South American Telmatobius Frog Smoothie
In some South American countries like Peru people may take endangered Telmatobius frogs, skin and cut them, then throw them into a blender to make a frog smoothie.
To complete the dish a few other ingredients are added to the blender:
- three ladles of hot white bean broth
- two generous spoonfuls of honey
- raw aloe vera plant
- several tablespoons of maca
- 1 dead, skinned, endangered Telmatobius frog
The above recipe makes about 200ml of smoothie.
Here is a video showcasing of the process of making a frog smoothie.
Some believe this helps with fatigue, anemia, bronchitis, or stress. These uses have not been approved by the FDA.
