greek yogurt 52 ways: #36 crepes with greek yogurt cream

It's been a long time since I've shared a Greek yogurt recipe for my "Greek Yogurt 52 Ways" project! I think I needed a little break, but I'm looking forward to being more consistent with this, again, until I complete the project.

I came across this recipe last week. I had crepes for the first time in high school. I took French for my foreign language requirement. I can still count to ten and I know how to say hot chocolate amongst other things, but I don't sound nearly as good as I sound in my head. Anyway, my teacher made crepes in class towards the end of the year, and I loved them. I've made crepes a handful of times in my life and I'm thinking I should make them more often.

To make about 8-10 crepes, combine all of the following in a blender and blend until smooth: 1/2 c of water at room temperature, 1 c of milk, 4 eggs, 4 tbsp of melted butter, 1 c of flour, 2 tbsp of sugar, and a pinch of salt. Melt butter on a nonstick pan, pour a bit of batter into the pan and form your crepe. Cook until golden on both sides.

After you've made your crepes, combine 8 oz of cream cheese at room temperature with 1 1/4 c of vanilla, Greek yogurt. Beat until smooth. Spread a layer of Greek yogurt cream onto each crepe and roll or fold the crepe. Top with fruit preserves and/or fruit of your choice. You can add powdered sugar if you'd like, as well.

I'll definitely be making these again. This recipe for crepes was a good one!
