My MW has offered to prepare a smoothie postpartum with my placenta. She said it doesn't really taste like anything...hmmm...could this be true? She insists the iron is very important and I don't really want to spend a lot of money to encapsulate it, so...raw anyone? smoothie anyone?

I have never personally sampled placenta smoothie, but the uc board is full of smilies when refering to the placenta smoothie. I would go over there and ask for advice and taste opinions! good luck with your quest for the yummiest placenta ingestion method!

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :

If the placenta was well rinsed, I could see it not tasting of anything but the other ingredients. And doesn't orange juice help iron absorption anyway?
