The Latest and Greatest Smoothie Creation

Published 03/25/2012

It’s smoothie time!  For one reason or another we got away from blending them up for a while, but now we’re back at it with a delicious new recipe.  I know when you read one of the ingredients you may be grossed out but TRUST me it tastes sooooo good!  Add these ingredients in this order for smooth mixing:

  • 4 raw egg yolks (make sure they are from the farm or organic)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (I found it easier to split up the can all at once and put the portions in smaller containers)
  • 1 cup frozen organic berries (we’ve used strawberries and blueberries so far)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • About 4-6 ice cubes
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder

This makes 2 servings.  Each contains about 388 calories, 27g carbs, 20g fat and 29g protein.  Yours may be a little different based on the kind of protein powder you use.  We used 365 organic whey protein from Whole Foods.

This delicious smoothie is packed with vitamins b-6, b-12, A, C and D, as well as choline, omega 3’s, iron, phosphorus, selenium, magnesium, lauric acid, potassium, fiber, and amino acids! I hope that you enjoy it!

Note: There is information out there that suggests eating whole eggs raw could lead to biotin deficiency.  So that’s why we chose to use just the yolks to the smoothie and will be using the whites later…We’ll be posting egg white recipes soon!
