warm egg cream?

sat i made an egg cream to take with me to a creaft fair that i was doing. it would have tasted great warm....here's what it had in it:

3 egg yolks
1/4c HC
1/4c ( i think) almond milk...maybe a bit more.
vanilla
caramel davinci's

i just blended it with my stick blender and added ice cubes to keep it cold.

if i wanted to make this a warm drink, how would i go about that? this was nice and thick. my mom said it tasted like eggnog.

For great egg nog.

1 egg
2-3 tbsp butter or co
2 sweeteners
nutmeg &cinnamon
3/4 C boiling water

Blend while adding the water. Exchange spices for cocoa powder for hot cocoa. Use hot fresh brewed coffee instead of water for yummy frothy coffee drink.

What I would TRY...

I would warm it with a double boiler...you know pan of water ON the burner with a bowl on the top put the egg cream in the top and stir it until it's warm...

It might thicken too much though, so you may need to add more water or cream.

I've not done this at all. I think it would work...but you might end up with scrambled egg cream...so be aware of the risk and give it a go...and then let me know how it worked out.

Lots of women blend the eggs, cream and flavoring and add it to hot tea or coffee.

I did it with coffee a lot, it is really good

Yes, if you have the time, take your eggs out early and let them come to room temp. If not (and I rarely do), just add a good 6-8 oz. of really hot coffee, tea, or your almond milk. It heats the eggs up nicely without cooking them.

well I was figuring, room temp eggs arn't as cold as eggs from the fridge..
so if you just added a little hot water or hot cream/ almond milk etc.. the eggcream would get warmer then if you added cold eggs to it..

I made hot chocolate today using 2 TBS coconut oil, spritz vanilla, sweetner to taste, and 3/4 cup boiling water. Blend up in a blender. Add egg and let sit 40 seconds then blend (didn't turn into scrambled eggs and I just took the egg out of the fridge). Then add 1 - 2 tbs cocoa powder and blend again. It was really creamy and quite yummy. It's by far the easiest way to get in coconut oil, and the oil blended in - wasn't a slick on top. It would have probably been better even better with a bit of heavy cream.

[COLOR="Purple"]Egg Cream Cappuccino[/COLOR]

About 5 oz leftover hot coffee

About a 1/2 cup boiling water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pkt Splenda (or equivalent sweetener)
1 or 2 eggs

1 pkt Splenda

Put coffee in a large mug. Add next 4 ingredients to a blender/Magic Bullet and blend until frothy. (30 sec?) Pour into mug with the coffee. Sprinkle top with last Splenda pkt and slowly stir in.

This is nice and frothy, like a "real" cappuccino.

And if you're like me and don't think far enough ahead to take the eggs out to warm up for half an hour before you want that egg cream - you can put them in a bowl with very warm (not too hot!) water - enough to cover the eggs - for about 5 minutes and it accomplishes the same thing!

I love my warm Egg Creams!

Since I'm doing the Egg / Protein Fast and Egg Creams are an essential part of my plan, I love them!

In the Summer I love them icy. When it gets cold I love them warm and comforting.

I change them often, but here's my basic right now (no dairy)

4 cups boiling water
1 teabag of Celestian Seasoning English Toffee Tea
Let steep 5 minutes.

Pour tea (4 cups) in the VitaMix.
Add:
3 TB organic virgin coconut oil
1 TB organic unsweetened cocoa powder
3 packets Truvia or stevia to taste

Blend.
Add in:
3 TB organic apple cider vinegar
3 organic eggs

Blend until frothy.
Drink warm.

YUMMM!!!!!!!!!

Mountain Girl - I have been watching your posts on egg creams, etc.
Do you really use 4 cups of a beverage with it? A lot to drink - is it easy to get down that much. I know mine are smaller, but I am always sad when they are empty...LOL

Yes, I really do use 4 cups of liquid and it makes about 8 cups of Egg Cream after whipping and incorporating air into it.

I drink it slowly over about an hour or more. The extra volume helps keep me full.

You can make it smaller by only using 2 cups of tea.

I just made an Eggnog Latte, this is my all time favorite drink from Starbucks - but I never get it because it's loaded with carbs. Here's my version (I made this with an espresso machine).

1 egg
1/4 cup HWC
1/2 cup water (may use only 1/4 water next time, it's a bit watery)
1 shot espresso
sweetener of choice
freshly grated nutmeg and cinnamon
vanilla (just a splash)

Blend egg, water and cream in blender. Pour this mixture into a milk steamer (from espresso machine) and steam until hot and frothy (the egg didn't curdle, can't even tell it's in there!). Pull shot of espresso, add to a mug and add splash of vanilla and sweetener of choice. Add the hot water/egg/cream mixture to the mug. Grate nutmeg and cinnamon on top and stir. Add more cinnamon, nutmeg and sweetener to taste. MMM!

I am giving this old thread a bump. I am recently back to LC (had been following JUDDD...still am, but am adding the low carb element back in), and remember egg creams as a favorite menu staple. Quick, easy, delicious. This thread had a couple of good recipes...I'm gonna start here. =)
