    I'm a vegetarian, and the protein from my chicken's eggs is a big source of protein for me. But I get so sick of the taste of cooked eggs! I want to eat more of them, without diluting them too much into baking or some other recipe that just has a few eggs in it...it's got to be something that is still high in protein.

    I LOVE eggnog, so I've been thinking about making some other drinks with raw eggs, maybe a fruit smoothie or something.

    Anyone make any drinks--besides eggnog--with raw eggs? Anyone drink them straight up like Rocky?

    My grandpa talks about his uncle cracking 2 or 3 eggs into a glass of milk for breakfast each morning. I've never tried it but it sounds interesting. He was really disgusted about it though.

    I think a lot of smoothies contain raw egg. So we probably all have eaten it at some point. Doesn't seem offensive to me.

    Also, I find a little green tobasco sauce makes me like eggs more for eating them cooked.

    I used to know a guy who put a couple of eggs in his coffee in the morning with cream and sugar...made for a creamy latte:>)

    Orange Julius used to use raw egg.
    Originally, and through the 1980's, a raw egg blended into the drink was offered as an option. This was seen as a good source of protein for body builders. However, the option was later dropped for food safety reasons, and bananas are now offered as a substitute.

    That banana-egg drink sounds really good. I'll have to try making an orange julius with an egg sometime, but that's more like a treat than something for everyday or for breakfast. Eggs in milk...I'd add some vanilla and sugar...like a mild egg nog, that would be good. But that coffee and egg drink? BLECCHHHH!!! [​IMG]

    It's so easy to gross out at the thought of drinking eggs, but we all gross out so much at new food...once we try it, it might be really good, once we get used to it. It's funny how we learn certain food combinations that we stick with throughout life. Maybe coffee and eggs are good, once you get over the instinct to yak it up! I bet ketchup on eggs sounded gross to a lot of people before it "caught on".

    Having been born and raised in L.A., we used to have Orange Julius' at stands all through the summer. They were very cold, frothy (both important.) and you couldn't tell there was egg in them at all.

    To me they seemed like a sweetened, chilled, frothed, orange drink. No milk or other flavors. [​IMG]

    By the way, I'm a hypoglycemic, and need a mix of protein and carb snack around. One of my favorites is my homemade 15 white angelfood cake!

    It's high protein, some carb and sugar, no fat. If you'd like the recipe, just let me know! [​IMG]

    Oh, and you can just snack on a piece, or serve it with something served over it. One of my favorites is a blueberry sauce I make, which is easy, and uses whole berries.

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    When I was a kid I used to put about a cup of milk in the blender with a raw egg, blend it up, chunk in some ice cubes, and then add maple syrup (the real thing). YUM. You can put nutmeg on top.

    And although it's been probably 40 years since I had that, I think I may go make one right now!
