A Low Calorie, Tropical Taste-Explosion
This tropical twist on french toast, using coconut milk and egg as the soaking mixture (as well as beautiful, vitamin-rich mango and pineapple) will brighten up any morning, whatever the weather.
The egg and coconut mixture is sweetened slightly and then combined with extra grated coconut to add further flavour and texture. The fruit on top is dressed in a little lime juice and zest, which actually emphasise their sweet flavour. It pretty much goes without saying that the combination is perfect and by using Lo-Dough as your bread replacement, you can enjoy all the flavour, but with a huge reduction in calories. Also thanks to Lo-Dough and the various fruits, this dish is also incredibly high in fibre - offering nearly half your daily recommended intake in one meal!
Zingy, bright and with coconut flavour running right the way through, these french toasts will transport you to sun-kissed beaches and far away climes - what a way to start the day!
