This is a great drink to have at the beginning of your day. It’s packed with protein for energy, and B vitamins to calm and sustain you. Both and yeast and the molasses are good sources of iron. Adapt the drink to your particular tastes and food persuasions. It’s good throughout pregnancy and during the breastfeeding years as well.
1 cup cow, soy, or rice milk
1 raw egg (optional)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (if the drink gives you gas, start with 1 teaspoon and gradually increase to 1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses (again, start with less
and build up if the taste is strong for you)
1 Tablespoon honey
Blend until frothy and serve in a chilled glass.
This recipe does contain an optional raw egg. According to the American Egg Board, the risk of encountering an egg contaminated with the Salmonella bacteria is extremely rare, only one in 20,000 eggs will have even a trace of it or another bacteria inside. If you are concerned, however, you can make the recipe using an egg substitute, or no egg at all.
