Recipe: Blueberry French Toast

Ingredients

  • 1 cup half-and-half or milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 8 (1/2-inch) slices day-old country loaf, or challah bread*
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 cups fresh, washed blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200˚.
  2. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the half-and-half or milk, eggs, brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Pour custard mixture into a shallow bowl.
  3. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for a minute on each side the shake off excess batter.
  4. Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining slices adding additional butter as desired.
  5. Keep French Toast warm by placing on paper towel-lined baking sheet in warm oven.

Recipe: Fresh Fruit Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk*
  • 3 cups fresh seasonal fruit, such as blueberries and peeled peaches
  • 1 cup crushed ice**

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine yogurt, orange juice, soy milk, blueberries, peaches and ice.

*You may use any type of milk you prefer. I like the hint of sweetness and vanilla in the vanilla soy milk. Feel free to add a little honey if you enjoy a sweeter smoothie. **Freeze your blueberries and peaches and there will be no need to add ice.
