Me again...I learned something that I want to share.

I made this a second time for my family and didn't add eggs. They said it didn't taste as good. So I poured it all back into the Vita Mix and added 2 eggs. The result, my family reported, was much better!

I'm not making this up -- the eggs make a difference! They seemed helped the flavors meld together and added a richer flavor and velvety texture.

I loved this! I have a VitaMix so I tossed in a whole Gala apple. Delicious and nutritious. :-)

This is really really good. The recipe makes large servings but I was ok with it because it's so good and good for you. I love that it has a lot of protein and fiber. I will definitely be making more of these.

Wow this is a really good recipe. Great autumn taste! I'm guessing there are lots of antioxidants in here too so I don't feel as guilty about drinking a lot of it. I added the apple for the extra fiber and didn't have any whipped cream. YUM!

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
