One of the nice things about a Vita Mix is that it will heat it's contents. Instead of having the milk separate (I knew that I'd want it) I just put everything in the jar and turned it on for about 4 mins. The egg wasn't at all noticeable in the flavor (I used Eggbeaters). I used a heaping 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and Dutch cocoa. It needed extra Splenda for me. This is a lovely warm treat that has my favorite things, chocolate, coffee and cinnamon! Yummy.
