Our Version of Grapefruit Julius Smoothy

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!

Variations

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.
