Before I share this delicious and simple French Toast recipe with you, I want to share with you just how we became family that loves Silk Almondmilk.
When Sophia was diagnosed with a dairy allergy in January of this year, we were all in shock. Here we were with a 3 1/2 year old that consumes dairy every single day and we were all of a sudden supposed to stop that?! I was overwhelmed with just how much dairy was in almost every single food she consumed.
I was nervous that as a pretty picky toddler she would struggle to replace her dairy favorites with dairy alternatives. One of the first brands we tried was Silk. I knew their reputation and I was happy that I could find their products right in the main grocery store where we always shopped!
Once Sophia made the switch to Silk Almondmilk, it didn’t take the whole family long to follow suit. It was much easier to cook with – I didn’t have to make one serving of dairy free versions of meals I made, I just made the whole thing dairy free… which is where the French Toast comes in!
I never knew just how easy French Toast is to make! The girls have always enjoyed the frozen French Toast Sticks you can find at the store, but after Sophia had to go dairy free they were no longer an option. While we were on our Beach Vacation, my Sister-in-Law made French Toast one morning and I discovered just how simple homemade French Toast really was.
Once we got home I started working on perfecting our recipe and I have to say, my Sister-in-Law is a fantastic chef, but my secret ingredient to making my French Toast even better is definitely Silk Almondmilk! Actually, I found that the new Silk Vanilla Almondmilk with Protein and Fiber gives the French Toast an even richer, creamy texture and taste – irresistible!
Are you ready to make your own?! I can’t wait to show you just how easy Homemade French Toast really is!
- ½ Loaf of Bread [I love using thick Texas Toast]
- 1½ cups Silk Almondmilk with Protein and Fiber
- around 2 tbsp. Cinnamon [use as much as you want for flavoring!]
- 3 Eggs
- Fresh Fruit for Topping
- Whisk all your ingredients and pre-heat your pan or skillet on Medium Low to Medium Heat.
- Dunk each slice of bread and generously wet both sides of the bread. Shake off excess in the bowl, then toast on each side for about 2-3 minutes. They're ready when each side is a beautiful golden brown!
Not only do I love that we’re supporting a healthier Sophia – by giving her what her body needs through extra vitamins and minerals like the added benefits of the Protein and Fiber in the new Silk Almondmilk, I love that we’re showing her that she’s not missing out on anything after her allergy diagnosis! Even deliciously simple French Toast!
