I think this time I'm going to need to get back on my feet quicker!
We blend the frozen berries and banana first, add in the juice and cubes and blend, then blend in the placenta at the end. Squirt in some honey if you like and whiz the blender one last time.
(it was my goal to consume the whole placenta and that was accomplished over two days with around 4 blenders full of smoothie)
As for our recipe, I had my sweet,sweet, vegan friend prep mine for me.JUST LOVE HER!!!!!It was all new to us, and she was SO great!She diced up the placent and put it into ice cube trays-SO SMART!So we used a cube or 2 per blender-full.Not much, and it lasted me a week or so?Anyway, then we just put in a whole bannana and the most strawberries we could fit,and blended!I don't think we even added water or milk or anything else!I really was sad when I ran out.And I am SO exited to have such an amazing resource again!!!!!By the way-we are due at the same time!
3/4 cup milk (dairy or non)
1 tablespoon nut butter (peanut is best, but almond is good, too)
1 heaping teaspoon raw honey
1 smallish banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 heaping teaspoon spirulina powder (optional)
The spirulina turns the smoothie black because of the blueberries, so if color bothers you, you might want to drink it out of a covered travel cup, lol. The nut butter adds a thick texture that, I believe, will completely cover the taste and texture of the placenta. I'm very excited to try this. Yum! :
