3. Add 5 egg whites to the mixer and blend until smooth.

4. Depending on the phase or you diet, you can add fruits such as 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup blueberries, or really whatever you feel like having. If you really need to keep your carbohydrates low, just skip the fruits, and, fopr taste, add either 1 teaspoon of Splenda, ground cinnamon or any extract, I love almond and maple extract but this is really up to you.

5. Add non stick cooking spray to a hot non-stick skillet. Once hot pour your mix in it. Don’t overcook them or they will turn dry and rubbery. You want them moist.
