    Mango?!?!

    What happened to Andreas' "fruit is nature's candy?" Are you seriously recommending mangos daily for those who read this blog, the majority of whom struggled with pre-diabetes or full T2D?!?!?

    Nowadays even most "normal" weight people are actually insulin resistant and skinny-fat. They also shouldn't be slurping down the sugary liquid calories, which encourage over-consumption & high blood numbers.

    Looks great tasting, but I am concerned about recommending raw eggs: although the yolks are fine, my impression is that raw whites interfere with biotin absorption, a micronutrient in which many folks are already deficient. Also… this is a lot of fruit in the a.m., I like to keep fruit carbs til after dinner. Your thoughts?

    What is vanilla powder? I am in the USA. We have lots of protein powders but I stopped using whey protein powder as it seemed to give me a sugar surge even though it used stevia and a small amount at that.

    I drink a lot of egg smoothies, adding butter and coconut oil, and if you heat some water to boiling and add to ingredients in blender, the boiling water will coddle (cook) the eggs. Real vanilla powder, or scraping out a vanilla bean is expensive. Now brand has a alcohol free vanilla flavoring. You can cook some broccoli florets the day before, stash in fridge and add to the smoothie the next morning. I like turmeric as a spice to flavor it as well as 1/2 tsp sea salt. I have made something similar, melting everything together except eggs, then blend, and freeze to make "ice cream". However, those eggs would not really be cooked.

    Most people – even readers of this blog – can probably tolerate a small amount of fruit occasionally (nature's candy). People with diabetes will have to decide if it's worth it to them (often the answer could be no).

    But you are right, the small amount of mango or kiwi fruit would tend to supply more sugar than the other suggestions and the nutritional facts (carbs/serving) could be a bit misleading, so I removed them from the recipe.

    Hi,
    I can't take coconut oil, it makes me sick. Can I substitute with e.g. olive oil, or what would you recommend?

    Thanks,

    Deborah, This is of cause just an anecdote but recently there was a pice in media about one of the oldest persons on this planet, a 115 year old French woman. Her recepy for linving longer was 3 raw eggs a day and living single. But, yes there are antinutrients in raw eggs so it might be wise to eat most of your daily eggs cooked. 3 raw eggs a day is probebly safe to eat. And by the way, judging from another anecdote reported in medical litterature, 25 eggs a day seems to be a safe level of consumtion. A 88 year old man had consumed 25 eggs a day for + 15 years and was in perfect health and had normal cholesterol.

    So to sum it all up: Take 3 daily servings of the Smoothie and Latte described above to ensure an intake of 3 raw eggs. Make sure to boil the remaining 22 eggs in your daily diet and you will live a long and healthy life ;-)

    What about (potential?) salmonella in raw eggs?
    Replies: #9, #20

    Ater,
    Here in Sweden, were we have much more strict regulations concerning animal care than in the US (among them, not allowing antibiotics in the feed unless the chickens really have an infection) we have managed to produce sallmonella free eggs for decades. So my advice would be: Buy your eggs from an organic producer you trust. If you have some kind of immunodeficency, boil them.

    re: ½ cup (1 dl) yogurt, 10%

    10% what, milkfat?

    For the US audience, it's probably also worth emphasizing to use full fat yogurt, which is frankly not that easy to find. Most yogurts here are sky hi gly junk confections.

    Smoothies make great vehicles for adding in your daily prebiotic fiber.

    Raw eggs? No problem - raise your own chickens :)

    Don't eat raw egg white every meal.

    Lots of foods have anti nutrients, such as phytates in unsprouted grains, seeds and nuts and oxalates in uncooked spinach and kale.

    What is yogurt 10%? I assume we need to use full fat yogurt like Greek yogurt but that has more than 10% fat?

    Go for that then.. the fattyer the better.

    Russian youghurt is 18% here in sweden.. its the favorite now a days for Swedish lowcarbers.

    I belive that different dairy company label there products whit nice labels to sell more.

    Its strained youghurt and it got different names in different countrys.

    I was in Turkey at easter.. there yoghurt tasted different then Swedish Turkish youghurt.. strange isnt it?

    Labne is another name.

    People with Diabetes can't eat all those fruits, a banana has 29 grams of carbohydrates. Yet, most so called diabetic recipes have flour and fruits etc. in them. You are correct.
  15. Carol Glanton
    so what is vanilla powder??? I use vanilla extract, with almond milk, coconut oil, 1 raw egg. mix in blender. some times cocoa powder, but never heard of vanilla powder.
  16. Sonja
    Here in the U.S. you can buy Davidson's Safe Choice (TM) pasteurized eggs (Publix is one store that carries them). That's what I use in my morning eggnog.

    My father
    (who is 91 with no major health problems except hard of hearing /still sharp mentally/ still working /rides his bicycle to get around)
    has had a drink containing raw eggs for breakfast every day of his adult life.

    Hey everyone, if you do not like some of the ingredients leave them out. If you don't like a lot of them eat something different. Simple ;-) Recipes are suggestions for things you want to make. If raw eggs concern you have scrambled eggs for breakfast and not this. Thank you Diet Dr for the recipe.

    I am not sure about the spices in the recipe, is it one teaspoon each ginger, cloves and cinnamon?

    As far as I know salmonella grows in the gut of a chicken, so if there is about it might be on the shell of an egg but not actually in it! Give your eggs a rinse with some cold water if you are worried about this, then wash your hands with soap and water, break the egg into a clean container. This is an eggcelent recipe ;-)

    Here in the UK there isn't any vanilla powder either but vanilla essence. I think some of them are very much weaker than the powder so just try and find what you like.
    Also, the Yoghurt, turkish or Greek here, contains only 10 fat. Lidl has the best ones, I think.

    Regarding the coffee...please, don't say instant!(Here in Uk , most people use instant but you only get a few grains and it is only then brown water. Horrible!) I would prefer some real coffee, eh?

    Just made this Dairy free Latte with 1 teaspoon of 100% super dark chocolate powder (from Cailler, I live in Switzerland), 1 pinch of vanilla powder and 1 pinch of ground cardamom, 2 TS of coconut oil and boiling water: I mixed everything high speed in the thermomix and added 2 fresh organic free range eggs. Shown temperature on the Thermomix: 90C°. So the eggs were pasteurized. It is the best hot chocolate I ever drank and it is LCHF with 1.8g carbs and 42g Fat! WOW! Thank you Dietdoctor!

    Is it safe to have raw eggs? :)

    See my remark above. If you use boiling water and mix it in, the temperature of the whole shake will be around 80-90C°. Pasteurisation is at 72C°. So the eggs are no more raw when you drink them!
  26. Jess
    Love this recipe, fast and easy. The first time I did it, I put in way too much ground cloves though. It's a bit of trial and error as far as the spices go, I usually just eye them now. I just used granulated stevia, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, and a pinch(!) of vanilla sugar-since I couldn't find vanilla powder. Allover about 1g carbs :)
  27. Nakaiya
    Oh my gosh, I LOVE this recipe. I made it exactly as instructed:

    2 eggs
    2 tablespoons coconut oil
    1½ cups (400 ml) hot water
    1 pinch vanilla powder
    1 teaspoon ground ginger, cloves and cinnamon

    And it's delicious! I'm not a big fan of eggs and was struggling to find another recipe that I could use besides scrambled eggs every morning and this recipe hides the egg taste well. I'm starting the two week challenge tomorrow and I know this breakfast recipe will help me through the next few weeks.

    Thank you for sharing.

  28. Caramello
    I made this today and well, I'm not sure wether maybe my spices are old or maybe I need to tweak the amounts for my personal taste and the fact that I did not have any vanilla may be the reason, but the cloves was a bit much and I used nutmeg which I won't use in the future.
    One thing is for sure though I am not even half way through it and I am feeling completely full.

    The raw eggs are not a problem and blend nicely.

  29. Theresa
    Interesting string regarding the raw eggs. But, I am hesitant over the hot water/coffee and how to mix the ingredients without cooking the eggs. I do not see anyone saying this is a problem so in my mind I am wondering what the steps are which seem to work? Start blending with everything already in the bowl, or start blending them gradually add each egg till fully incorporated? I can just see egg strings like egg drop soup!

    Can't see yogurt 10% anywhere? Am I looking at the wrong place?
    I live in Brazil and there's absolutely no chance of getting what you people buy in Sweden. This is a tropical third world country.
    No Greek yogurt, not plain anyway. Everything has sugar in it. Fat-free abounds. No 10% anything.
  34. Geraldine Denise
    No it isn't , that would make it VERY strong!
  35. Denise
    Instead of water, I put in unsweetened almond milk, a little bit of heavy whipping cream, a spoonful or so of plain canned pumpkin, and a little bit of artificial sugar with the other ingredients in the recipe. I heated up the almond milk and whipping cream in the microwave. It is really good!
  36. Jane
    I am lactose intolerant. I am affected by cheese, milk anything with cows milk as well as soy products. I can only ingest almond milk. Do you have a substitute for dairy products being that most of your recipes have ingredients with cows milk including butter which seems to be a main component of LCHF.

    I would like to know if almond milk would be acceptable in moderation while doing LCHF.
    'Blue Diamond' unsweetened vanilla almond milk only has 2g of carbs per one cup.
    I was looking at a smoothie recipe here on the site and saw the use of coconut milk/cream and was wondering could I use almond milk occasionally for a low carb smoothie.

    I made this with coconut cream and coffee today and love it. Been planning to try it for a while but was a bit scared of the idea of putting eggs into hot water - I thought they would turn to scrambled egg!!!! Glad I tried it - no scrambled eggs, just a lovely frothy and delicious latte. I am looking forward to trying different variations now - cocoa version next I think!
  43. Laura
    I just tried this. I cut the recipe in half, used coco powder and 6 ounces of brewed coffee instead of water sprinkled a little cinnamon on top. Yummy.

    Dietdoctor, this drink is delicious. I live in U S and used 2 organic eggs, regular vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. It is amazing and very satisfying. Thank you for this recipe? A wonderful way to start the day .?

    Hi Shari!

    We recommend that you avoid sweeteners at least for daily use. If you don't have problems with cravings and use sweeteners once or twice a week then you can use the one you think have the best taste. :)
