Hi everyone! Just thought I'd show you guys my lastest indulgance! I made these delish crepes from the Sweet Gratitude cookbook. My son says he's never tasted anything as dreamy as these! I can't try them! I'm on day 3 of my 10 day fast. For now I have to just imagine yawning smiley)

Sorry my pic is so big!

well hi! the crepe is made of soaked cashews, lemon juice, agave, salt and water. blend then dehydrate. it dehydrates beautifully! i can't wait to make these after this fast i'm on!
oh and the "icing" is the same ingredients as the crepe with some added vanilla and of course this is not deydrated. this looks like it took a lot of work but it was too easy. the hardest part (as will any dehydration recipe) is the waiting!

hey jodi! do you mean the measurements of the tray? or the crepe? according the the pic they are 14 inches long!!!!!!!!
so in reality they are about 5 inches. i put them in a an excalibur tray 1/2" from the edge...cut them in 4. so the recipe makes 4. are we allowed to post recipes from an "un"cookbook here? i can post the recipe.
i'm a big sweets person so i really needed a dessert book! everything in this book looks sooooooooooo good.

oh and the "frosting" on top is the same ingredients with added vanilla (with less agave..and obviously not dehydrated). i put it in a plastic baggie then cut a tiny slice out of the corner on the bottom and have a pastry bag for drizzling yawning smiley)

Hi Jgunn,

How do you make your crepes. I don't eat nuts, so I'd love your recipe if you don't mind! smiling smiley

i like this one but i leave out the ginger and there is one at Goneraw that ive tried ..they are both good smiling smiley the cream filling in both has nuts but you can substitute that with a whipped coconut filling instead smiling smiley


this ones recipe is from : [community.icontact.com]

Crepes:
4 Bananas
1 Lemon Juiced
1/2 inch cube of raw ginger
1 tsp agave nectar
Blend completely and pour over a teflex sheet into round circles.

Cream:
1/2 cup soaked (overnight) cashews
1 tsp vanilla bean
touch of sweetner (I add 2 pcs of yacon root)
Blend in a high speed blender until creamy. Put aside for 10 minutes or so until it thickens

Fruit:

Assembly:
Lay down crepe and lather with cashew cream. Top with fresh fruit. Roll up tightly. If the cream isn't thickened, it will be difficult to roll...but not impossible.

and the goneraw recipe is here: [www.goneraw.com]

Banana Crepe
Submitted by kandace on October 9, 2006 - 8:17pmbreakfast brunch holiday sweet Dehydrator Blender
Average:
4.625
Average: 4.6 (16 votes)
Servings: Serves 2-4
This is a decadent, delicious Sunday morning treat! Based on a recipe from a video by Alyssa Cohen (I was taking notes while watching, so this may be a bit of a variation).

Ingredients:
5 bananas
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup cashews
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 dash Nama Shoyu
1 teaspoon water, or more for consitency
1 cup blueberries

Preparation:
Start the morning before by making a banana crepe in the dehydrator. Blend 5-6 bananas and then spread the mix on 1 teflex sheet.
Dehydrate 18-24 hours at 95 – 100°.
Take your banana crepe out of the dehydrator and cut (should make about 6-8 crepes).
Blend the nuts, lemon juice, brags and water to make a creme filling.
Put some creme filling in the banana crepe and roll.
Top with blended strawberries. Then, sprinkle with blueberries. A serving is likely 1-2 crepes.
You may want to wait a few minutes before serving to allow the strawberry sauce to soften the banana crepes. The crepes are also really good the next day if you leave it in the refrigerator with the strawberry sauce already on the crepes


and the coconut cream recipe i got off here a discussion here a couple of months ago lol [www.rawfoodsupport.com]

Nice analysis Tamukha!

I just made some raw whipped cream that was fluffy and peaked
using one mature coconut (meat only) run thru my centrifugal juicer
with 1/2 cup of very warm water, yeilding one cup of creamy 'milk',
chilled it in freezer for 10 minutes (with container and mixing
blade) and then whipped.... it holds it's shape well and is
very coconuttysmiling smiley

Mmmveg, I don't have a dehydrator...but these delish looking crepes are making me think I need to remedy that!

I thought you were just an ace pie maker, but your crepes look absolutely amazing too! You have a great touch with food.
