Make an egg smoothie by blending boiled egg, half and half, and adding optional flavors into a quick high-protein drink. It’s sure to remind you of a delicious warm-weather alternative to eggnog. This smoothie is a nutrient-dense, low-carb, and low-fiber keto carnivore smoothie recipe for breakfast or afternoon snack.
Keto Carnivore Morning Smoothie
With low-carb and high-fat macros, this breakfast smoothie with egg is made for a keto diet but equally useful on many other wellness and fertility diets.
I know egg in a smoothie might sound a bit odd. However, if you already like eggs, it makes a lot of sense. They are a relatively cheap source of protein and easy to find just about anywhere.
My ratios weren’t quite right when I first tested the Carnivore Egg Pudding Recipe. Instead of the firm, custard-like texture, I ended up with a thick creamy drink. My kids and I joked that we were drinking melted ice cream, but really, it was a delicious high-fat vanilla smoothie!
I think this recipe is nice for parents who want to add more nutrient-dense foods to their children’s diet. Eggs and cream are great for developing bodies and minds. By adding a sweetener (as noted below), you’ll make it so delicious they won’t be able to put it down.
If you’re looking for a more hard-core carnivore smoothie, Sebastien Fortier blends liver, egg yolk, and whey. He shares the recipe on Zero Carb Zen. Between the two, there’s an option for everyone.
How to Make a Carnivore Diet Smoothie
As you might expect, making this smoothie with egg is pretty easy. You only need a few ingredients and, if the eggs are already boiled, about 5 minutes to measure and blend the ingredients.
It’s a quick option for the morning or afternoon. Choosing a keto egg smoothie starts the day with a healthy dose of satiating protein and fats and will help you continue to feel full for hours. Alternatively, when the afternoon rolls around, and you want a snack, this smoothie will keep you full until dinner. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
Eggs – Adding eggs to smoothies introduces a high-quality protein and fat source; each large egg contains 5 grams fat and 6 grams protein. (1) Soft-boiled eggs give this smoothie a thicker volume and makes the egg whites more bioavailable and digestible. (2, 3)
Liquid – Any full-fat dairy will blend well with boiled eggs. I favor half-and-half, but you can also substitute with whole raw milk, heavy cream, or yogurt. If you prefer a dairy-free option, use coconut-based food such as coconut cream, coconut milk, or coconut yogurt instead. Do note that coconut is not an animal-based food and, therefore, not technically carnivore.
Flavor – Add a pinch of salt. Then, consider vanilla extract as a fiber-free addition with a deliciously sweet flavor but no carbs. I add one teaspoon, which reduces the eggy taste. If tolerated, a proper sweetener is nice too. Use a keto sweetener, raw honey, or maple syrup. You can mix and match the suggested ingredients based on personal goals and food sensitivities.
Honey and maple are particularly useful if you want to gain weight on carnivore.
- Collagen powder
- Gelatin powder
- Bone broth powder
- MCT oil
It’s an easy 1-2-3 process and then done.
Blend all ingredients
Add all ingredients to the bowl of a blender and blend until smooth.
Taste and adjust
Taste and adjust optional sweetener as needed. If your eggs are medium or hard-boiled, add another splash or two of liquid and thin the smoothie to your liking. Hard-boiled egg in smoothie thickens the texture significantly, so be aware of that while you adjust your ratios accordingly.
Prepare to serve
Divide into two cups and serve immediately. Yum!

Cooked Egg Smoothie FAQ
Yes, you can put raw eggs in a smoothie if you are comfortable. However, I suggest boiled eggs here to thicken the smoothie and make the protein more bioavailable.
There is a nuanced discussion around raw eggs in a smoothie being safe or not. I avoid the issue by using cooked eggs. However, from personal experience with fresh eggs from a quality source and my own backyard chickens, they have never caused a problem. If you choose to add raw eggs, make quality and freshness as a priority when purchasing. Furthermore, examine both sides of the argument and conclude if the potential risk is worth the benefit.
Vanilla and optional sweetener smooths and enhances the flavor, so you get the creamy egg yolk flavor, but it isn’t overpowering. The egg flavor becomes more pronounced if you omit one or two of those ingredients.
Yes! With the simple adjustment of adding ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon and ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg to the blender, you can make a delicious eggnog smoothie.

4 thoughts on “Egg Smoothie (Carnivore Smoothie)”
Can you refrigerate it?
You sure can refrigerate this! I would expect the drink to thicken a bit upon chilling. Likely best eaten within three days.
I boil a batch of eggs every week for easy snacking. I love mixing things up with this smoothie and it’s that much easier to make with the eggs all ready to go.
Since you already like eggs for snacking, I think you’ll like this pickled egg recipe too!
