If there was one food I would not want to live without, it would be cheese, I grew up in a family of farmers and my dad was one of those farmers. Milk was essential to our life for nourishment and income and without milk, there would be no cheese. If you were to open my refrigerator, you would find copious amounts of cheese. I guess you can say the same about my freezer!
I had my first experience with flavored ricotta cheese several years ago when I was following a low-carbohydrate diet. I learned to flavor it with extracts and sugar substitute and would eat it for breakfast. I absolutely loved it and when I thought about making these crepes, I remembered making those flavored ricotta cheese blends. Wisconsin Cheese
is an excellent source of protein and calcium not to mention the low fat varieties make it a great choice for those who are watching their diets. Two crepes with a tablespoon of filling and topping are only 204 calories, 27 carbs, 7 grams of fat and 7 grams of protein!
You can make your crepes, topping and filling ahead of time so when it is serving time you don’t have to do much for assembly – or create a crepe bar and create a fun time with your family/guests as they assemble their own. Just give the topping a slight warm up prior to serving.
