The last recipe of the year is here, and it is definitely a highlight. You need the homemade eggnog I posted this week, and then you blend that with a few ingredients, soak some bread in it, and fry up a delicious French toast. It's definitely a winner on Christmas morning, so practice it this week, and you will impress yourself and your family on Christmas. It's creamy, fluffy, and best if you make it with cinnamon raisin toast. I personally love the Food For Life sprouted grain cinnamon raisin bread for this, but you can use any delicious bread you can find.
Preparation time: 45 minutes (does not include eggnog making time)
Makes 2 servings:
- 1 banana
- 1 cup eggnog (find the recipe here or use a store bought kind)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 4 cinnamon raisin toasts or other bread
- 1 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
- maple syrup
- extra cinnamon
Combine the banana, eggnog, water, cinnamon, arrowroot, and nutmeg in a blender, and blend on high for 30 seconds until creamy.
Pour half the eggnog mix into a shallow dish. Place toast slices on top, then pour the rest of the eggnog mix on top, and spread all over the toasts. Make sure all toasts are equally coated with the eggnog mix. Let soak for 30 minutes.
Take a big pan, add coconut oil, and add the toast slices. Fry for 7 minutes each side. The eggnog mix will start to form a gooey crust on the toasts, while the insides stay nice and soft.
Serve with maple syrup and berries, and sprinkle with extra cinnamon.
I will be taking a little break until January, when I will be back with more delicious recipes, fun exercise videos, and deep diving into health topics. Thank you so much for joining me this year, I had a blast with you. Thank you for all your comments, suggestions, and inspiring me to come up with so much content.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
