I have one that's similar to the magic bullet but is made by cuisinart. The quality seems much better than the magic bullet. I've had it for about a year and use it a LOT.

Extra virgin coconut oil. It isn't a dumb question at all. I think I had to Google this at one point too.

I want to try this...but have to admit I get wigged out by uncooked eggs...the thought of eggs only "warmed" and not cooked make me feel queasy. I'd love to try this though. Maybe I could do this on the stove and just "cook" it a bit longer to keep them from scrambling...but still have them more then just a few minutes in the micro???? Any thoughts on this? Not trying to be a Ninny...I just really, really get wigged out by poached or drippy eggs. :/

I know, I try really hard not to think about it. The only thing I have thought of is buying egg beaters because they are pastuerized and don't have to be cooked (I think.)

I was using the egg beaters when I was really into the egg creams but then I was told that it is really not good to only consume egg whites raw without the yoke. Can't really remember why, but try googling something like "is it safe to consume egg whites raw without the yoke" maybe the info will pop up. Something about it being incomplete can cause a biotin deficiancy???

I thought I would have a problem with the uncooked eggs too but once I made it I was addicted. I think that if you attempt to cook longer it gets lumpy and has a thickness to it. I tried this the second time I made it and I could eat it but the richness of the flavor disappeared.

I woke up late this morning and actually put some whipped cream on top Bad I know....I have been having this every morning for about a week now and my skin has now returned to a healthy glow. Love this stuff

That is what I thought too Deb. My mom is in love with her microwave and will use it before anything else to cook. She cooks her eggs all the time in the microwave. It only takes seconds--30 sec or so--to cook scrambled eggs. I guess it depends on your wattage, but this recipe cooks those eggs. No worries.

they sell egg beaters with the yolks too.

Also has anyone made cream cheese clouds with coconut oil instead of butter? I don't want to burn out on the pudding, but I am LOVING losing weight.

Oh cool! Didn't know they sold them with yolks too!! I will have to look for that.

Don't know about the clouds, but hopefully someone will be able to tell us.

I have been making peanut butter cups with the coconut oil, trying different things too!

Melt 2/3 cup CO, mix with 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1-2 packets truvia. Stir until really blended and pour into muffin pan that has been lined with cupcake liners. Refrigerate and they will harden up. I then keep them stacked in a tupperware dish in the refrigerator. Very yummy!!

They are wonderful with the EVCO--I make them with the coconut oil all the time!!

1 8 oz. cream cheese softened in the microwave
4 TSPS of EVCO
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder-Hershey's
1/2 cup Splenda

Mix it all up and scoop out lovely clouds on foil-put in freezer for a couple hours and you will eat one of the best treats of your life!!

I copied the warm chocolate pudding recipe on a piece of paper-will try it in the next couple days...thanks!

Those clouds have been tweaked so many ways!! But love the EVCO

PUDDING!

I've been on these boards since 2003... and though I rarely post... I do log in from time to time for new recipes... inspiration... etc...
Today I logged on to look for a new recipe and I am SO happy I did.
I found the pudding recipe and after reading the entire thread...just made one for lunch. SO GOOD. It wasn't "thick"... more like a THICK chocolate milk (would like to know how to make it more of a pudding consistency)...but, it was GOOD...and knowing that I just downed 2 EGGS and 2 TBSP of CO, makes it even better!!! I only used one packet of Splenda and it was plenty sweet too.
THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS WONDERFUL RECIPE!

Mine always turn out like a really thick hot chocolate. You just need to play with it each time and find the "sweet spot" with your microwave. I always do 30 seconds, stir then 6 second intervals stirring each time until it is how I like it. It seems like just a few seconds makes the difference between creamy and lumpy!!

AND you can easily triple the batch and store in the fridge. It keeps just fine and I like it cold!

I dislike coconut intensely, but I find Nutiva EVCO not too intense tasting. I just take a tablespoon of it a couple times a day.

I just made pudding for the first time and was so suprised how good it came out. The flavor was rich and chocolatly. I did over cook it a bit and put it back in blender to blend again. Read that somewhere here on the boards and it came out smooth again. I have it chilling in refig...

The only bad thing is it is really high in calories.

Last night I made a version of this......the recipe is so adjustable!
4 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp All Natural Peanut butter (just nuts + salt)
10 drops of vanilla flavored stevia

nuked for 30 secs....stirred till all even and smooth.
Then ladeled 1/2Tbsp portions into the wells of 12 heart shaped/silicone molds...that allows them to pop out in fun heart shapes...melts in your fingers!

Pop them in the lunch bag (it has a frozen cooler thingy in it) perfect treat in the middle of the work day!!!

I add it to my stir-fry the same way I would butter (In addition to! I also use extra-virgin olive oil), and it really enhances the flavor of everything. You can buy it in bulk at places like Costco. It's also great mixed with things like cocoa powder and even chocolate protein powders - the latter makes really good low-carb bonbons.

Mine goes into coffee through the day. Six Americanos, 1tsp in each, there's my 2Tbsp! I can't do the bark or the pudding because I overeat them.

All my life I hated the taste / smell of coconut... I still won't cook with it but coffee now tastes wrong without it!

I've been needing some extra salt lately, so I make a cup of broth in the afternoon and add some coconut oil, trader joe's coconut milk, a tiny bit of splenda and a bit of Sriracha sauce for some "Thai soup." I'm really enjoying it and it takes care of salt and coconut oil needs in one go.

Has anyone tried this pudding on the stovetop? This is the first thing I've seen that's made me miss my microwave since I tossed it about three years ago.

alright, I tried it. so, to answer my own Q, I think it works out okay on the stovetop, but you gotta use very low heat. it was okay, good snack, but still not chocolate cake, iykwim. i just finished eating it, so I'll have to see if it lasts me five hours as PP said, or whether I have side effects (usually I only eat one tablespoon at a time).

I just bought a jar of Spectrum Organic CO, and I was surprised to see that it smells and tastes like nothing. I was imagining a coconut flavor. Is it suppossed to be tasteless?
