Got blue milk? The delicious Star Wars drink also known as Bantha milk is found across various planets set in a galaxy far, far away, and now you can make your very own version via ingredients easily found in a grocery store.

Produced from the female Bantha's mammary glands (which, I guess, may be the closest thing to a cow they have over there), blue milk was known to be a refreshing liquid which was used, just like cow's milk here on Earth, to make yogurt, ice cream, and cheese — all a very good source of calcium, folks. Got to keep that osteoporosis away.

Blue milk made its debut in Star Wars: A New Hope in an early scene in which we see Aunt Beru pour some blue milk for Uncle Owen before Luke pours himself a glass in what looks to be Tatooine's very own version of Tupperware.



In our latest SYFY Happy Hour video, below, Tim Monaghan has now left his duties as SYFY WIRE's ambassador to Romulus to serve the Rebel Alliance and share an Earth recipe approximating Star Wars' blue milk.

But beware! This one will turn out to be a tad stronger than the real deal and worthy to be served in Mos Eisley's cantina. Trust us when we're telling you this version of the drink will be way cooler to serve to your guests during the coming holidays (or any day, really) than just old-fashioned eggnog.

Just make sure everyone drinks responsibly and don't let anyone drink and drive the landspeeder.
