'Serve donkey milk with bit of cocoa and honey...and it's great for your skin'

In the past, some sources have claimed that Cleopatra took baths using donkey milk to keep her skin soft and beautiful.

About seven years ago, a South African company took this piece of history to the test and started milking donkeys to create skin care products.

Jessie Christellis is the owner of South Africa's only Donkey Dairy Farm which produces skin care products using donkeys' milk as the main ingredient.

It makes skin products like donkey milk soap, hand cream, face cream for night and day use.

An amazing thing about the donkey milk and the reason we use it is that it is jam-packed with really incredible ingredients for the skin and you don't need to put in anything weird and funny.

For those looking to drink donkey milk Christellis says it is best served chilled with a bit of cocoa and honey. In case you were wondering, it tastes more like coconut milk, says Christellis.

It is the closest milk to mother's milk, a great substitute for formula.

A lot of people say it is a lot more palatable than goat milk.
