You guys, this is the scrambled egg smoothie I was telling you about.

I honestly didn’t foresee you expressing any interest in an egg-containing smoothie, least of all a scrambled egg-containing smoothie, but you guys just seemed to take to the idea like white on rice. So here she be, folks, drink ‘er up!

This smoothie is really very simple, you’uns. Nothing funky about it at all except for the scrambled egg. Blueberries, banana, frozen grapes, OJ, and almond milk are what wake you up in a real way. I added a dash of cinnamon, because if we’re adding scrambled eggs to things, we may as well add cinnamon too, yes? How’s that for logic?

I’ve been meaning to ask you: have you eaten frozen grapes before? You absolutely should freeze your grapes from now till doomsday, because they make for real good eating. Adding them to smoothies is brilliant because they make the beverage sweet and cold.

I almost named this “The Rise and Shine Smoothie.” Obnoxious? I thought so too.

When I was a kid, my mom would come into my room each morning and say, “Riiiiiise and shiiiiinnnnnnne…” and immediately after I rolled my Raggedy Ann self downstairs, my father would hand me a glass of orange juice and a plate of scrambled eggs and toast. So basically, this smoothie is all of those mornings put in a blender. Minus the toast.

You think I’m off my rocker. I get it. But inspiration for this smoothie came from Better Homes & Gardens’s Blueberry Sunrise Smoothie. What? You thought I was clever enough to come up with the egg idea on my own? I’m flattered and blushing, but it was the masterminds at BHG who done did it first. That doesn’t make me any more on my rocker, but at least it can give you some faith in this smooth move.

Flavor/texture-wise, this bevvie tastes like a blueberry smoothie. You can’t taste the srambled egg, and it has no funky texture. Parents: this is a great way of getting your chill’uns to eat eggs. Add kale, and you’re in the money.

Enjoy your weekend, my friends! And enjoy your scrambled eggs.

    I would feel so much like Rocky, only his eggs were raw. Wouldn’t stop me from humming the theme song. Huh. Stephie was lucky to get a bowl of cold cereal.

    I would have never ever thought to throw scrambled eggs in my smoothie, but you have me intrigued! It would be a great way to add in some extra protein and also a good way to have a complete breakfast on the go 🙂 I’m also obsessed with frozen grapes! I make sure to always have a bag in the freezer!

    Scrambled egg? Okay, okay, I’m going to have to trust you on this one! We always have extra eggs though…Lulu never finished her plate. Now we know what to do with them!

    Wow, I have no words. This smoothie is too beautiful to believe there are scrambled eggs inside! I love that shot of the eggs with the banana and grapes too. Just gorgeous!

    I personally love eating eggs (which is the main reason why I could never be vegan) but I think this is an awesome idea for those who aren’t a fan. And I need to try adding frozen grapes to a smoothie. That sounds deeelicious!

    I’m pretty sure if there is one thing I’ve never thought to put into a smoothie…it’s scrambled eggs. But I am actually SUPER intrigued. Must try!

    This is veeeeeery interesting! I know folks who put raw eggs into their smoothies, but I’ve never heard of adding cooked eggs! I’m far too squeamish (and know far too much about food born illnesses) to add raw egg to my smoothies, but cooked eggs I can get on board with. I pretty much thought I couldn’t get any weirder than adding beans to my smoothies, but hey, there ya go. I’m gonna try this!
