As an alternative, you can substitute the ricotta with low fat cottage cheese, which is equally delicious and nutritious. Because it's also a good source of protein, this dessert will help you feel satisfied for the rest of the evening.
We have used plain flour for the crepes as this will make them flat, if you use self raising flour they will then become fluffy pancakes, which is an option.
This recipe is low fat, low sodium and high protein.
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 cup low fat milk
- 1 egg
- 1 small tub (250g) low fat ricotta cheese
- 2 oranges juiced
- 2 tbsp. sultanas
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 tbsp. cornflour mixed with a little cold water
- Cooking spray
- Sift flour into a mixing bowl. Add egg and milk then whisk until well combined. Set aside in fridge until ready to use. This will relax the batter.
- Squeeze fresh oranges then add to a small pot, you can add the pulp as well. Drizzle in honey and simmer on low heat. After a minute add the cornflour/water mix to the orange juice and stir, this will thicken. Turn off heat and set aside.
- Heat a small-med non stick frypan and place 1/4 of the batter mixture into pan. When you see a bubble or two flip over, when cooked place on plate.
- Mix ricotta and sultanas together in a small bowl and place in between each crepe, then fold over.
- Drizzle the orange sauce over the crepe.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
