Sabroso Saturday: Whole Wheat Chocolate and Banana Crepes Filled with Strawberries and Bananas

by Migdalia

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health!

********************

My boys and I had our first crepes at iHop. They were delicious! However, they were loaded with calories and weren’t very heart healthy. In my quest to get healthier, I believed I had to give them up forever. I was WRONG.

The below recipe, Whole Wheat Chocolate and Banana Crepes Filled with Fresh Strawberries and Bananas, is a healthier alternative to those served elsewhere. The chocolate milk helps your family meet their daily calcium recommendations while also providing them with vitamins A, D, B12, and potassium.  The whole wheat provides fiber and protein. The fruits included inside the crepes and filling are just as important!

The boys aided in the preparation, gobbling them up before I could get photos, so I will update this post with photos before week’s end!

¡Buen Provecho!

 

Whole Wheat Chocolate and Banana Crepes Filled with Fresh Strawberries and Bananas
Serves 4 (2 crepes each) servings

Ingredients:
• 1 cup whole wheat flour
• 2 eggs or 4 egg whites
• 1 ½ cup low fat chocolate milk
• 1 tbsp unsalted butter
• 2 cups strawberries cut into small pieces
• 2 sliced bananas
• 1/2 cup light whipped cream
• Non-stick cooking spray

Preparation:

  1. Place the flour, low fat chocolate milk, one banana, butter and eggs in the blender. Mix well.
  2. Pour ½ cup of batter for each crepe onto skillet or crepe maker, lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Cook 1-2 minutes each side or until golden brown. Place aside.
  3. To make the filling, mix the cut strawberries and sliced bananas in a bowl. Set aside half of this mixture to place inside the crepe and half of the mixture to place on top of the filled crepes.
  4. Place a small portion of the filling in the middle of the crepe. Fold crepe.
  5. On the top of the folded crepe, add light whipped cream than a small portion of the fruit mixture.

    Oh how I love crepes… there is no better filling than strawberries and bananas. I must treat myself to one of theses one of these days. Crepes are delicious and even better alongside a tall glass of leche chocolate!
