Some days my kids do not want to eat their breakfast. I do believe that breakfast is the most important meal, especially for kids. During the school year, they need nutrition to make it through their busy mornings.
When the kids get picky, I get sneaky. “Hey kids, do you want some ice-cream for breakfast?” YES!!! Sneaky breakfast smoothie it is! Here’s how I make this work.

The addition of liver is intriguing and not something I’ve thought of adding to smoothies, though I do raw eggs, spinach, and flax seed. My freezer has more liver than I know what to do with! Can you tell more about how you do the cubed liver? Do you puree it while it’s frozen? Do you add it to the smoothie raw, or how does that work?? Thanks!
I thaw it, puree it, and freeze it in ice cube trays. Then I add a frozen cube to my smoothies.
Beef livers or chicken?
I actually typically use lamb liver…least livery taste. Otherwise I use chicken livers.
Could you expand on the liver a bit more? What kind and how do you prepare it? Is it cooked? The idea interests me if I could get away with it.
Liver is one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. I buy organic grass-fed liver. Usually lamb liver because it has the least “livery” flavor. I puree it and freeze it in ice-cube trays. Then I have liver cubes to add to food. I highly recommend this book if you want to know more about traditional, nutrient dense foods and cooking methods —-> https://amzn.to/13lkdTI
So you dont precook the liver before blending and freezing? you can eat it raw?
If you are concerned about parasites in raw liver, freeze it for 3 weeks and then eat it. Otherwise, I eat it raw
How do you make the liver puree?
I grew up in northern Greenland, and occasionally ate raw seal liver (it’s much better than it sounds, I love it – best liver there is), but I don’t like the other livers, so your method would be good to sneak it in.
I love your blog and check it daily, keep up the good work!
Thought I’d leave a link for my liver cubes – it’s what Kate is talking about: https://divinehealthfromtheinsideout.com/2011/12/how-to-sneak-more-liver-into-your-diet/
