Easy to make, fast and delicious, the cream cheese crepes are for sure my favorite dish of the Keto Diet. My husband and I, tried the low carb diet for a little but, after some time, we completely lost track. As any other diet, the Keto diet is not easy or pleasurable to do. You have to be strong enough to give up on bread, cookies and noodles if you are going for the Keto, which is by the way, the hardest of the three low carb diets options.
We decided to stick with the version of 20 g/day of carbs. Can you imagine that? It was torture, since most that you are only allowed to eat are eggs or egg based products. Maybe I just really don’t like eggs, but after two weeks we were like ” No more salad and eggs please”. The good thing is that you can eat as much sausage as you want. However, it is not easy.
I love fruits of every type (with the exception of grapefruit). I grew up in a country full of a variety of fruits, where you won’t see here in the states. So, yes I suffered much when I found out that my options of fruit were limited, if I wanted to keep up with my goal of 20g carbs per day.
Luckily, I discovered this crepe recipe that I love, which I always like to combine with a hot cup of Pero, a zero gram carbohydrate beverage that looks as black as coffee, but tastes truly different. Pero is 100% natural caffeine free, contains no stimulants, it will not elevate heart rate or blood pressure or cause sleeplessness. It’s a Non GMO, no cholesterol, low sodium and no Trans Fat supplement. It’s made of malted barley, chicory and rye, which makes it a good coffee substitute.
But, let’s focus on the crepes. Here are the ingredients:
4 ounces cream cheese
Optional: I like to add 2 tablespoons of honey and believe me this will make your crepes tastes so much better.
Mix all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and add a tablespoon of butter to your Crepe Pan. Yes! I have a pan designed only to make crepes. Heat the griddle and start to pour a half cup of the mixture onto the hot surface. You can move the pan to help it to spread out better. Cook in low temperature until golden and remember to carefully flip it over. My favorite toppings is the traditional cream whipped and strawberries but, you can add whatever tastes better for you. Enjoy!
