This lemon vanilla waffle French toast takes two of your favorite breakfast foods and combines them into one delicious way to start the day!
When it comes to milks, yogurt and butter we’re a non-discriminating household.
I seriously love them all, dairy-filled, dairy-alternative and anything else in between, chances are, you can probably find it in my fridge. I draw the line at cheese though. Fake cheese is weird.
Despite loving nut milks for years, I’ll admit, I had my reservations about a dairy-free yogurt the first time I tried it.
Would it be creamy? Would it taste all funky? Would there still be enough protein to fill me up in a serving?
Answers: yes, no, yes. In that order.
Silk dairy free vanilla yogurt alternative is pretty much everything you want and love in yogurt, just minus the dairy.
It’s so good, I’m betting you wouldn’t even know the difference in a blind taste test.
One of my favorite things to do with yogurt besides eating it straight up, is using it in
pancakes and waffles.
Some of my best waffle recipes (like these
cherry oat waffles) are made using yogurt so naturally, I needed to test it out with Silk dairy free yogurt and how they turned out.
Verdict: fluffy, crispy outside, soft inside and perfect.
Instead of stopping there though, why not take two of your favorite breakfast foods and turn them into one meal with a waffle french toast mash up?
Honestly, I’m annoyed at myself for not thinking to do this earlier in life. Waffles + French toast…I mean, is there even a better breakfast out there?
