Yummy "Milk Shakes"

What's for Dinner: 3 Bean Hot Dish

At the Sewing Machine: Meghan's 4-h Skirt

On the Scrapbook Table: I dream of scrapbooking again...

We are chicken farmers. Very small-time chicken farmers, but chicken farmers nonetheless. As irony would have it, my children don't like to eat eggs. We're bringing in 8-12 of the tastiest eggs ever laid every single day, and mostly they turn their noses up at any dish primarily consisting of eggs. So I'm forever trying to slip in those delicious protein gems where ever I can. This morning I came up with the yummiest drink. Based on the no-ice cream milk shakes from the Hillbilly Housewife, these are Stumpf Egg Shakes.

Combine in a blender:
1.5 cups cold water
3 eggs
1.5 cups non-fat dry milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon stevia (use additional 1/4 cup sugar if you don't have)
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon liquid lecitin (use a squirt of non-stick cooking spray if you don't have)
16 ice cubes

Blend, blend, blend. This tastes better than a McDonald's Vanilla Shake! And I let the darlings drink it for breakfast which they think is super cool of me!
