. I hate pumping, but I do love chocolate. :=)

Heck, the chocolate would BE the payment.

"And all I have to do is pump milk? Really? Pass the ganache."
