camel milk

by borom ndar


Have you ever tasted the traditional staple diet of the bedouins, camel milk? It is full of proteins, vitamins and carbohydrates to keep your engine going in the desert. In a more urban setting: we have always had camel milk on our menu, although so far we have actually never tried camel milk in a coffee. This stuff is a rich source of proteins with potential antimicrobial and protective activities, and since it has more fat and protein than cow’s milk, it should, at least in theory, make a great froth.

Usually the taste of camel milk is slightly sweet and creamy and sometimes you can almost taste the camel’s diet in the milk. Last time we detected hints of acacia in it, or was it just our imagination? Whatever the case, try it out at least once, it’s a very refreshing drink, served ice cold!
