    Raw liver in a smoothie

    Shop Now
    Folks, does raw liver mixed in with a smoothie leave any bits and pieces or is it really smooth? I am recovering after dental surgery and miss protein big time. Egg whites make my smoothies too runny, so I was wondering if I can throw in a chunk of chicken or beef liver to thicken it up? I tried nuts and it did not go well (many tiny bits).

    That sounds awful.

    Can you just use protein powder until you recover?

    Nope, I don't want any artificial stuff and sweeteners that come with protein powder, and raw liver tastes way better than pure whey isolate.

    For the love of all that is holy do NOT do try it. I wasted a perfectly good beef liver by trying to blend it after a workout. It was...awful. The taste and the texture. Make a pate dude

    Ingredients on my partner's container (I don't use it): Whey protein isolate (filtered milk protein), bromelain (an extract from pineapples).

    That's it - nothing else.

    Just noted that you are in Calgary... so, you can buy it at the superstore and it has a green lid and it is President's Choice brand and it says 100% whey protein isolate on the label.

    I don't really want to buy a tub of whey... sorry I left it all behind and I hope for good!

    Actually, I am thinking I will blend in a couple of cans of tuna instead. It should be easier and tasty. I'd blend sockeye, if I have the calorie allocation, I will see what I have by the time supper rolls around.

    I really wish I had oysters, but all the canned oysters have some crap added to them! So I never buy them.

    How about nut butter instead of straight up nuts? No bits.
