āœ…Ricotta Crepes with SautĆ©ed Strawberries
Servings: 2 (2 crepes per person)
Total Carbs Per Serving: 4.7g
Total Net Carbs Per Serving: 3.7g

Ā¼ C whole milk ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
2 tbsp. swerve
0.25 tsp. cinnamon
0.5 tsp. vanilla extract
4 tsp. butter divided plus 1 tbsp. butter to saute strawberries
1/2 C strawberry halves
Pinch of mace or nutmeg
*2 ounces clotted cream, divided

1. Mix the ricotta, eggs, sweetener, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a bowl until well blended.
2. Melt a teaspoon of butter over medium heat in a small skillet (about 8 inches). Pour 2.5 tablespoons of batter into the skillet and carefully spread it around the bottom. Cook for 1-2 minutes before flipping the crepe over. Cook for another minute before removing from pan. Plate crepe by folding in half or in quarters. Repeat 3 more times.
3. After crepes are done, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add the strawberries and mace. Stirring often, sautƩ berries until they start to soften, about 1-2 minutes.
4. Top the crepes with the sautƩed berries and clotted cream. Enjoy!

šŸ””If you canā€™t find clotted cream in the grocery store or it is too pricey (it is!), then substitute whipped cream or leave it out as it still tastes delicious. Below is a recipe to make a small batch of whipped cream for this dish as an alternative to the clotted cream.

āœ…To make your own whipped cream:
Use an electric mixer and beat 1/4 cup of heavy cream and 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract until cream becomes fluffy (if you start getting lumps stop — are are turning it into butter at this point!). This makes 3 servings so divide appropriately. You can add a little low carb sweetener (about 1 teaspoon) to this but I find the cream is sweet enough. The whipped cream adds 1g of carb/net carbs to the dish per serving.
