Stay Crazy Peru

Entire frogs are the main ingredient in a juice blend some people in Peru and Bolivia believe can cure asthma, bronchitis, sluggishness and a low sex drive. To make the mix at her food stand in Peru's capital, vendor Maria Elena Cruz grabs a frog from a small aquarium, and whacks its head on the countertop until it's dead.
 
Then she peels off its skin and drops the frog into a blender with carrots, the Peruvian maca root and honey.
 
The juice comes out light green in color. Cruz serves it in glasses to her customers.

mmmm frog smoothie. Imagine drinking it AFTER watching her make it. Bashing the frog, skinning it, and of course the blending process. The honey is a nice touch. GAH!
