RASPBERRY N’ CREAM CREPE ROLLUPS
6 egg whites
2 scoops Jamie Eason vanilla Whey Protein Shake, or vanilla whey of choice (you can find it here!)
1/3 cup water (plus additional if needed)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch cinnamon (optional)
1 cup fresh raspberries
3/4 cup unsweetened Greek Yogurt
1 scoop Jamie Eason vanilla Whey Protein Shake, or vanilla whey of choice
3 packets stevia (or your preferred sweetener)
How to Prepare
1. Put whites, protein powder, water, vanilla and cinnamon into a blender. Blend until smooth. (if you don’t have a blender, you can use a whisk but be sure to blend very well until batter is completely smooth).
2. Coat 10’’ skillet (or larger) with non-stick cooking spray and put over medium-high heat.
3. The KEY here is technique!! Pour the batter onto the skillet and swirl all around to cover the bottom of the pan in a very thin layer. After approximately 2 minutes, or once it starts to bubble and bottom is golden brown, flip crepe over and cook for an additional 30-60 seconds or until underside is golden brown. Repeat for remaining 2 crepes. Put crepes onto plate and let cool for a few minutes.
4. While the crepes are cooling, mix the filling by combining Greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, salt, and sweetener in a bowl and mix well until nice and smooth.
5. Divide mixture and spread evenly onto each of the cooled crepes. Next, divide the raspberries and place on top of the filling. Grab one end of the crepe and gently fold and roll firmly with your fingers to create the rollup. Repeat for the remaining 2 crepes. Let sit for a few minutes to set. Enjoy!
Option: sprinkle with some protein powder for a powdered sugar effect
