Guess Whose Placenta Is in These Delicious-Looking Smoothies?

Former 'America's Next Top Model' contestant Lisa D'Amato slurped down her placenta -- and shared it with friends

You know what this milkshake needs? A dash of placenta.

Former America's Next Top Model contestant Lisa D'Amato recently gave birth to a baby boy named Daxel Vaughn. Rather than just chuck the placenta after birth, she decided to blend it up…and then have a mini placenta smoothie party.

According to E! Online, she shared online that she'd prepared “his-and-hers” smoothies to share with her husband. Then a few days later, she Instagrammed pics of friends, including fellow ANTM runner-up Joanie Dodds, enjoying a tall refreshing glass of afterbirth. Which has us wondering…exactly how many smoothies can you make from a placenta?

Actually, eating one’s placenta, called placentophagy, has been around for a while and is often recommended by midwives. The placenta, which nourishes the baby in utero, is full of nutrients and thought to lower the risk of postpartum depression when ingested. If popping your afterbirth in the blender and then OMG DRINKING IT is too much for you, placenta in pill form is available for human organ eating-averse.
