Orange Pumpkin French Toast

ORANGE-PUMPKIN FRENCH TOAST

Since going vegan, it’s been hard to find a French toast recipe that I enjoyed, so I came up with my own. A fellow vegan blogger tipped me onto using ciabatta bread and it works best. If you don’t have orange extract on hand, use the zest of one orange and one tablespoon of the juice, or just leave it out.

Eighty Percent Raw - The Great Blend Off

The Great Blend Off

I heard back from Kelli at Blendtec. They are sending me one of their blenders so that I can do a side-by-side review of their brand compared to Vitamix.

Now, I must confess, I got along just fine as a high-raw foodist for over 3 years using my steady-Freddy Oster. But that was long after I had already blown out my first Vitamix.
