When I saw a recipe challenge on Foodies 100 to create original breakfast recipes using Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk I just had to get involved. Almond Breeze is a milk alternative made from almonds. It contains 60% less calories per serving than skimmed milk, has no added sugar, no cholesterol and is really low in saturated fat so it is also a healthy alternative.
I would be quite happy to have the milk poured over cereal as it actually does taste nice. Unfortunately that is not much of a breakfast recipe and kind of defeats the purpose of creating an original breakfast recipe.I started thinking up ideas and decided to try making raspberry muffins and french toast with the Almond Breeze. They actually turned out very nicely. Here are the recipes
Raspberries are just coming into season. I haven’t had any for a long time, I usually buy strawberries instead. These were so nice I ended up munching on them straight from the packet and it took a lot of will power to save some for the recipe.
The raspberries from a very sweet juice like mixture in the middle of the muffin and you can taste a hint of almond from the almond milk which works nicely. This is how they turned out and I have to say the whole family enjoyed them.
French Toast is one of those things that you can have as a very indulgent breakfast or supper. I normally make mine with just egg but I decided to try adding a bit of almond milk to the mixture. I am sure everyone knows how to make French Toast, but just in case you don’t here is the recipe. This made four slices, you can double the ingredients if you want to make more.
I sprinkled ours with sugar and this was the final result.
