Breakfast In A Glass

This smoothie is a throw-back to my childhood; I'm not sure where the original recipe came from, but it truly is "Breakfast In a Glass": egg, fruit, milk, and juice!

1 cup milk
1 banana
1 raw egg
1 large spoonful OJ concentrate
1 squeeze honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 T wheat germ (optional)

Throw it all in a blender:

A word about raw eggs: People tend to freak out about salmonella whenever raw eggs are mentioned. It is extremely unlikely that you will get salmonella from eating a raw egg. The contamination rate of eggs with salmonella is 1 in 20,000-30,000 eggs. With average egg consumption, this comes out to a person maybe coming across a salmonella-contaminated egg once every 42 years!

  1. Just came across your blog thanks for all the info :) You can buy pasteurized eggs & use them in recipes that call for raw eggs; Crystal Farms is the brand I have used.
