What is a “Egg Yolk Coffee Recipe?”

Egg yolk coffee is just what it sounds like – coffee with egg yolk in the recipe! Incorporating egg yolks into your coffee creates a creamy and rich texture different from a traditional cup of coffee. This Frothy Egg Yolk Coffee recipe combines the velvety texture of egg yolk with the boldness of coffee, which creates a unique and health-conscious twist to your morning routine. It adds nutrient density to your drink and keeps you fuller longer. Plus if you struggle with feeling jittery, the fat in the egg yolk will help curb that. Enjoy this frothy delight while embracing the goodness of balanced blood sugar and the rich flavors in every sip.

Why does my coffee make me feel jittery?

  1. Your coffee is laden with mold & mycotoxins. There are a few reasons that your coffee can make you feel jittery but this is the top reason we see. Most coffees, because of the way they’re processed, have mold and mycotoxins (mold byproduct) in them and that, not the caffeine, is what your body is reacting to. These yucky things are even found in some organic coffees. Choose a coffee that doesn’t have mold or mycotoxins & is specifically brewed to be clean and healthy for you. My favorite is Purity coffee (affiliate link) and you can grab that here!! Use my code LOVEDBYKAIT20 to try it for 20% off your first order!
  2. Your adrenal glands need support. If your body is in fight or flight mode or running on adrenaline, then caffeine is going to affect you negatively. It’s going to give you shakes and make you sweaty, and fulled with anxiety. If you plan to drink caffeine, make sure you are supporting your adrenal glands with a hearty breakfast first (hence the egg yolk!!)
  3. Mineral or nutrient deficiency. Sometimes your body is deficient in vitamins and minerals and it needs to be replenished. Caffeine can drain remaining minerals, so you want to make sure you have a good mineral supplement to curb that loss.

What Ingredients Affect Blood Sugar?

  • Whole fats like coconut oil or MCT oil contain medium-chain triglycerides. Some studies suggest that MCTs may have an impact on blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity.
  • Cinnamon is known for its potential insulin-sensitizing properties. Some research suggests that regular consumption of cinnamon may help improve insulin sensitivity and contribute to better blood sugar control.
  • Low-carb and sugar-free sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit are chosen for their minimal impact on blood sugar levels compared to traditional sugar.

Other Health Benefits of Frothy Egg Yolk Coffee

Egg yolks are a good source of nutrients, including protein, healthy fats, and essential vitamins and minerals. These nutrients, when part of a balanced diet, contribute to overall health & nutrient density. Including protein and healthy fats from the egg yolk in the coffee can help create a more balanced and satiating beverage – keeping you full longer and curbing cravings. 

Frothy Egg Yolk Coffee Recipe


  • 1 cup of freshly brewed black coffee
  • 1 organic, pasture-raised egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or MCT oil
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
  • Sweetener of choice (e.g., stevia, monk fruit) to taste
  • A pinch of sea salt


  1. Brew Your Coffee: Start by brewing a cup of your favorite black coffee. Ensure it’s hot and ready for the next steps.
  2. Separate the Egg Yolk: Carefully separate the egg yolk from the egg white. You can do this by cracking the egg and transferring the yolk back and forth between the shell halves, allowing the egg white to drip into a separate bowl.
  3. Blend the Egg Yolk: Place the egg yolk in a blender. Add coconut oil or MCT oil, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt. Blend until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
  4. Combine with Coffee: Pour the hot brewed coffee into the blender with the egg yolk mixture. Blend again on low speed until the coffee and egg yolk mixture are well combined, creating a frothy and creamy texture.
  5. Sweeten to Taste: Add your preferred sweetener to taste. Keep in mind that sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit are low in calories and may have a minimal impact on blood sugar levels.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Pour the frothy egg yolk coffee into your favorite mug. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top for an extra touch. Sip slowly and savor the rich, frothy goodness.


  • Including cinnamon is optional but may add flavor and potential health benefits, including blood sugar balance.
  • Adjust sweetener quantities based on your preferences and health goals.

While this Frothy Egg Yolk Coffee brings together flavors and potential health benefits, it’s crucial to approach your diet as part of a holistic lifestyle. Make sure to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have certain concerns or conditions.
