Has anyone tried melting butter into milk?

I tried this today because normally I blend butter into tea, but I'm getting sick of the tea and I'm eliminating most unnecessary plant material out of my diet. I melted 100g of butter into 1 liter of milk then poured it back into the bottle and shook it and drank it. Yum. And a swell 1377 kcal, 119g of fat, 33g of protein, 47g of CHO. I used pastured milk and pastured butter and dropped my D3 in there as well.

Have any of you done anything like this before? Tastes great.

@EJE Sorry to answer so late, I forgot to come back to this question. At the time, all chowders included onion and white potato. You added niblet corn for corn chowder and clams for clam chowder.

That's really interesting Nance. Would anything else be put into the broth?

I grew up in New England and we called this "chowder broth."

I'm definitely already thin, but doing this did make me loose that last bit of tube around the lower ab.

Hi Jack, I've been using the cream method you described. Like it a lot. I've been mixing 5-6 raw egg yolks in with the cream and bit of milk to thin out the cream and drinking it as my first meal.

Yeah, but are you losing weight? I have 40 pounds to lose, and I'm already going the opposite direction after a great first week. 2 pounds up so far this week NOT GOOD.

Add a couple eggs (I usually do a omelet w/ 2 slices a cheddar), drink the milk and butter, eat a piece of fruit or two (I usually press 2-3 oranges into juice w/ pulp), see how you feel. I've done it for an entire week and felt wonderful. Sodium will be low if you use unsalted butter, add a teaspoon to a bottle of water. Still might be a little low even if you use salted and are active.

Sounds awesome. In winter I melt 100% cacao, butter, cream and coconut milk on the hob and drink that for breakfast. I might add some coconut oil if I feel I need it. The coconut milk gives it a slight sweetness, the chocolate makes it nice and 'strong' and the saltiness of the butter (I only use salted butter) rounds it off nicely. I bet it would be even nice with creamed coconut...

It depends mostly on what I am eating. If I go low carb I have a need for more fat so I eat butter alone or mix it up with milk. My favorite is to mix up some instant coffee in milk with butter or whole cream.

I heat everything up on number 2 out of 9 on the stove nob. So it's a little warm, a hair over room temp. It's good. Interestingly I've been around a lot of Haitian women and African women and I've never seen one drink cold milk.

I've thought about it, but never tried it. Straight milk doesn't have enough fat for me (even Jersey), but heavy cream goes bad too fast and I can't always get half 'n half. How did you keep the milk from making the butter hard before it was all blended in?

I have a device that reincoperates butter into milk to make whipping cream. My mother bought it in the 70's

Just add pepper and oysters and you have oyster stew!

@Jason. I do the same. Organic double cream 100ml(50g fat) Goat butter 100g (50g fat) 200ml coconut milk. Warm gently on the hob (throw out your microwave :]) stir in teaspoon ground flax/sunflower seed. Pour the warm solution into a blender add two raw eggs and give it a 5second zap. Great way to start and end the day.

I melt butter into cream in the microwave sometimes and drink that when breakfast doesn't fully satisfy. Usually it's butter, cream, and espresso coffee but I've tried not drinking coffee for the last week so it's just butter and cream now. If I drink it at night, I also toss in a couple of small slabs of 85% chocolate.

Damn, that's almost my 100% daily intake right there in one bottle. I wonder what would happen if I did that for breakfast and ate nothing else O_o

seems easier to just pour cream into the milk. (like half and half). that's almost the same thing (pretty close anyway, since cream is virtually liquid butter). i suppose it might taste different with the butter, if that's what you're after. interesting idea. wouldn't it make the milk warm though?
