Good morning! We started our day off this morning with our first homemade smoothie. We’re custom to pouring a glass of some kind of superfood from the grocery store before leaving for work, but thought since we have the time this morning, we’d customize it a bit.
1/2 C Coconut Milk
A splash of orange juice
1 scoop Super Green Fruit & Veggie
While preparing, I had a drooling partner down at my feet, one of our pups, Keith. I swear in a past life, he was a vegetarian. He LUVS the fruits and veggies we allow him. I didn’t want to leave him out, so we made him and his sister Tina a little smoothie as well : )
2 heaping tablespoons goat’s milk yogurt
1/2 C water
So last night I had intentions of making “wish” tacos (tofu over fish) but pregnancy got the best of me and I was lazy so we ordered in Proto’s ;) so today will be a double down day–up first Vegan French Toast. This stuff was good-like couldn’t tell the difference between it and the real deal, our only downfall was that since it was last minute we couldn’t find a good thick vegan bread at Sunflower this morning but with some prep time I think that would be easily remedied. Again, finding vegan bread isn’t hard but in a pinch this morning thick cut was-so we just used a normal slice bread.
1/2 block firm tofu
1.5 tsp cinnamon
2 TBS agave
1/2 C almond milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBS earth balance coconut spread
Chopped nuts (we used pecans) or sliced almonds
Coconut spread or coconut oil for frying
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy, adding a touch more milk if needed. Dip both sides of bread in batter, dunking just until barely soaked through-remove excess batter and sprinkle with nuts, pressing gently so they stick to battered bread. Fry over medium heat until browned on both sides. Enjoy with earth balance butter, maple syrup or almond butter. [I ate mine w/ ginger syrup, I must be on a ginger kick or something lately]
It srsly tasted exactly the same as “real” French toast and is such an easy quick breakfast. I’d love to try it with my orange/almond French toast recipe–because I like the cruelty free aspects, however am not a huge fan of the soy overload and using tofu…so sort of a toss-up. Do they make an almond based version of tofu?! Hmmm, I’ll search for a recipe and maybe attempt that…
Rwd enjoyed it ;)
