This is a different type of smoothie. I don’t think you would think about this one on your own. One of the ingredients will surprise you – just wait until you get to the end of the ingredient list.
I have included an unusual spice. Cardamom is often associated with Indian dishes. It has a very powerful flavor and has been described to elevate sweet and savory dishes. It has minty, floral, and slightly bitter tastes all rolled up into one.
The big surprise is the addition of one frozen raw chicken liver. These livers are from pastured chickens. They are washed and individually frozen in silicone ice-cube trays. Freezing for 14 days essentially kills potential residual pathogens. Don’t fret. You won’t taste it, but you will be adding one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet to your smoothie.
Rejoice. This is a very healthy drink that serves 2.
