Welcome to another Man Monday!

So, Sarah and I got to thinking. Rarely do we do recipes where we cater to particular food aversions/preferences/allergies/intolerances/whatever-reason-it-is-you-don't-eat-_____-ies. We have been totally neglecting you guys! Sorry about that. I mean, after-all, you are people too. We thought we would try our hand at some almond milk recipes. After all, some people have issues with dairy.

Take my aunt for example. Side-note, I have more than a dozen aunts, so don't go trying to figure out who I'm talking about... This aunt gets all gassy and smelly after she consumes dairy of any kind. It's disgusting. Yet, if she never consumes lactose, she walks around like a normal person everyday (for the record, I'm purposefully being a little insensitive here... because it's funny). Nobody knows that she is a stink bomb waiting to happen.

On the flip-side, if I couldn't have dairy, it would totally be the end of the world for me. So, with this empathy in mind, I thought to myself, Self, we should make a dairy free recipe, to help all those walking stink-bombs-waiting-to-happen, you know, enjoy normally dairy-ridden dishes, without clearing a room with their flatus, effectively killing all animals smaller than a Chihuahua, and deeply offending their in-laws after they enjoy it. Self, you are so thoughtful! So I jaunted over to Safeway and picked up a few things, including Silk Coconut Almond Milk to throw this stuff together:


This tastes like a dairy recipe should: divine. Spoiler alert - There's no dairy! Not to mention, Sarah came up with an awesome Coconut Cream Sauce that pairs perfectly with it.



Coconut Bread Pudding with Coconut Cream Sauce
Print Recipe
Makes 12 servings
Ingredients:
  • 3 cups bread, roughly chopped into large-ish cubes
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut-almond blend milk (we used the Silk brand) #SilkAlmondBlends
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (from a can)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • non-stick spray
  • Coconut sauce
    • 1/2 cup white sugar
    • 1 Tbsp. flour
    • Pinch of cinnamon
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1/2 cup coconut milk {not lite}
    • 3/4 cup Silk Almond Coconut Milk

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375ยบ.
  2. Apply non-stick spray liberally to a 9x13 pan. Place your bread cubes evenly in the pan.
  3. Whisk your eggs, coconut-almond milk, coconut milk, and sugar together until well blended.
  4. Pour your liquid carefully into the pan with the bread.
  5. Top the bread-pudding evenly with your coconut flakes.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and continue to bake for an additional 10ish minutes. Keep an eye on it to make sure you don't burn the top, just get it nice and golden brown.
  8. While the pudding is baking, make your sauce by combining all of the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and heating on medium heat.
  9. Stir continuously until sauce begins to thicken, but don't let it come to a boil or you will cook the egg.
  10. Pour over the bread pudding while warm and enjoy.
So anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this lovely dish. It tastes great, it's dairy free, and you get all sorts of extra protein and calcium found in milk-alternatives like almond milk. Or, in this case coconut-almond milk. Also, if you're not a coconut fan, but still want to make a dairy free bread pudding, try this recipe and substitute the butter with a good coating of non-stick spray, and substitute the milk with almond milk. Perfect. Be sure to follow Silk on Facebook to keep up with the latest and greatest products! #CollectiveBias

And in case you were wondering, Silk Almond Milk can be found in the dairy section of your local grocery store. Check it out!
