This is the biohacker’s egg nog. The nog that keeps on kicking. Kicking butt that is, at your health and stress-resilience goals. This is the nog for your noggin (brain health optimization) and your body (nutrition therapy minus the food sensitivities/allergens).** It’s for people that love nog but can’t do cream and sugar, and for folks who don’t usually like egg nog but have a hankering’ for some nutmeg cinnamon spice up in their paleoesque superfood smoothie. This is the ketogenic friendly low carb athlete’s secret December weapon of choice. This is the Rocky fan and herbalist’s milk shake. This recipe is here to help you make a big difference in your health while you’re busy being festive.
Most importantly, this egg nog which is made with real organic egg yolks tastes better than store bought sugary egg nog and is sharable with your friends and family at any occasion while skyrocketing their health and mood. Even your Uncle Joe who loves conventional rum-spiked egg nog can have this (and it might help him avoid a carb-coma this year). 😉
Blend in blender for 30 seconds:
4 organic pasture-raised egg yolks
1/3 cup hydrolyzed collagen protein powder
1/3 cup organic refined coconut oil
1/3 cup sweet LUV (or sweetener of choice)
1/3 cup colostrum powder
1 teaspoon Longevity Power Maca Bliss
1 teaspoon Longevity Power Pearl Extract or GLOW He Shou Wu
1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
1/4 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon organic cinnamon powder (Ceylon cinnamon is best, cassia cinnamon is 2nd best)
2-5 pinches of ground nutmeg (or ever better is zested or chopped small pieces of whole nutmeg), to taste (strong but essential stuff, start with less)
2 pinches sea salt
1/2 cup very warm or hot spring water
Then add and blend for 20 seconds:
2 cups spring water ice cubes
Pour into some classy cups, glasses of mugs, and top with small pinches of organic cinnamon powder, ground vanilla, organic ground nutmeg, organic ground clove, organic cocoa powder and/or colostrum powder.
Optional: Add your favorite tonic tinctures of choice or, if you drink or are serving nog to your social drinking friends and family, offer a shot of rum, brandy, bourbon or other spirit, to taste. Egg nog is traditionally designed to be rich and thick enough to be thinned slightly by alcohol. This recipe is a great way to sneak some health back into your loved ones under the radar, whether they prefer their holiday cheer virgin or spiked.
Optional: For the coffee lovers, you can add coffee or espresso to ‘bullet proof’ this (the ingredients colostrum and coconut oil count as your butter and MCT oil in this case).
To your healthiest of holidays and a new year blessed with fulfilling accomplishments!
