    Jane, and any others lactose intolerant, I am allergic to dairy products (except Cheddar cheese - go figure!) and cook only with coconut oil or ghee (drawn butter). The casein is removed from ghee, so it works beautifully for cooking my eggs (and ghee doesn't burn like regular butter) and for using in my coffee instead of cream or putting in smoothies. A good ghee from grass-fed cows, like Purity Farms, is worth its weight in gold to me.

    Works great made with coffee. I only use organic coffee as regular coffee has so many pesticides, etc. used in its growing, and added a little stevia to it. I used a teaspoon of cinnamon and only a pinch of nutmeg - it was really yummy! Oh, and I used a teaspoon of vanilla extract as I really like vanilla. What good would a pinch do? Maybe it was talking about the powder, which I find to be too expensive.

    Hi Gencay!

    We don't promote calorie counting so we don't have those values in our recipes.

    But I give you an indication with the values below ;-)

    1 Tablespoon of coconut oil is around 120 kcal
    1 egg is approx. 150 kcal

    My husband is allergic to all eggs,chicken, duck .Whites and well as the yolks. Would anyone have some breakfast suggestions? I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around this news as to what to make for him.He has 40lbs to loose.
    Thank You,

    My blender and my food processor are both made of plastic, so no boiling water can be used. I DO have a hand egg beater. I'll let you know how it works.
  8. Elena
    They will be cooked in hot boiling water by the time you can drink it! so yes.
  9. sophie
    It tasted really eggy and I couldn't stomach it :( where did I go wrong?

    This is a delicious, quick breakfast! The raw egg needs to be beaten first, then add coconut oil and spices.

    I don't use a blender, so I make this in a low, wide-mouthed jar using an old-fashioned rotary egg beater (works a little better than just a whisk, but that works, too--immersion blender splatters too much for this).

    sophie, I always go for the cocoa powder, and I think the trick is to get a good-quality one like Dagoba if you can (Hershey's or that kind of thing will not dissolve enough and might be why it tastes too eggy).

    Beat the egg, add the cocoa powder, coconut oil or cream, and boiling water, then beat and you also get a lovely foam on the top.

  11. Adrian
    Also, using boiling water and drinking immediately should be just fine for most people who tolerate eggs. I like this way better than Bullet-Proof coffee in the morning! :D
  12. Yvonne
    I, too am allergic to eggs, and in addition, I am allergic to bovine (beef), shellfish (allergy to protein binder of iodine), and porcine (pork) proteins. I am finding that a low carb, essentially vegan diet that is varied--as suggested to avoid immune system reactions--is almost impossible. What I do eat for breakfast is vegan protein powder (low carb) in the mornings with ingredients such as greens, avocado for fat (or coconut oil), and frozen berries with milk alternative such as organic soy milk. While sipping it, I make delicious scrambled eggs for my family :-( When I need to vary my diet, most of the time I just don't eat thinking nothing is better than something that will cause an allergic reaction. Sometimes, I eat something I am allergic to and then deal with the inflammation that results from eating it. I am losing only a half pound per week. Sigh :-/

    I tryed it but it's not good.

    I have a heart condition that does not allow me to properly digest coconut oil. The last time I used it when dieting and exercising I went into cardiac arrest. What alternative oil would you suggest I use as a substitute in the recipes that call for coconut oil?

    Why is bulletproof coffee not in the 2 week challenge? I’m on day 3 and would like to try it but I don’t want to via off the plan

    I have a very hard time tolerating eggs in the morning, which is why i am looking for different breakfasts other than the egg ones that are most recommended. Is this going to be too eggy for me?
  18. Liz
    Guys, this is where you rate the recipe. It’s NOT where you tell us everything you are allergic to. I’m reading this to find out what people thought that actually made it and drank it. I have empathy for you but this isn’t the place. Dietdoctor does a really good job of trying to provide something for just about everyone. I’m sure they don’t have the time to go through each of your comments to find out what you can and can’t eat.

    As an acupuncturist and herbalist with a fair amount of nutrition knowledge, it is my understanding that raw egg whites deplete the body of B vitamins pretty strongly, so I would steer clear of consuming them, especially on a regular basis (but raw egg yolks are fine/great to consume without any adverse effects as far as I know!).
  20. Shirley
    Can anyone tell me what a "pinch" of vanilla is?

    I did a quick google search on egg whites and how they affect vitamin b absorption. Apparently not all vitamin b's are effected, only biotin, and you have to consume A LOT of egg whites. If you only eat egg whites in the morning, it shouldn't effect your absorption with your other meals. Do your own research.

    This is delicious and so easy to modify - sometimes I make with coffee, sometimes I add cocoa, too. A blender is a must!!

    Doesn’t the boiling water cook the eggs, when you add it? Or is that the idea?

    Hi Lu!

    Eggs are nor a dairy product.

    Why does this say dairy free when the recipe calls for eggs

  27. Diedre
    This has become my go-to breakfast most mornings. I have changed the recipe quite a bit though, so I thought I'd share. I don't have any problems consuming dairy and I haven't really gotten on the coconut oil bandwagon yet, so I've adapted this to fit what I regularly have in my fridge/pantry. I have also found that (as with most eggy things) this recipe really needs some salt to bring out the flavors so don't skimp on that.

    1 egg
    1 cup water
    1 TBS butter
    pinch of salt
    sweetener/flavorings of choice***
    heavy cream to taste

    Put the water, butter, and salt in the microwave and bring to a boil. Crack the egg into the blender, then (while the blender is running) pour the boiling water in.
    Add sweetener/flavorings and cream and blend again until well mixed.

    ***Some flavor combos I like:
    - Hazelnut Hot Cocoa: 1 TBS cocoa, vanilla and hazelnut sugar-free Toriani syrups
    - Eggnog: nutmeg, vanilla and caramel sugar-free Toriani syrups
    - Pumpkin Spice: 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, vanilla sugar-free Toriani syrup OR vanilla extract and sweetener of choice

  28. Lori
    Thank you! I brew coffee first. I mix eggs and spices(allspice, nutmeg and pure vanilla extract liquid in my Nurtibullet blender first then adding coffee and coconut oil to mix. I added a little bit of cinnoman on the top. Yummy!

    Was very dubious about this recipe - But wanted something quick and light so gave it a try - it was good!! It didn’t taste eggy at all after adding the vanilla and spices - will def add coffee to the boiling water next time.
  31. Heidi
    I made this without coconut oil (didnt have any) and added a tbs of heavy cream and coffee grounds. Not a lot of sweetness (maybe that is what the coconut oil adds?) But I really liked it (I do drink my coffee black so I am used to unsweet drink) and it is very filling. Will make again!
  32. Michelle
    Just made this as a breakfast substitute (I've gotten ridiculously tired of having eggs with bacon and avocado every morning for the last two months) and I absolutely love it! Tastes just like a foamy cappuccino. I substituted the suggested spices with unsweetened, organic raw cacao and blended everything in my nutribullet for 5 seconds. So good! Didn't have the same issue as other reviewers about it tasting too eggy- I could hardly taste them. As for the vanilla extract I just eye balled it. Definitely agree the drink is very filling.

    Will be using this recipe again for a while! Thanks (:

    In many places outside the US, a latte is not a coffee drink at all. The recipe tip does say that you can add instant coffee or cocoa!

    Does this drink break the fast?

    Yes. In general, anything other than water, bone broth, tea or coffee (a splash of cream may be OK) is likely to break a fast.

    I just made this this morning. Day 1 of the two week challenge. I can't stomach 8 eggs. I really tried. I ate half. I then made this to try and substitute for some of the eggs.
    I made it as directed, except I used vanilla beans as that is all I had on hand, go figure. Anyways this is delicious and may have it every morning. Will have to get some chocolate powder
  39. Lorraine
    It was good, i made the chocolate flavor and i beat the hell out of those eggs with everything except the hot water. The foam was amazing, slowly added the hot water while blending and amazing!
  40. Jamie
    Well said! I was thinking the EXACT same thing!
  41. Donna
    Skeptically made this recipe this morning, minus the pumpkin pie spice....it was surprisingly delicious!!
    Going to try coffee next time and see what happens.
  42. Marie
    I use coconut oil...that is in a solid state, and MCT oil with my bulletproof coffee. Which coconut does the
    recipe refer to? And if it's in the solid state, do you melt it first or just blend it with everything else? TIA

    You can use whichever you prefer. Many people keep coconut oil on the counter, so it's semi-soft already. You can put the coconut oil in the blender and then the coffee; the heat will melt it quickly.

    The trick is to use the blender immediately so that doesn't have a chance to happen.

    I made this latte this morning because I'm generally not a breakfast person but I wanted to follow the Challenge rules and have SOMETHING for breakfast. I really enjoyed it. I too was concerned about the egg cooking and followed another reader's advice. I put the egg and coconut oil in my blender with a dash of vanilla extract and a little instant coffee then started it on low. I slowly added the boiled water in a steady stream, then I turned up the blender speed a bit to make it nice and frothy. I was very surprised at how good it was and plan to add it to my morning routine. It's also nice to be able to change up the flavor to what suits you.

    Does the word "Latte" not imply that this is a coffee drink? Why is there no coffee in this recipe when you call it Latte?

    A latte is not a coffee drink everywhere! Many countries they are milk based. Please note the Tip that you can include coffee or chocolate to suit your preferences.

  49. Tori
    I followed Becky's instructions above and it was super quick to make and delicious although I do prefer the butter coffee. That being said, I will make it again.

    Thank you!! Needed to be said. Now needs to be read .

    And . . . RAW EGGS??? That sounds fairly dicey to me, even with boiling water.
  52. Mel
    I made this using cocoa, wasn't to nice then I added in a teaspoon of monkfruit sweetener and it turned out great!
    I used my stick blender. I started blending then added in the boiling water and had no issues with the egg cooking.
