Today, I ate some amazing homemade brownies that my best friend's wife made for us. She waited till I'd shoved a third one into my mouth before she mentioned she made them with breast milk. Knowing her, I don't even doubt it was true. FML

When I started reading this, I was expecting pot brownies not boob brownies.

But I'm not even related to these cows! *spits out milk*

Show it anyway

Eh, while I wouldn't voluntarily eat a brownie made with breast milk, I don't think I'd throw up. It's cooked, and I wouldn't doubt it's cleaner than the original milk found in stores before it's pasteurized.

I understand what you mean, but the fact that she's not even blood related makes it kind of more disgusting. I don't know if it would make it any better if she was your mom or something, but it seems even more strange because of her role

But I'm not even related to these cows! *spits out milk*

Breast Spanish dessert?-- Chest Leches!

I dont think its the worst thing in the world. I mean, its extremely healthy. but I get how somebody elses body fluids could gross you out.

When you think about it tho, having the breast milk of another species is actually weirder then having a human mother's breast milk.

It's times like these where you need to stay abreast of the situation.

Did you ask for a glass of milk to wash down the brownies?!

Idk why but body builders crave the stuff, they pay woman for their breast milk because it has the perfect amount of vitamins and protein and stuff

Breast milk is really sweet and a whole lot better then anything you buy in a store. Although, I could see being weirded out because you never know what could be in her milk. I'm not sure what can be passed through breast milk, but I know it has to be screened in order to be used in a milk bank. So that would bother me-_-

#95 has a point. Besides the obvious ick factor, I'd be concerned about what was passed through the milk, too. Any illnesses or medications the woman may have been taking could have been passed along to OP. If she's producing milk, I assume she's recently had a baby, and I'd hope she's being healthy for the baby's sake, but you never know! I don't see the problem in making the brownies that way (to each their own), but she definitely should have given everyone a heads up before they were consumed.

You say you dont know why but then you explain why bodybuilders crave ot

I don't see a problem at all you wouldnt tell some one that you had put cows milk in the brownies and breast milk is a hell of a lot healthier I dont see why everyone get so repulsed by breast milk its natural has all the nutrients you need if you drink cows milk that's just breast milk perfectly designed for cattle

Sure, breast milk surely is more nutritious than milk from a cow. I also think it is highly unlikely that this way any diseases will be passed. But that is completely not the point. The point is that this woman made brownies with an ingredient she knew her guests will find... unpleasant. It simply does not matter how harmless said incredient actually is, she used it with the only purpose to disgust people and that is what matters here.

Well she should've mentioned it as she must know that it could upset people. Why on earth do you think she used it solely to disgust OP though? Maybe they ran out of milk or they just usually use it?

I would think that if she were blood related it would be more disgusting and weirder

I'm not sure why people are grossed out drinking human breast milk that was made for humans but we aren't freaked out drinking cow breast milk

In fairness cow breast milk is screened and pasteurised and everything so it's more reliable.

Some people would consider that a plus

It's not like OP tasted it (obviously not after his third) and breast milk is so nutritious, hence why babies survive on milk and only milk for their first six months of life.

@67 if cow milk is the reason we get acne, explain how someone who was allergic to it as a baby and never liked it as a child has acne.

bfsd42 20

He is actually partly right. Milk can be a cause of acne according to studies, but not in all people. But even though he was kinda right, he's still an idiot and won't be missed.

Well if they were amazing, why are you complaining?!

Maybe the breast milk was why it was so amazing

As long as the brownies taste good, it shouldn't really matter. :)

Breast milk isn't bad for you, it's safe for adults to drink, but not exactly suggested. The thought of it may be gross, but if they were good and you're not sick, there is no harm. It was just a joke, and it's not like you're going to die from it.

We shouldn't even BE drinking milk after we don't need it, especially from other mammals. You don't see cows drinking goat milk do ya?

You know that milk is cow milk? People also consume goat milk. Do you see anyone freaking out about it, besides you? And if there's one thing a human could solely survive off of, it would be human breast milk.


Although most mammals (and humans) are not adapted to digest milk properly after childhood, certain populations (northern european) are adapted to be able to digest milk properly throughout their adult life. Thus, it would not be at all incorrect to say those populations have, in fact, evolved to drink milk from other mammals, and it is not at all abnormal.

I'm 27 and go through a gallon every few days. Love it. ... Cow milk. Just felt that I needed to clarify. :x

If you don't think about it, there really isn't a problem.

Even if you do think about it, there really isn't a problem, either!

There is no way that was a suggested substitution in the recipe, sorry to hear that, OP
