Copycat IHOP Sweet Cream Cheese Crepe Filling

Did I ever tell you how I worked at IHOP for 4 years? Well I did. And I fell in love with crepes. My favorite were the Nutella crepes, but a close second were their Strawberry Banana Danish Crepes. They have a delicious, creamy, slightly sweet, cream cheese filling! Soo yummy!

After working their for a while you start to learn the ins and outs of various "secret" recipes. So of course, I set out to learn this one. It is actually super simple and only 3 ingredients.

I made this on Sunday for breakfast because it was my husband & my anniversary. It's one of our favorites! My one year old loved it too =)

Because I follow the IIFYM diet, I wanted to be able to eat these without messing up my macro count for the day so I will list the original recipe & a slightly more macro friendly one. Use whichever you prefer =) Enjoy!

Ingredients:


  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 3 tbs sour cream 
  • 3 tbs powdered sugar (add more to taste if you want it sweeter)


Directions:

1. Beat softened Cream Cheese & Sour Cream until smooth and creamy.
2. Add 3 tbs powdered sugar (or more to taste).
3. Put 2 tbs mixture into each crepe & roll the crepe up.
4. Serve with strawberries, bananas, & whipped cream.

**For healthier version choose Fat Free Cream Cheese & use 3 TBS Greek Yogurt instead of Sour Cream. You can sub the powdered sugar for a sweetener of your choice (I don't like the taste of Stevia so I still use normal powdered sugar..)



Serving size: 2 TBS, makes 9 servings
Macros per serving: 9.6 g fat, 3.5 g carbs, 2 g protein/ 0 g fat, 6.4 g carbs, 4 g protein ("healthy" version macros) [in picture I didn't use fat free cream cheese. they only have it at Walmart, not my local grocery store so I worked with what I had. Macros using FF Cream Cheese are correct, food coloring was to make the crepe batter pink. Recipe for protein crepes here]
