Eggnog Smoothie with 1 Minute Vanilla Whip

by Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit) on December 8, 2011

Oh my nog.

It doesn’t get better than this.

Creamy deliciousness topped with a high protein sweet whip… zomg take me away.

I did two things with my leftover homemade eggnog – pancakes and a smoothie.

And when all was said and done, I wish I had just made two smoothies and been done with it. The pancakes were good, but the smoothie was better.

Thankfully, I now know just how easy it is to make eggnog that making another batch doesn’t intimidate me. Maybe this time I’ll sweetened it with 2 medjool dates to lower the sugar content even further.

Until then, I’ll just stare at this picture and remind myself how darn tasty this was!

I enjoyed my smoothie and pancakes while inputting the last of what is now a collection of 277 recipes, into recipage.

I know firsthand how frustrating it can be when you’re searching for the perfect recipe on your favorite blog and are greeted with a billion posts you weren’t intending on reading. Thankfully, the folks over at recipage knew exactly what challenges bloggers were faced with and created an absolute perfect solution.

This new page will make your time on the blog more efficient, and makes me happy knowing that you’re finding what you’re looking for when you stop by!

You can search by ingredient and keywords,

cooking method,

course,

and my favorite, dietary!

It’s all there. If you head on over to the page, let me know what you think!

Okay, time to get to work and begin dreaming about my next eggnog smoothie.

Have an amazing Thursday, all :)

so sorry the pancakes turned out not so hot…..but YUUMMMMY! for your smoothie!!! So do you just keep the egg whites uncooked? I always get nervous when eating raw egg whites. I mean, I eat them all the time when I’m sampling baked goods (oopsie… :P ).

And the recipage looks great! I love it, Leanne!

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

Yup, uncooked egg whites. I use farm fresh/organic eggs so I don’t worry too much about it. Alternatively, you could cook and add to the top (it would be like a meringue but still just as tasty!)

You know, the entry wasn’t too bad, actually. I kinda miss it now that I’m done. Is that sad? It was a project that I did maybe 1 hour a day for a month… mindless entry. But ya, it did take up a lot of time!

Oooh I can’t wait to try this whip. I’ve been making eggnog (banana) soft serve for dessert almost every night this past week! : )

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

Mm eggnog soft serve would be delicious! I’ll have to try that :)

The whip sounds so awesome!! Very creative, and the smoothie, omg delicious. I’m not too big on eggnog but I think in a smoothie the flavor would be so awesome.

Andrea

Ok, this seals the deal for me. Definately making your eggnog recipe! And the whip looks awesome. :)

As for the recipage, I LOVE that you have one! I really liked your recipe page because it was nice to see all of the pictures, though. But, I prefer it over just a recipe page when I’m actually looking for a specific recipe or type of recipe.

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

Thanks Andrea! Lucky for you, I’m running with both! So, you can go checkout all of the up-to-date pictures, or search for recipes on my recipage :) Can’t wait to hear how you like the eggnog!

I love the fluffy egg white trick! I’ve never used it for whip cream—but I often put it in baked goods that I’m leaving the flour out of so they get fluffy. Thanks for sharing this—it looks awesome!

I am excited to indulge in a healthy smoothie breakfast that does not have any tinge of green in color. Nice to have variations every once in a while, right? This Christmas variation is fatastic…I am enjoying the Christmas season, a lot better with this smoothie. Gonna whip it up right now!

Enjoy the smoothie, Anna :)

Looks so good. I am going to have to try your eggnog. Looking for a dairy free, non soy option. Can’t wait!! and have you ever tried Nutribiotic organic vanilla rice protein powder? If so, how did you like it?

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

I tried nutribiotic rice protein ages ago and liked it until I found the sprouted rice protein from Heartland. I just find it tastes better. But proteins are hard to get right, they’re such an acquired taste!

This looks amazing!(as always) I look at your blog almost everyday (:
I was wondering if you knew of a healthy recipe for angel food cake?

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

I’m happy to hear you like my blog, Noel! So funny of you to mention angel food cake, I was looking into making one made with coconut flour in the coming weeks! Here are two recipes that I found that may be of interest to you: http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/grain-free-angel-food-cake/ and: http://cassidys.hubpages.com/hub/-Yummy-Gluten-Free-Dairy-Free-Angel-Food-Cake would love to know how they go if you give them a shot!

From the recipe, it seems that you don’t cook the egg whites, but isn’t that unsafe? It looks delicious though, so I definitely want to try it out

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

It’s a preference thing. I purchase my eggs organic + free range and don’t worry too much about cooking. If you’re concerned, you can remove the topping and replace with a coconut whip similar to this recipe: http://www.healthfulpursuit.com/2011/06/strawberry-cinnamon-shortcake-sandwiches/ hope that helps :)

This recipe looks awesome. i was just wondering if it was okay to consume the egg whites raw?

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

I don’t worry too much about consuming the egg whites raw, but it’s a preference thing. If you’re uneasy about it, you can make small meringues to place in the smoothie, or go without the topping, or try a coconut whipped topping instead like the one used in this recipe: http://www.healthfulpursuit.com/recipage/?recipe_id=6006574
