Ready-to-use crêpes make this recipe a snap to put together. I particularly like Melissa’s brand crêpes as they are low in calories and taste as good as homemade. Look for them in the produce section of your local market.
Makes 8 servings
2 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
2 tablespoons granulated sugar substitute (or 3 packets)*
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup light tub-style cream cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar substitute (or 2 packets)*
3/4 light whipped topping, thawed
8 (9-inch) crêpes
Powdered sugar, for garnish
1. Reserve about 8 strawberry slices to use later for garnish. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining strawberries and sweetener.
2. Place the cottage cheese in the bowl of a food processor or blender and process until smooth. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and sweetener. Add the cottage cheese and mix well. Gently fold in the whipped topping.
3. To assemble the crêpes, place 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each crêpe. Top with 1/4 cup strawberries. Fold in half. Sprinkle the tops with the powdered sugar and a strawberry slice or two for garnish.
