As we wrap up our Recipe ReDux sponsored recipe contest “Get Culinary with Coconut Water”, I had to slip in another recipe. I seriously never thought about using coconut water in cooking before this contest and now I can’t stop thinking of ways to use it!
With the weekend here, I figured it was time to switch up our usual Saturday pancake breakfast routine. I decided to wing it and see how coconut water would fare in replacing some of the milk and eggs in this overnight French Toast bake.
Turns out, it works! Not only does coconut water add flavor but it makes for a lighter, less dense and super moist French toast. I went for a tropical flair with the mango and coconut but you could swap in any fruit you like, fresh, frozen or canned. (I actually got the recipe inspiration from our intern’s Overnight French Toast using strawberries and bananas.)
Check out all the yummy and unique Recipe ReDux members’ recipes below featuring Vita Coco unflavored coconut water. Would love to hear if you try out any of them or if you have your own ideas for how to use coconut water in the kitchen!
