So Delicious Coconut Nog French Toast (and a Giveaway)

I was fortunate enough to receive an sneak peak of the new So Delicious Seasonal Holiday Coconut Milk Beverages. A big thank you to the kind folks at So Delicious! These non dairy beverages come in two flavors- Coconut Nog and Mint Chocolate. MAJOR YUM.

Photo courtesy of  The Laziest Vegans in the World.























Yesterday morning I opened the Coconut Nog to make the French toast recipe that is on the side of the carton. The kids and I poured a little bit in a glass to taste it first. All I can tell you is that we are absolutely gaga over this stuff! And who can blame us? The drink is creamy, dreamy and delicious! And, at the time of writing this they have finished what was left in the carton.
















But, on to the French toast.  I followed the recipe on the package exactly with one small exception. Where it calls for a half teaspoon of cinnamon I added a tablespoon. Not on purpose, but because I just cannot follow a recipe, as written. Ever. I don't know what it is but I am just terrible at following directions.  I guess that is why I seldom cook with a recipe.

This was a big hit with the whole family.  What a deliciously flavorful and festive French toast recipe. While I served mine with maple syrup and cinnamon sugar it would be just as good without it.

I would love to share some of this great product with you. Just leave a comment on this post (please be sure to leave me an email address to contact you) or tweet:
