Blue milk,[13] also known as Bantha milk,[14] was a rich blue-colored milk produced by female banthas. Sentients drank it,[12] and also used it in bantha butter,[7] blue bantha buttermilk biscuits,[9] blue-milk cheese,[10] blue milk custard, ice cream, and yogurt.[12] It was notably available on Outer Rim planets such as Batuu,[1] Lah'mu,[2] Lothal,[3] and Tatooine.[4] Cid's Parlor on Ord Mantell served a similar beverage that was alcoholic called Dark Blue Milk.[15]

During a lightsaber training session, the young Ezra Bridger had to protect himself as the astromech droid Chopper kept lobbing cartons of blue milk at him.[13] Two establishments in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, served blue milk or blue milk-based concoctions; Milk Stand sold blue milk and an alcoholic Blue Milk Cooler,[11] while Oga's Cantina served the non-alcoholic Blue Bantha.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

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.[16]

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."[17]

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 that the menu describes as having "alluring fruity characteristics." The Disney's Hollywood Studios location additionally serves an alcoholic Blue Milk Cooler.[11] The real-world Oga's Cantina at both parks serves Blue Bantha, a non-alcoholic cocktail with a cookie.[8]

The 2020 non-canon video game expansion The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu includes blue milk as a drink sold to the player's Sims at the Milk Stand vendor in the Black Spire Outpost neighborhood. In the home neighborhood, it can be purchased as a quick meal from refrigerators.[18]
