Spinach Creeps With Creamy Mushroom Filing

The recipe we’re going to show you is a savoury, paleo friendly crepe. This spinach crepe with a creamy mushroom filling is easy to make, light and nutritious. Although the ingredients are fairly simple, the flavours and texture of this recipe are a match made in heaven for your taste buds.

Great Way to Squeeze in a Serving of Vegetables

With this recipe, it’s very easy to mask the taste and the appearance of the spinach since it’s blended with all the other ingredients to make the crepe. By adding more spices and flavours to the crepe filling, the taste of the spinach in the crepe will almost completely disappear which means you may be able to add more spinach. If you’re having trouble feeding your kids enough fruits and vegetables, finding ways to ‘disguise’ them is certainly helpful.

Making the Perfect Paleo Crepe
Let’s face it, cooking the perfect pancake isn’t easy and unfortunately, it’s even more difficult to make the perfect crepe. Since crepes are significantly thinner than pancakes, it’s very easy to overcook and burn them. Also, crepes are easily ripped as they are being turned over.

Use a Crepe Maker
One of the best ways to cook the perfect crepe is by using a crepe maker. A standard crepe maker will fit on any countertop and is easy to use. The shallow, rounded surface area of the crepe maker will ensure that your crepes are perfectly cylindrical. Additionally, there are a number of temperature options built in the appliance which will give users precise control for perfect results each time.
Most crepe makers are also non-stick. This will help cut down on the use of oil. Using oil while cooking will increase the calories in dishes so lessening it will be beneficial to those who are trying to lose weight. Obviously, it will take a bit of practice to perfect your crepes but we promise you that a crepe maker will be a very useful tool in

 Strawberry Smoothie! 

The smoothie really only comes down to four simple ingredients. First up is half of a medium-sized banana that’s been sliced up. Bananas make for an excellent smoothie ingredient because they are already naturally sweet and they add a depth of creaminess without having to use dairy-based milk or cream. There have been studies conducted that have shown bananas make a great energy source during exercise so that definitely makes them perfect breakfast smoothie ingredient to keep you fueled up throughout your mornings. They provide your body with plenty of potassium, vitamin B6, and fibre as well.

Then, of course, there are the fresh or frozen strawberries. In all honesty, strawberries are probably my favourite fruit to eat. They can be used in so many different ways, ranging from desserts pies, all the way to smoothies like this. The best part is not only are they deliciously sweet, but they are absolutely loaded with great health benefits as well. Many studies have found them to be incredibly beneficial when it comes to lowering inflammation and reducing your risk of heart disease and cancers.


To round out the smoothie and give it a somewhat thick consistency, you’ll also be adding almond butter and milk into the mix. They both add plenty of vitamins and minerals into the mix, as they are after all both made from healthy almonds. The almond butter, in particular, will leave you feeling nice and satiated after the smoothie as it provides your body with enough calories to complement the strawberries and banana due to the fat content.

Optional: Add Goji Berries

One final, but entirely optional ingredient you might like to add to this smoothie are goji berries. They are slightly sweet and provide you with an abundance of antioxidants and other great benefits. The only problem is they can be somewhat hard to find in local supermarkets, especially outside of a powder form. If you have access to fresh goji berries though, definitely consider adding them into the mix.
This smoothie recipe can definitely provide your body with plenty of fuel to keep you energized. The natural sugars found in the fruits help out with that big time without contributing to unwanted weight gain like more refined sugars do. And if you’re pressed for time when it comes to making breakfast but you want something with a little bit more protein, you can, of course, add a scoop or two of to up the protein content significantly.

Use a Single-Serve Blender for More Convenience
Even though this recipe only takes 5 minutes to prepare, using a full-sized blender can extend your preparation time due to the clean-up process. We highly recommend using a smaller blender so that you can use the same jug you blended your smoothie in as your takeaway cup. Zero clean-up required, and you’re out the door in seconds.
