Jason and I snuck away for a few days of relaxation at the beach. I spent Saturday making my protein cookie haunted house and catching up on important magazine reading, while Jason brought his mobile music studio and is working on music.

Yesterday we went into town and walked along the bay front – visiting all the places I enjoyed as a kid! This morning we walked around the marina early – foggy, rainy and stormy, and now we are cozy inside – just what we wanted.

While I am gone I have a delicious giveaway for a couple of my readers…

The holiday flavors of So Delicious Coconut Milk are available again, and in addition to Nog and Chocolate Mint, there is a new flavor this year, Pumpkin Spice.

In addition to having amazing flavor, they are low in fat and sugar, are made with organic, non-GMO verified coconuts, and are soy-free, gluten-free, and vegan. But did I tell you they all taste amazing?

They also make awesome vegan french toast…

pumpkin spice french toast

dairy, egg and gluten free, vegan

makes six pieces

1/2 (6 ounce) container silken tofu
1/3 cup pumpkin spice coconut milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or vanilla
6 pieces your favorite gluten free bread

Combine all ingredients in food processor. Thin with more liquid as necessary (silken tofu varies in consistency). Pour into shallow bowl, dip bread pieces into batter and cook on a griddle over medium heat, a minute or two on each side, until cooked through and golden.

The folks at So Delicious offered to give some VIP coupons to a couple of my readers, just in time for the start of the holidays. Make some french toast with some of it, will you?

My favorite holiday beverage is sparkling apple cider. You know, the one that comes in the fancy bottles :)

(French toast looks delicious by the way. I’ve never tried a vegan version before. In your opinion, does it taste similar?)

Ooooh, I want that coconut milk and that Pumpkin Spice French Toast!! It’s early, but you’ve gotten my taste buds going big time. 😉 Must seek out this So Coconut milk. I’ve never even had their Nog yet, but I know folks love it.

Enjoy your time away, dear! xo,

I soooo want to try the coconut varieties of the holiday flavors! They sound amazing! That French toast looks like a perfect way to celebrate holiday favorites! YUM!


4 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) October 30, 2012 at 5:06 am

Pumpkin spice would definitely be my choice of flavors…I LOVE pumpkin!


5 Heather (Where's the Beach) October 30, 2012 at 5:25 am

Enjoy your trip! And I must make this recipe. I don’t know that I have a fave holiday beverage. I know most people choose egg nog but I never cared for it. Well….I did figure out that I liked the silk version. And it works well as a cocktail 😉


6 Heather (Where's the Beach) October 30, 2012 at 5:26 am

I would probably make this recipe AND drink them too!


7 Heather (Where's the Beach) October 30, 2012 at 5:26 am

Annnndddd I’m tweeting 😉


8 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table October 30, 2012 at 6:00 am

How cool that you used tofu here I’d made vegan french toast before with peanut flour, but I bet the tofu does more for the eggy texture. Can’t wait to try this one too!


9 moonsword October 30, 2012 at 6:00 am

Favorite holiday nip…Kahlua Peppermint Mocha and hot cocoa. :)


10 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat October 30, 2012 at 6:20 am

Love the silken tofu idea! My favorite holiday beverage is flavored coffee!


11 moonsword October 30, 2012 at 6:21 am

I’d like to try the pumpkin spice coconut milk in your french toast recipe, and also in pancakes and oatmeal and chocolate pudding. :)


12 Marya@parttimehealthnut.com October 30, 2012 at 6:38 am

The weather is finally turning cold here in VA and I’m instantly craving holiday drinks! Funny how that works. My favorite holiday drink is hot chocolate with Baileys Irish Cream (this year I’ll experiment with a vegan recipe). If I won, I’d make the chocolate mint coconut milk into hot chocolate. Yum!


13 Chef Amber Shea October 30, 2012 at 7:05 am

I’m an eggnog girl!


14 Chef Amber Shea October 30, 2012 at 7:06 am

Last year I made eggnog cupcakes with the SoDelicious nog…I might have to do that again. 😉


15 Chef Amber Shea October 30, 2012 at 7:06 am

I tweeted – @chefambershea


16 Emily October 30, 2012 at 8:08 am

I’m an eggnog girl (with a little rum, if I’m feeling feisty) girl. I also can’t get enough hot chocolate with mini marshmallows!


17 Emily October 30, 2012 at 8:09 am

I think I’d use the Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk in my oats! or Possibly in some Chai tea?


18 lynn @ the actor's diet October 30, 2012 at 8:11 am

yum – i’d definitely try baking with them!


19 Steph@stephsbitebybite October 30, 2012 at 8:21 am

Oh my goodness! These are totally calling my name!!


20 Ashley F. October 30, 2012 at 8:51 am

I am juicing right now, so looking at this is a special form of torture – but I just can’t help myself, that french toast looks so dang good!

My favorite holiday drink is definitely the chocolate peppermint soy milk by West Soy!


21 Ashley F. October 30, 2012 at 8:53 am

If I won I would probably just drink them straight up – holiday beverages are something to savor with a big ol’ cookie (sugar cookie, obviously).


22 Allie October 30, 2012 at 11:16 am

Eggnog is definitely my favorite holiday drink! Well, the dairy-free versions, that is. And perhaps with a splash of rum tossed in…


23 Allie October 30, 2012 at 11:17 am

And I’d drink them…mostly. But definitely whip up some french toast–oooh, or some eggnog pancakes!


24 gretchen October 30, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Favorite holiday drink – peppermint hot cocoa!


25 gretchen October 30, 2012 at 12:22 pm

What would I do with the nog? I just saw a vegan nog cheesecake recipe that I might have to hit…


26 Shannon Roche October 30, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I LOVE their coconut nog. I haven’t tried the pumpkin spice yet, but I don’t know if it can stand up against the nog?!


27 Heather @ Better With Veggies October 30, 2012 at 2:58 pm

I honestly just want to drink that new flavor, but I think I could also save some for that yummy french toast. I think I should make french toast on weekend mornings more often. :)


28 Macey October 30, 2012 at 6:45 pm

I’m foaming at the mouth right now. This looks SO GOOD! My favorite holiday beverages are ANYTHING pumpkin and caramel apple cider!


29 Jordan October 30, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I love Silk mint chocolate and Rice Nog, but I’m dying to try out SoDelicious’ holiday drinks! Thanks for the giveaway :)


30 Jordan October 30, 2012 at 7:58 pm

I would probably just drink these flavors straight up, or use them as coffee creamer!


31 Jordan October 30, 2012 at 7:59 pm
32 Emily October 30, 2012 at 9:52 pm

My favorite holiday beverages are hot apple cider, peppermint tea, and coffee with vegan pumpkin creamer- So delicious! (Pun very much intended…)



33 Emily October 30, 2012 at 9:56 pm

The first thing I would make is definitely a cup of coffee…
and then this french toast! Yum!


34 Gina @ Health, Love, and Chocolate October 30, 2012 at 11:47 pm

Homemade hot cocoa!


35 Nikki October 30, 2012 at 11:55 pm

my favorite holiday drink is definitely apple cider!!


36 Nikki October 30, 2012 at 11:56 pm

I would try this recipe and maybe pancakes, and drink it too


37 Jordyn October 31, 2012 at 6:13 am

I would have to at least try them plain to get a sense of what it tastes like. I might also try it as a sub in my coffee as well. YUM!


38 Jordyn October 31, 2012 at 6:14 am

My favorite holiday beverage is hot mulled cider. Or maybe hot chocolate with some vegan bailey’s…. So good on a cold night!


39 bitt October 31, 2012 at 10:06 am

Mmm yum. I have actually never tried their pumpkin spice nog. I would probably make a smoothie with it. Or just drink it. Or dip cookies into it!

My favorite holiday drink is chai.


40 bitt October 31, 2012 at 10:08 am

oops it was supposed to be two entries. favorite drink is chai.


41 Yvonne October 31, 2012 at 11:29 am

Indian chai tea is my favorite holiday drink – so rich sweet and spicy.


42 Yvonne October 31, 2012 at 11:30 am

With the pumpkin spice nog I would defenitely make pancakes and scones.


43 Barb October 31, 2012 at 3:34 pm

favorite holiday drink is apple cider


44 Barb October 31, 2012 at 3:35 pm

i would try scones with it


45 Mara October 31, 2012 at 8:35 pm

My favorite holiday drink is the Nog – hands down!


46 Alexis @ Hummusapien November 1, 2012 at 6:05 am

OMG that looks fab! I NEED to buy that pumpkin coconut milk. Where do you purchase your silken tofu these days? My Whole Foods no longer carries it…bummer!


47 spabettie November 3, 2012 at 2:53 pm

hi Alexis – its funny you say that about silken tofu! I use it a lot, and the last two times I tried to find it I couldn’t… the first time I just assumed they were out, the second I asked for it and it had been moved! it was in the middle of the store, dry goods (I used to find it in the cold area with the rest of the tofu…) perhaps they just moved it somewhere else? seems weird they would just stop carrying it, right?
