Low-Carb Egg Cream

My very first job was in an Old-Fashioned Soda shop. I worked there for 4 years, and I knew the recipes like the back of my hand.

One that I did not make very often, but had to explain to customers a lot, was the “New York Egg Cream.” My short description was always, “A fizzy chocolate milk.”

I was looking for a way to use some seltzer that was open in my fridge, but I wanted a flavor other than plain water, and the idea that maybe I could make this sugar-laden drink from my first job into something healthy and delicious came into my mind.

I also wanted to make it dairy free and a fuel pull on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, because I’m extra like that!

Ingredients:

Method:

  • Add all ingredients, except seltzer, to a blender.
  • Blend well. Taste and adjust sweetener because you won’t be able to stir much once you add the seltzer.
  • In a large glass, there will be foam so get a bigger one than you think you need, pour the contents of the blender.
  • Add your seltzer slowly, and lightly mix the contents together with a spoon. Enjoy!

I got the bones for this recipe from a blog, “Counting All Joy”, that used to be around when I began following the Trim Healthy Plan to feed my family but seems to have been shut down now, so I adapted it from memory.

We were gluten free and dairy free at that time, so anything I found that could possibly fit the restrictions we had, and felt like dessert, we were going to try it!

As the phonetic sound of the name implies…this is a “Good E” meal or snack on this plan…I know, funny name right, I thought so too?

It seems sad to call it a recipe when it’s just a pour or two here and then throw in a spoon, but I must share this!

This is a single serve, no special ingredients meal. It is very important that you use FROZEN fruit or it will ruin the effect of this simple meal, in my opinion.

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries

1 Teaspoon Nuts or Seeds

Mix it all together and let the berries get a little melty, and you have something that feels like dessert, and is extremely fast to prepare for one person, or 8 in my house….

I do add a Collagen or Gelatin Tea to this if it is intended as my meal because it is very light on protein. My kids have it with full fat peanut butter drizzled on top as a crossover.
