This is one of my favorites, the Dash Diet French Toast with fresh fruit.It can be made as a lite version, check out the Chef’s tips below.

Ingredients:french toast

1 egg

¼ cup milk

1/8 cup seasonal favorite fruits

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

a dash of vanilla extract

1 tablespoon of white sugar

3 slices of wheat bread



  • Mix milk, egg, sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • Dip bread slices one by one in this mixture till mixture is absorbed.
  • Cook these bread slices in a greased griddle over medium heat till golden on both sides. Serve immediately.

Chef’s Tip to make a Lite version:

To make this recipe more healthful, add 2 egg yolks instead of 1 whole egg.

Light bread – Look for bread with about 45 calories and 2 g fiber per slice — white, wheat… whatever you like best.

Nonstick spray – Mist it over your skillet to keep your stuff from sticking. You don’t need to use much.
