Grapefruit Julius Smoothy Recipe
I have searched for great tasting recipes that include raw egg, as raw eggs are actually more nutritious than cooked eggs. This Grapefruit Julius Smoothy has several variations, including a dairy free version, and a coconut milk version. And the addition of essential oils create a real special flavor!
First you will need 2 cups of almond nut milk.
Put 1/3 cup almonds into a high speed blender or Vita-mix.
Add 2 cups cold water. Blend on high for 3 minutes.
Strain through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag.
Rinse out the Vita-mix container, and add the nut milk back in.
Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon Sweet Leaf brand powdered stevia extract.
Add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, or 1 inch of dried vanilla bean, chopped.
Add 10 drops pink grapefruit essential oil.
Add 2 whole eggs.
Blend again on medium high setting, for just long enough to thoroughly mix the smoothie.
Pour it in a large glass or mason jar, and top with a sprinkle of nutmeg. Drink and enjoy!
Coconut milk version: Replace nut milk with 1/2 cup culinary coconut cream, and 1-1/2 cups water.
Dairy friendly version: Replace nut milk with 2 cups hormone free, grass fed yogurt with live cultures. Add an additional 1/4 teaspoon stevia extract.
High protein version: Add 3 tablespoons chia seed to the smoothy. Allow it to sit for 20 ,omits to let the chia seed reach its hydrated state.
Blueberry version: Eliminate grapefruit essential oil. Add 1/2 cup blueberries and 2 drops clove essential oil.
