Blue milk,[6] also known as Bantha milk,[7] was a rich blue-colored milk produced by female banthas. Sentients drank it, and also used it in ice cream, butter and yogurt.[8] It was notably available on Outer Rim planets such as Tatooine[4] Lothal,[3] and Lah'mu.[2] During a lightsaber training session, the young Ezra Bridger had to protect himself as the astromech droid Chopper kept lobbing jugs of blue milk at him.[6] Blue milk was also a fundamental ingredient in blue milk custard.[8]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

An advertisement for blue milk. The Aurebesh text translates as "Blue milk" : "At markets everywhere".

Blue milk first appeared in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the first installment in the original trilogy of Star Wars.[4] Initially, there was a scene in which Beru Lars, played by Shelagh Fraser, was seen pouring blue milk into a jug in her kitchen. That footage, however, was left on the cutting room's floor.[9]

Mark Hamill stated the blue milk was "life-long milk" with "additives – they put blue food colouring in it – and it was really ghastly. Oily and sweet and euch! Triggered your gag reflex. But I said, 'Look – if they gave me blue milk, you bet I'm going to drink it on camera, because what other chance am I going to get?' So there's an indication that I'm an underrated actor – I gulped it and acted like I liked it without vomiting."[10]

The real world Milk Stand found at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge serves "blue milk," which is actually a frozen plant-based blend of coconut and rice milks.
