Strawberry-Nutella Crepes w/ Honey-Cardamom Yogurt Sauce

I remember when I used to get excited to see a crepe cafe. There’s something that feel special about eating them, especially along with a big cup of good cappuccino! However the cost is too much for something so simple. So, I had to try to make them at home. They came out great and are super simple!

Crepe Batter:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1c milk (I used vanilla soy milk)
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 2/3c flour
  • 2 Tbs melted butter

Yogurt sauce:

  • 1c yogurt
  • 1/4c honey or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom powder

Slice the strawberries and make the yogurt sauce before getting started on the crepes. It will be fast moving from then.

Put all ingredients into blender or mixie and blend till there are no lumps. It will be very thin.

Heat a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Pour a quarter to third cup of batter into one edge of the pan. Quickly tilt the pan in a circular motion so the crepe coats the pan in a very thin layer. Cook for a minute or two until just starting to turn light brown. Flip and cook on the other side for 30 seconds. Flip again and transfer to a place. Spread a small amount of nutella, top with slices strawberries and then fold the crepe over in thirds or fourths for triangle shapes. Top with a little yogurt sauce (or some whipped cream).

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Frappe

OK, the strawberries aren’t exactly chocolate “covered”  but that’s the taste this reminded me of. If you feel like having something chocolatey but not too rich or high in calories, not to mention quick, this is great for satisfying those cravings. (If you don’t mind the calories, go for this one or this :D)

You can see that I spilled it, trying to get a better picture angle. Sigh.

1/2c strawberries, frozen

1/2c ice

1c milk

3 -4 TBS chocolate syrup

(Here is how to make homemade chocolate syrup!)

Blend it all together! How easy is that?
