LCHF Protein Egg Drink

3 whole large eggs (organic is best)
1-2 Tbsp of coconut oil (begin with one, increase to two if you do not feel full the first time you make this)
1 Tbsp of butter
1 cup of chai tea*

the following to taste:
cinnamon
nutmeg
clove
ginger
vanilla extract
artificial sweetener ( I use stevia )

Directions:

Melt the coconut oil and butter in a sauce pan until melted (do not overheat!)
Brew a cup of chai tea.
Add the eggs, spices and sweetener to blender, blend on low. Slowly drizzle in the oil mixture. Slowly add the chai tea. The heat from the oil and tea will “cook” the eggs so that you do not get salmonella. Blend until frothy. If you want this a bit thicker, add 1/4 cup of HWC. If you want even more protein, add a scoop of LC vanilla protein mix.

Note: the HWC and the protein powder will add to the nutritional totals below. I have not included those totals.

Note: I got this recipe from a book years ago and do not remember which one now to give credit.

This is a great drink if you are on the go or just want something to drink instead of cooking. It is not very thick, but it is frothy and tastes pretty good. It keeps me feeling full for about 4-6 hours.

*Sometimes the spices will settle to the bottom and you will need to stir this. If you do not wish to do that, omit the cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger and find a Double Chai tea instead, or use two teabags instead of one reg chai teabag.
