Now tell me, how can you resist strawberries and cream cheese? I can’t! When I figured out the crepe recipe with Carbquik (purchase on http://www.amazon.com or http://www.netrition.com) I had to make this. I just had to! YUM!!! And, at 7.5 net carbs, well that’s breakfast!
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
Extra butter (about a tablespoon to cook crepes)
2 1/2 tbsp So Delicious Vanilla Unsweet Coconut Milk
2 squirts liquid Splenda (or two packets powdered)
1 tbsp vanilla
4 tbsp Carbquik
1 tbsp Isopure Creamy Vanilla Zero Carb protein powder
2 medium strawberries, sliced thin
2 tbsp whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup (or less) Sugar Free pancake syrup (I used Hungry Jack)
First mix egg, melted butter, milk, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla, Carbquik and protein powder in blender or processor (I use Ninja) until batter forms.
Heat a 10-inch skillet and melt a teaspoon of butter.
Pour in just enough batter to coat your pan and allow to cook on one side until done, flip, cook on other side.
**while this is cooking, slice your strawberries
Remove crepe and repeat process.
Take each crepe and spread 1 tbsp cream cheese in the middle. Line sliced strawberries. Fold over to make a “burrito” look. 🙂
Place both on plate and top with sf syrup. This would be WONDERFUL with some sugar free whipped cream (Land O Lakes has some great zero carb that is wonderful) also.
Net Carbs: 7.5
So, I decided to get inventive for the filling. 🙂 Instead of the plain sliced strawberries, I diced two of them and a few blackberries, added a bit of splenda and made a “compote”. That, I put in the filing with the cream cheese of the crepe…top with SF syrup and SF whipped cream…OMG! Delish! I think that takes the carbs up to about 9 net, depending on how much fruit you use. Here is the pic…isn’t that yummy….it sure was!! 🙂
