A crepe is a thin French pancake made of flour and egg batter.

Drinking low-fat or fat-free milk is an excellent way to obtain calcium, which helps build strong bones and teeth.

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Whisk in the salt, sugar and flours. Cover, set aside for 30 minutes or keep chilled overnight.
  2. In a nonstick 8- to 10-inch skillet, melt about 1/2 teaspoon butter over medium heat. When it foams, pour or ladle in about 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) batter. Lift and swirl the pan so the batter coats the bottom. Replace the pan on the burner and cook just until set and the underside is lightly browned. Using a spatula, flip and cook until the other side is lightly browned. Transfer to a platter. Repeat until the batter is gone.
  3. Fill each crêpe with 1-2 tablespoons vanilla yogurt and diced strawberries to taste. Roll them up and place on a plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
