Why We Love Crepes
Monday nights around our house is our dessert night. This last week we made Dessert Taco’s. That’s what my kids call them. But simply dessert tacos for us is Crepes and fruit. I love Crepes because you can literally pack them full of good stuff like strawberries and blueberries like we’ve done. Warning… these are messy to eat. So let your kids go outside with them and drip yogurt and strawberries all over themselves, and then hose them down.
We also eat crepes for dinner! These lemon chicken parmesan crepes are our favorite! So make extra crepes, and then you can also eat them for dessert, or dessert the next day.

- For the filling we used plain, greek, or vanilla yogurt and berries. You could also use some creamy coconut frosting! For that we used: 1 can of coconut milk (the full fat kind, set in the fridge to chill and solidify overnight). When you open the can, it should be solid. If it’s not solid, this may not work. Scoop out solid coconut milk into a mixer and add 1/4 cup raw, organic sugar and 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract. Whip until fluffy.
