There are varying opinions on whether you can use thrush breastmilk. Some say you can use it as is, but I would not want to take a chance having experienced thrush myself. I think the safe thing to do is to scald the milk. It will kill most of the antibodies, but nutritionally it is fine.

I didn't because we had very persistant thrush for several months and so I just didn't want to take any chances and threw everything out. I didn't have much of a stash, so it didn't break my heart too much. Yeast can't survive temperatures above 125 degrees or so, so you should be fine scalding it. I think Kellymom has several articles giving opinions on what to do with thrush milk.
