Crepes with Strawberries

Hi Everyone,

It’s another Skinny Bitch Tuesday and today’s recipe is supposed to be crepes with Raspberry Sauce, but you know me I had to change it up just a pinch!

I was excited to try this recipe because I have never make crepes before.  All in all it wasn’t hard, but it took a little time to figure it out.  The recipe calls for one cup almond milk, but I decided to use coconut milk instead.  I don’ t know if the coconut milk was to thick but I had to add 2 tablespoons of milk to thin out the batter.

The flavor of these crepes were mighty delish, very sweet and light!  I liked the coconut milk in it.  I know I need to keep practice to make them perfect, but I don’t think I did to bad for the first time.  The concept of making these is very much like making pancakes and to be honest they tasted like pancakes.  I have no complaints about that!  You know I love my pancakes.  These crepes would have been great for breakfast, but I had mine for dessert!

I decided not to do the raspberry sauce since I made that a while back when I made my Chocolate Espresso Raspberry Pancakes.  I decided on going simple, and went with strawberries.  All I did was take 1 cup of frozen strawberries and microwaved them in 30 second increments.  Mashed with a fork and served warm over the crepes.  I do love my strawberries.  These crepes are my strawberry short-cake version.
