This trick is to simply add an egg to your coffee.
Now I know what you’re thinking because I had the exact same thought when I first read it. “Add an egg to my coffee? Nasty!”
The truth of the matter, however, is that adding egg to your coffee has a similar effect that adding creamer would. It cuts the bitterness of the coffee without adding any real flavor of its own. You’re not going to drink this coffee and think “Ugh…this tastes like eggs and coffee.” Eggs by themselves are fairly flavorless. We’re just used to them tasting a certain way due to cooking them in butter/oil and adding spices like salt and pepper.
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it one more time: Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse. They are full of healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals that will keep you strong, healthy, and mentally sharp (eggs accomplish this due to the choline in them). Beyond the benefits listed above, they are great for keeping you full and have zero carbs for those watching their carb numbers.
So if you’re one of those guys who doesn’t like their coffee so black that it has it’s own event horizon (or you just want to get a few more calories in each day along with some key vitamins and minerals), seriously consider giving this recipe a shot.
What You’ll Need
- A pot of hot coffee
- A regular blender or immersion blender
- Whatever else you want to add to your coffee (cinnamon, sugar, vanilla extract, etc)
The process is pretty simple but please be sure to read the disclaimer further down before attempting this with a regular blender. I take no responsibility for you burning yourself or creating a huge mess.
- While your coffee is brewing, get the blender ready and go ahead and add your eggs to the blender. You will need about 1 egg for ever 2-3 cups of coffee.
- Once the coffee is done, immediately add it to the blender, put the top on, and pulse about a dozen times. Be sure to keep your hand firmly on the top of the blender or else the steam can make the lid pop off. Also, do not just turn the blender on. Use the pulse option only.
- Add any additional flavorings/spices to your coffee and pulse a couple more times to mix everything up.
- Pour and consume.
There you have it, gentlemen; breakfast in a cup! Hell, if you are so inclined, you could combine J.Nyx’s recipe with mine and have a mixed coffee with a good dose of protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. The possibilities are endless (I’ve personally been eyeing a cinnamon roll protein powder that would taste great with this recipe).
I typically drink my coffee so black that light can’t escape it, but I do occasionally like to indulge. So, with that being said, what additions do you guys have that could be added to this recipe that makes it your own? Leave them in the comments below.
