Milk[until 1.13] (milk bucket[upcoming 1.13]) is an item obtained from cows and/or mooshrooms.


Cows and mooshrooms[edit]

Milk can be obtained from cows and mooshrooms by pressing use while looking at them with an empty bucket.


Holding use with a bucket of milk will start the drinking sound and animation. When consumed it will immediately remove any status effects from the player.

The drinking animation isn't shown unless in first-person camera mode.
