Camel Milk In Your Coffee Anyone?

We couldn't believe our ears when we first heard about this trend for camel milk, a slighty nutty, smoky, savoury milk that is currently being served in some London coffee shops right now. Pop into the coffee chain Taylor Street Baristas for your morning expresso tomorrrow and who knows, you could be tempted into leaving with a Camel lattee, Camelcino or Flat Camel instead. 

Whether you take it with one hump or two is down to you of course. Sorry, we couldn't resist.

Camel's milk is the brainchild of food journalist Richard Ford who's raising funds and awareness for agricultural development charity Farm Africa. Support his cause and donate here.

Apparently camel's milk is a 'thing' across the Middle East, especially the United Arab Emirates where this first batch has been imported from. But while nutriitonists say it is rich in iron, with half the fat and super-high in Vitamin C bla, bla, bla, we can't see this totally replacing your morning caffeine fix.

Cows everywhere - you can rest easy.
