Does anyone have a palatable raw liver shake recipe?

I'm trying to get beef liver in because I'm breastfeeding and I prefer natural supplementation. Anyway... I just HATE it cooked and I can only barely get it down raw. Right now I'm putting about 4 oz in the blender with heavy cream and a raw pastured egg yolk.

Any other ideas?

It's really gross in a shake. I'm not gonna lie. I actually stopped drinking these shakes and I just eat it in frozen pill sized pieces and take it back with water or raw milk now. I can now handle fried chicken liver but beef or calf liver, I still can't do.

I don't think raw is safe for chicken liver. Beef safe, chicken unsafe.

I agree - chocolate works, as strange as it may sound. Also, cut up into little chunks, it makes a good texture-replacement for beans in chili, and the flavor of chili tends to be strong enough to override the liver flavor.

OK... a raw liver shake that will kill some of the fermented hay and blood aftertaste I have left in my mouth after gulping it down. hahaha

I took mine straight from the farm during slaughter of a grass fed beef---AMazing taste.

When I try this (haven't yet) eating raw liver I'm going to make it spicy like a bloody mary with tomato paste, worchester, pepper, stuff like that.

Add raw liver and heavy sour cream (2:1 up to 1:1) to a blender and blend. Season with a bunch of chives, chopped onions, salt, pepper, chili. The goal is to keep the chives and onions from getting blended and providing some texture. You might also want to add some minced garlic.

I can't remember where I stole this idea from but I puree a 1/2lb piece of liver, put it in an ice cube tray, freeze it and put a cube or two in whenever I'm making a ground beef/vegetable sort of stir fry. I throw in a couple pieces of cut up bacon as extra flavoring to mask the liver flavor.

I can't believe you prefer it raw to cooked. Impressive!

Just made a raw liver shake that tasted quite good. 1 whole lamb liver, 50g of butter, hot mug of long black espresso coffee: all blended together. Has a smooth yoghurt-like texture & the butter and coffee seem to mellow out the liver flavor

I work out a lot my coach said because of the level of workout I should try eating organ meats I HATE liver so I spent time tying to figure out how to get this in me. I finally found a way to get it in me so it wasn't so bad I pulled out my juicer ran carrots celery and other veggies then put raw liver in a blender with the juice I didn't even need anything else really not bad. I drink it every day

I just came home with a ten dollar bag filled with pasture-raised raw, organic chicken liver. I am surprised that there are shake recipes out there! I was just looking for regular recipes. I'm so stoked. I love making shakes. I cannot wait to try this. I read somewhere that letting the liver soak in milk makes it taste better. I'm thinking of making the shake with organic grass-fed heavy cream or milk, and making it really spicy. I have extra hot cayenne pepper (90,000 units) that I really like. Maybe it will taste good? I love onions, I'm definitely going to add onions, and probably garlic for the health benefits. Hahaha, this is probably going to be impossible to choke down. I've actually never tried liver before. Man, I can't wait for them to thaw. I bought them at a farmers market this afternoon. I'm stoked.

I blend the liver up in a blender and then add it to some ground meat (usually bison). It actually adds a nice flavor without being too overpowering. Adding it to chili sounds interesting. Mmm. Definitely an acquired taste.

I buy Grassfed either from the farmers market or whole foods. I wouldn't trust organic raw liver since it's still often corn fed. I'd maybe eat it cooked but not raw.

Where do you guys get your liver? Chicken or beef? Is it organic or just from the supermarket? (not many organic options around here unfortunately...)
