"Seriously Han. I'd like a milk."
Luke Skywalker, to Han Solo[5]

Milk was a nutritious liquid produced and secreted by the females of certain species. While milk was typically white,[6] the one produced by bantha cows was blue,[3] and the one produced by Thala-siren sea sows was green.[7] Other species that secreted milk included the whilks,[4] the nerfs,[8] and the falumpasets.[9] Moofs made moof milk, but "moof-milker" was an insult.[10] The term "milk" was also used to describe any similar fluid in plants, such as the juice of a black melon.[11]

Some intelligent species would farm non-sentient creatures to extract their milk and use it as food.[8] When left standing for a while, milk would turn sour.[4] However, to prevent spoilage, it could be stored in cool places, just like meat.[12] Milk was the basis of various preparations that included ice cream, yogurt, and butter.[3] Tooka were known to enjoy milk.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Milk first appeared in the 1977 original trilogy film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, in which blue bantha milk is consumed by the Lars household.[1]

Artificially-created Bantha and Thala-siren milk can be bought and enjoyed by park guests at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, where the drinks are sold as authentic products of the animals from the Star Wars universe.[13]
