2. Drain tofu and squeeze out excess water (cut in half if using 1 lb container).

3. Pour LeafSide’s Vanilla Cinn-sation Smoothie into a blender (with 800+ watts power), but use plant milk (instead of water) & add tofu, orange peel, and turmeric. Blend until smooth.

4. Cover bread in baking dish with all of the batter; mix until well-coated. Sprinkle top with cinnamon. Let sit for 10 minutes & preheat oven to 375.

5. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes; top should be crispy.

 

Other suggested toppings: fruit, nuts, date paste, chia seed jam(bonus recipe), plant-based unsweetened yogurt, nut butter, apple butter, pumpkin butter, cacao nibs.

 

TIP: Easy chia seed jam - Heat 2 cups of fresh or frozen fruit (recommend blueberries, raspberries, or chopped strawberries) over medium heat; use a spoon or masher to mash the fruit to your consistency preference. - Heat through until it's broken down and bubbly. Remove from heat & stir in 1.5 tablespoons date paste, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. - Let sit to gel for 15 minutes. Stir & serve. Refrigerate leftovers in a sealed container for up to 1 week.

The Other Cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of nature’s gifts, with a delicious and inviting scent and satisfying taste, that like other herbs and spices, delivers very high amounts of antioxidants too.

There’s just one catch: the most common form of cinnamon in the US is cassia cinnamon that contains coumarin, a substance that in high amounts, can damage the liver. So be sure to get Ceylon cinnamon that doesn’t deliver coumarin, only the good stuff. At LeafSide we only use Ceylon cinnamon, and only the tastiest organic forms we can find.
