Simple High Protein Egg Drop Soup

Are you tired of all the sweet protein drinks? If so, you HAVE to try this simple high protein egg drop soup recipe. It takes only 5 minutes to make and all you need is a microwave.

The dietitian in me added a little bit of frozen spinach to help boost the iron and fiber content. It also helps to lower the temperature of the hot water, so you can add the chicken soup flavored protein powder to it.

On that note,  if this is your first time using protein powder in your soup, be aware that the temperature of the water needs to be less than 140 F. If the water is above 140 F then the protein powder will become clumpy and unappealing.

I used Unjury Protein Powder because I am personally a fan. There are other one’s out there though that I have not yet tried.

If you are drinking this soup in the early stages you may or may not be able to tolerate the spinach. It’s okay! I understand, but be sure to add it back in once you are tolerating more vegetable. If you are in the soft stage it may be helpful to puree this soup with spinach to tolerate it better.

Modifications for Diet Stage:

Pureed:

  • After preparing, puree in blender

Soft Diet:

  • Serve as is

Regular:

  • Prepare as written, but feel free to add more veggies and garnish with green onion
