It’s a given that the ice cream you enjoy from the supermarket or the local parlor is made with cows’ milk. And why wouldn’t it? Cows are one of our most common livestock, their milk is nutritious and a single cow produces around 6 gallons of milk a day. It’s a no-brainer.
Or is it? All mammals produce milk, so why couldn’t one make ice cream out of these other animals’ milk? They do. Travel the world, and you’ll find ice cream that is made using milk from all types of livestock.
Over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to highlight these other-than-cows-milk ice creams. While some of the animals won’t be too surprising, some will come as quite a shock. Look for my first installment next Wednesday, January 25!
