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

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.
