Ever had Egg Coffee? At first it sounded downright unreal to us. But now that we’ve had it, we’ve made it over and over. However, I haven’t won anyone over to it, though I’m winning more and more people over to home-roasting their own coffee.*
It’s a terrific way to add some substance to your coffee, and if you add even more to the basic recipe it can be a combination of coffee and breakfast.
The simplest recipe is simply 2 eggs** blended with coffee.
Take 2 whole eggs and crack them into a blender. Make your coffee. When the coffee is ready, pour it into the blender with the eggs and blend them. Voilá! Egg Coffee!
If you want to add some pizzazz to it, even make it breakfast, then here’s what we like to do. Just blend all of the ingredients below, except the coffee, and leave in the blender until you’re ready to put in the coffee.*** Because the coffee cooks the eggs a little, I make sure that I pour some coffee in and blend right away; this prevents any congealing.
2 whole eggs
1 tsp honey
1 TBSP Carob powder
1/4 cup Whipping Cream
Pinch of Cinnamon
1 cup of coffee (6 oz.)
While your coffee is cooking, an added bonus is to get some whipped cream ready to place on top; you can save the cinnamon to put on top of the whipping cream.You can also get some large-crystal salt to sprinkle on top.
If you use all organic ingredients, then you’ve got a very healthy treat!
*NOTE: I HIGHLY recommend roasting your own coffee – just look up “home roasting coffee.” This allows for Flexibility, Flavor, Freshness and Fun. I get my beans from Sweet Maria’s (www.sweetmarias.com) and I roast them using an air popcorn popper.
**NOTE: The eggs need to be organic/natural/real. This is because the eggs are raw and only slightly “cooked” in the coffee. Just like many sites will tell you, if you eat raw eggs, then use organic…the typical white ones you buy can’t be trusted when raw.
***NOTE: When making coffee, think of it as “cooking,” because that’s what you’re really doing. “Cook (verb): to prepare for eating, especially by using heat.”
