Sweet Dessert Crepes

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar and most are dairy free. I have changed my diet to reclaim my health. I know several doctors who told me that changing my diet would not affect my health that much. However, my experience has been a renewal of energy, weight loss, and my labs have improved so much that my doctors have taken me off most of my medications. I feel so much better I have been able to go back to the gym. I currently only do water exercise classes. I can’t wait until my full energy has returned. What a difference this diet has meant for me and my family. My husband and daughter have also lost weight.

My favorite quote is by Abraham Lincoln is: “If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.” I believe the opposite is also true. I believe there is more good in the world than bad. My hope is that in some small way my blog can help make a positive effect on my readers. I hope that somehow, some way I can uplift you and encourage you. I ask my readers to do anonymous acts of random kindness. It doesn’t have to cost money or can be cheap. A couple of examples are, put a quarter in a candy machine, some change in a parking meter that is about to expire, pay for someone’s toll, leave a dollar bill/nice note in a library book for someone to find. Perhaps we can all make someone’s day a little brighter.

My son absolutely adores crepes. Of course, who doesn’t enjoy a crepe every now and then? So I made it my mission to come up with a recipe that would be yummy and delicious. This is my second crepe recipe. This recipe is more for breakfast or dessert. I just used fresh fruit that I had purchased from our local farmer’s market in this recipe. For the peach crepes, I just sliced the peach into slices. I placed a nice amount of sliced peach inside the crepe and then topped it with powdered monk fruit vanilla sugar, whipped cream, and a sprig or two of mint. Feel free to add whatever filling or fruit you like. Would go well with Stabilized Whipped Cream, Lemon Maple SyrupSwedish Vanilla Sauce or warmed maple syrup. Enjoy with Maple Turkey Breakfast Sausage. If you are dairy free try with my Dairy Free Dinner or Dessert Crepes.

8 eggs

1/2 cup water

1 cup milk

1 cup almond milk

1/2 cup cassava flour

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon Powdered Monk Fruit Vanilla Sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon lime zest

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil (inside the batter)

Add all the ingredients to a blender. Blend on high 1 to 2 minutes. Let sit 15 – 20 minutes before using. Place a crepe pan or a medium-sized pan on the stove on medium heat. Add a little coconut oil and make sure the pan is well greased. When the pan is hot pour a small amount batter in the pan and tilt and swirl until the batter has covered the bottom of the pan. Don’t feel bad if the first crepe has to be tossed out. Most people have to toss the first one out. Cook approximately 1 – 2 minutes. Using a spatula flip crepe and cook about 1 minute. Makes approximately 16 crepes depends on the size of your pan. Leftovers can be stored in the blender or a sterilized glass jar with a lid for 3 – 4 days. Then shake let sit 10 minutes and use as directed above.
