"Most delightful smoothie I've ever had." 

Hilary Duff, actress, mother, singer and all around Cool Gal, has revealed she's been chowing down the remnants of her recent placenta.


Like, we love you HD... but we have to admit to some heebie jeebies.

The star, who welcomed daughter Banks with Matthew Koma last week, not only revealed she had consumed the placenta but that she enjoyed the "delightful" concoction in smoothie format.

"I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was, like, 10 years old. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious," she explained to Dr. Berlin's Informed Pregnancy podcast.

"It was good. I was a little wigged out at first, to be honest." 

"I've heard placenta burps are not ideal," she replied when asked why she didn't try the capsules.

"They hand her to me and I'm looking at her.. and she reaches up both of her arms and curls into me," she told the podcast of her first moments with Banks.

"It was the most, I couldn't believe how strong she was, but it was so clearly, like, a hug. It was amazing. It makes me want to cry. It made me feel like she was, 'Good team, Mom.'"

The Younger star announced the arrival last week in a beautiful Instagram post:

"Banks Violet Bair. This little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic," she wrote.

Congrats again Hilary and Matthew!
