Well, maybe not quite the elixir of life, but my favorite daily drink is very nutritious and delicious :)
To make this tasty treat, I gently blend about a cup of raw milk, 1 or 2 ounces of raw cream, 3 or 4 raw egg yolks, and a heaping tablespoon of raw organic unsweetened cocoa powder. I use raw milk and cream from grass-fed Jersey cows. Their natural diet of grass provides the most nutritious milk and cream. Since it's not pasteurized or homogenized, the raw milk still has it's enzymes to help in proper digestion and absorption of the nutrients, as well as a compliment of probiotics - beneficial microbes that also assist in digestion and help to boost the immune system. The lactose in the milk provides plenty of sweetness, so there's no need to add any sweetener. I get the raw eggs from pastured chickens that also provide better nutrition than than factory farmed eggs. I leave out the egg whites because they contain enzyme inhibitors and avidin, a protein that binds to the biotin in the yolk to make it unavailable for digestion. Most of the nutrients are in the egg yolks anyway. I add the cocoa powder mainly for flavor, but it also adds additional minerals like copper, iron, manganese, and magnesium. Adjust the amounts to your own taste and appetite. You can also use fresh or frozen fruit for flavoring instead of the cocoa powder.
The tables below provide an estimate of the nutrients with one cup of milk, 2 ounces of cream, 3 egg yolks, and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. As you can see, it's a powerhouse of nutrition and what you won't see in these tables is the added bonus of enzymes that help to provide greater absorption of the nutrients, as well as probiotics which also assist in digestion and support immune function.

Pasteurized and homogenized factory farm milk is a whole different story. When this milk is fed to calves, they don't thrive and many will die. Not a good sign for our health either.
Stick with natural foods that have been keeping people healthy for ages.
Bon appetit :)
