What to do with old frozen breast milk..."liquid gold":
If the milk is stored properly and is not too old (a good rule of thumb is 6 hours at room temperature, 6 days in the fridge, and 6 months in the freezer, and 12 months in a deep freezer), milk banks for mothers who cannot provide their babies with their own milk are a very worthy first option. If looking for alternative ways to feed extra milk to a growing baby, toddler, or even adults, check out these ideas:
*Make butter! Just put a few ounces of milk in a clean jar and shake vigorously until you have butter.
*Ice cream can be made by simply substituting human milk for cow's milk. A great option for moms on a dairy-free diet who are craving ice cream.
*Freeze it into popsicles or ice cubes for summertime or teething babies.
*Make cheese like the chef who first set off the media firestorm years ago.
*Use it as a creamer for coffees and other drinks.
*Substitute for cow's milk with human milk in baking or cooking recipes.
*Donate it to chemo patients, whose digestion can be aided by breastmilk.
There is a seemingly-endless list of non-food uses for human milk with its anti-fungal properties, from removing makeup to relieving scrapes and burns.
