Sheep's milk

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Ummm :D does anyone know where I can get this from?

I'm not intolerant to cows milk but I want something easier to digest with more fat and nut milks don't really have the nutrients I'm looking for and I want to steer clear of soy.

Apparently it has quite a sweet buttery flavour.

    Shut it, you're deviating from the sheepness! :D

    But if you're curious:

    Nut Milk
    1 cup Nuts
    2 cups Water
    1 Banana
    1/2 tablespoon raw honey

    Liquify in blender

    ;)

    I've tried sheep's milk, but I actually prefer the flavour of goat's milk - which you can get at most medium-sized supermarkets, next to the regular milk.

    I've found sheep's milk in the occasional branch of M&S - apparently they stock one in Fortnum and Mason (according to my ex-girlfriend).

    I really like goat's milk, but I wanted to give sheep's milk a go because it has a higher fat content, better amino acid profile and relatively more minerals than cow's or goat's.

    Wouldn't have thought M&S would be the place, but I'll check it out this weekend. Thanks!

    Have you considered the milk of the water buffalo?
    There's about double the fat content of cow's milk or goat's milk and double the calcium too...

    Doesn't sound like it's readily available in the UK..? Is it?

    You'd be surprised at the things you can get mail-order these days.

    Vicodin, Thai women, buffalo milk...

    Sorry, but... :lol: That cracked me up.

    I was interested in drinking sheep's milk a few years ago and couldn't find it anywhere. I turned to Rice Milk and Goat's milk as my alternatives (I'm very turned off by everything I've read about cow's milk). I guess if you want higher fat content then those suggestions don't fit the bill. I have only ever seen sheep's milk at farmer's markets since then, and a google search didn't turn anything up. I'm gobsmacked Tesco don't stock it, must be the only thing they don't.

    Well, the fat content isn't off massive importance, but it helps! I wanted to try coconut milk but I would have thought the taste wouldn't go right with a lot of the things I wanted to eat.

    I think I tried Goats milk once but it smells sooo bad.
