If you have been to Galaxy’s Edge or not, you are most likely aware of the famous Blue Milk. A rich blue-colored milk produced by female banthas. Most notably available on the Outer Rim planets, like Tatooine, Lothal, and Lah’mu. This nutritious drink can also be found in select spots on Batuu.
“Bantha Milk” was first seen in the 1977 film, Star Wars: A New Hope, where Luke Skywalker takes a big sip of the creamy drink. Since then, fans of the Star Wars franchise have craved getting a cup of Blue Milk themselves. In 2019, that became possible when Disney Parks opened Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Since then, the popularity of Blue Milk has continued to increase as fans love the coconut flavored refreshment. The Milk Stand serves Blue Milk in its classic form, as well as a cooler with the addition of Bacardi Rum.
While it might be difficult finding a bantha on Earth, you can still make a similar drink at home with just a few simple ingredients. For Blue Milk, you will need pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, coconut milk, rice milk, sweetened coconut cream, and food coloring. In a blender, add all of the drink ingredients and blend well before adding any color.
After everything is smooth, add white food color (this may be hard to find, here’s a set on Amazon to make Blue at home!) and a few drops of blue food color. Slowly add more blue or white food color until you get the classic light blue color. Add in some ice and blend before serving!
*To create the Blue Milk Cooler found at the Milk Stand, blend in a few ounces of Bacardi Rum before adding ice to the blender.
