Place four pieces of bread on a large cutting board. Set aside.

Remove coconut solids and transfer to a stand mixer bowl. Add icing sugar and blend until peaks form.

Berry Stuffed French Toast Assembly

Dip the bottom of each slice of bread into the french toast batter. Place back on a cutting board with the dipped side of the bread facing downward.

Using a knife, spread ~ 1 tbsp (15 mL) of cream cheese onto all four pieces of bread.
