Très Paris!

We’ve been trying to eat more healthfully, which isn’t always easy when you have the crazy schedule of a law student.  Sometimes, the easy healthy foods get boring, which makes it harder to stick to the plan.  We found these pre-made crepes in the grocery store this week, and I thought JACKPOT!  You can fill crepes with so many wonderful things, and these are only 50 cals each!

Lucky for us, fresh strawberries were on sale this week, too.  So I made the executive decision that strawberry crepes would be a fantastic healthy, delicious, easy dessert!

Ingredients for the best dessert!

 

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: none
Total time: 10 minutes
Servings: 1
Steps
  1. Wash and slice the strawberries and place them in a bowl.
  2. Add a little Splenda or other no-calorie sweetener and stir. It will be better if you can let this sit for a few minutes, but you can use them right away if you’re short on time or just impatient. 🙂
  3. CAREFULLY remove one of the crepes from the package. They’re delicate, so take your time. Place it on a plate.
  4. Add the strawberries to the center of the crepe, like you would add ingredients to a burrito.
  5. Top the strawberries with some lite whipped cream.
  6. Carefully fold the crepe into a burrito, and enjoy!
You can stuff the crepe with just about anything you can think of! Try different types of berries, other fruits, nuts, chocolate syrup, lemon curd (which is AMAZING if you’re not worried about the calories), or whatever else you can think of! You can also use these pre-made crepes for savory dishes, similar to sandwich-style wraps.   Probably my favorite combination for crepes is mixed berries (strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry) with lemon curd… mmm yum!  I hope you enjoy this idea, and please let me know if you come up with any good fillings!  I’d love to try some new ideas!

Fresh strawberries are so beautiful!

 

YUM! I could eat them just like this!

 

Make sure to leave space at the bottom to fold it up.

 

Top with whipped cream... YUM!

 

Filled and folded!
