What’s more fun than crepes for dessert? Alex and I love that crepes can be used for savory or sweet recipes. We created our basic crepes into a Grilled Cheese Crepes recipe as a savory option. For sweet, we wanted to highlight summer fruit and make a little lighter option than most desserts. What we came up with was this strawberry crepe recipe! Keep reading for the recipe.

Making strawberry crepe recipes

So, there are all sorts of variations you can do to make a strawberry crepe recipe! Here’s what we did for ours. We were able to nab some local strawberries and peaches last weekend at the farmer’s market. Local strawberries are one of the best things on earth: so sweet and juicy. If you can get ahold of local berries, it’s a must! We also decided to set them off with juicy summer peaches, to provide a contrasting sweet flavor. Of course, you could skip the strawberries and make peach crepes instead, too!

To go with the fruit, we wanted something a little lighter than whipped cream for this strawberry crepe recipe. So we decided to make a honey sweetened yogurt sauce. The taste is fresh and light, perfect for a light dessert or even a breakfast. Of course, a more traditional way to serve them might be with sweetened whipped cream (or yogurt whipped cream or coconut whipped cream), which we also tried and enjoyed!  We’d probably go this route if we were serving them as a more elegant dessert.
