Raw eggs are associated with salmonella, and some sources generally do not recommened them for use in smoothies. Others find the concern minimal as it is generally reported that only 1 in 30,000 eggs has a salmonella problem. Further, eggs from a high quality source are even less likely to contain salmonella. Look for paturized eggs, which are widely regarded as safe. Store bought egg substitutes can also be used.
