Okay, so you might be freaking out, going this girl is crazy, she is putting raw eggs into her smoothies, I promise you this is a much better add in than commercial made highly processed oxidized protein powder.

The Nutritional Benefits of Eating Raw Eggs:

Eggs contain impressive supplies of selenium, iodine, phosphorus, molybdenum, choline, lutein, vitamins A, B2, B5, B12, E, D and K. Add to this a healthy 5.5 grams of protein, 20% of your RDA for tryptophan and essential fatty acids. Some of these properties (especially vitamins C, B6 and B9) can be damaged during cooking so I recommend consuming them raw.

Ingredients

  • 150ml coconut water
  • ½ a banana
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1 tsp. organic vanilla powder
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil

Directions: Simple. Blend and Drink.
