Stop Looking at Me Swan

Haha sorry, I’m watching Billy Madison. Such a good movie!

I’m so glad I went on a shell baking frenzy last weekend- it made dinner tonight super easy. I just popped a dish of the frozen shells in the oven for an hour and forgot about it until delicious smells started filling the house.

It’s about as close to having someone cook for me as I’m gonna get. 😉 I definitely love the addition of the Neufchatel cheese- it makes the filling so creamy and rich-tasting without sitting heavy in your stomach.

Since dinner was a cinch, I had time to some experimenting in the kitchen for dessert, and boy was I ever happy with the outcome. Best dessert of the year. (Ok, that’d be more impressive if it wasn’t January.)

Blueberry Cream Crepes!

Crepes

1/4 cup buckwheat flour

1/4 cup all purpose flour

1 small container fat free yogurt

1/8 cup egg substitute

1/8 cup almond milk

cinnamon

splash of agave nectar (optional), but recommend if using buckwheat flour)

Mix ingredients together. Refrigerate for 1 hour. (Let’s bubbles dissipate and prevents tearing when you cook them!)

Filling

1 small container vanilla Greek yogurt (I used Oikos)

cinnamon & agave nectar to taste

Topping

Fresh blueberries (I had a little less than a 1/2 pint- would work with frozen too)

1 T sugar (the real deal here;))

1 t agave nectar

1 t cornstarch

splash of water (I actually used Crystal light lemonade just because I had it)

orange zest

 

Heat topping ingredients in small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. I smashed up the blueberries a little with the spoon once they had heated up. Simmer over low heat while you prepare crepes.

To make crepes, spoon small amount of batter in small pan. Be sure to coat well with non-stick spray, butter, etc. Use back of spoon in a circular motion to spread batter thinly. Cook 1 minute, flip, cook 1-2 more minutes. Set aside on paper towel. Makes about 4 crepes.

Spread filling down center of each crepe. Wrap crepe around filling. (Use an extra dab of yogurt to help hold crepe closed.)

Top each crepe with blueberry mixture. (I went heavy on the topping and only had enough for 2 crepes…it was good without it too.) Top with a little more orange zest and cinnamon. (Optional).

(The blueberry mixture itself would be awesome over ice cream.)

Eat like there’s no tomorrow.

Seriously.

Amazingly good. Proof dessert can be healthy.

My only wish: I had more blueberries to make it again tomorrow 🙂

 

Hope you all enjoyed your Saturday!
