Chocolate Strawberry Crepes – without guilt!


The store had a special on strawberries today - and a good find in the produce section as well was a package of Melissa's crepes. I was delighted to find that one crepe contains just 51 calories and a gram of fat. Plus purchasing crepes is a lot easier than making them!

Here is what I made:

Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on a crepe and then microwave for 15 seconds. The chocolate will not be melted fully - but will be melted a little. Add strawberries and then

A little light chocolate whipped cream - about 3 tablespoons per crepe.

Roll up and set on a plate and cut in half. Garnish with more strawberries and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Enjoy!

We did a quick analysis and guess one crepe to ring in at about 222 calories and 9 grams of fat. (1 crepe, 1 tablespoon chocolate morsels, 1/2 cup strawberries, 3 tablespoons chocolate whipped cream, 1/2 tablespoon chocolate syrup)

OH - and here is a kitchen trick. We always keep a large roll (can find this online or in warehouse type stores like BJs and Sam's Club) of plastic wrap on the counter - that makes wrapping all of the cut fruits and salads and vegetables easy in our kitchen!
