how many grams is a 1/2 a cup of colostrum?
This seems very very expensive to make the icing
The amount of Colostrum required for this recipe is roughly 7 servings, quite a bit yes, but then again this is intended to be an occasional treat.
Made this today, and it turned out great! While not decadently sweet, it is very satisfying. Love that it’s so healthy-no guilt eating it for breakfast or as a bedtime snack.
