The shipment came today! From http://www.camelmilkassociation.org/, I paid the $25 membership fee and ordered 9 pints of frozen camel’s milk. I thawed the first bottle today, and this evening, Jackson and Sophie each had their first taste. For Jackson, I put the milk into the oral syringe (my best friend), and squirted away. He liked it, and kept opening willingly until he drank about 2 ounces in all. I may try it in his sippy cup tomorrow.
When I asked Sophie if she wanted some camel’s milk, she said, “sure, but can I have some horsie milk too?” For those of you who don’t know (almost 5 year old) Sophie, she is in love with horses. Sophie liked the milk, especially since I warmed it and added some chocolate syrup. She said it tasted like hot chocolate.
So far, so good with the camel’s milk. Crossing my fingers I see some gains from this expensive beverage. The milk itself is actually reasonably priced at $10 a pint…it’s the $40 shipping that gets ya. Camel’s milk is one intervention on my list of things to try, so here it goes. I’ll keep you posted….
