  • When selecting strawberries for this recipe, look for firm, ripe berries with a deep red color.
  • When selecting the French bread for this recipe, look for a loaf that is fresh and slightly crusty on the outside.

  • Instead of syrup, use pureed mangoes mixed with honey for a tropical twist. The benefit of this substitution is that the mangoes provide a natural sweetness and flavor to the French toast that is unique and refreshing. Additionally, the honey adds a slight touch of sweetness and helps to bring out the flavor of the mangoes.
  • Instead of butter, use coconut oil for a creamy, coconut flavor. The benefit of this substitution is that coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter and adds a creamy, tropical flavor to the French toast. It also helps to give the French toast a crispier texture.
