I just love the flavor of Vanilla and I was happy to discover a new product called Silken Creations at my local Sunflower Market. It's a starter for smoothies and desserts. I am replacing the eggs and milk in the recipe with this. I used some vegan non-gluten bread I made in this recipe but you can use regular. Just make sure it's stale bread. That always works the best. You can removed the crusts if you wish, but I don't I like them.
