This is a sponsored post for Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs. A smoothie that is nutrient packed but tastes like dessert. Perfect for breakfast, the kids or post work out.
Raw eggs have always weirded me out. Even the idea of eating partially cooked eggs gave me the willies, that is until I discovered pasteurized eggs. Though I knew they were safe to consume raw, it took me months to gain the courage to actually eat a raw egg. I eased my way into the raw egg world, it started with sunny side up eggs, meringue, mayonnaise... now I have graduated to smoothies.
This smoothie is great because not only is it nutrient packed it tastes like dessert. Sometimes after a long workout I crave something calorie laden, however I know my body needs to refuel. Smoothies are my favorite go to post workout meal. This is the best of both worlds!
Key Lime Pie Smoothie
1- 1 1/2 cup skim milk (you can also use whole, almond, coconut, soy)
1 raw Davidson's Safest Choice Egg (this can only be made with pasteurized eggs)
1small handful baby spinach (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 an avocado
The juice of 2 limes
1 date (pit removed)
1 tsp ground flax seed
Honey to sweeten
In your blender add 1 cup of milk (add more later if needed), egg, spinach, avocado, lime juice and date. Blend until smooth. Sweeten to taste, I used about 1 tsp of honey others may prefer more or less. Add additional milk if the smoothie is too thick. Pour into serving glass and top with ground flax seed.
I am proud to say I am a brand ambassador for Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs. Over the past several months I have been exploring the benefits to cooking with pasteurized eggs. I now can feel safe cooking with my children and consuming raw or partially cooked eggs knowing there is no risk of salmonella or other foodborne illness.
