Healthy Banana Berry Crepes Recipe
I’ve been experimenting and experimenting all week long, trying to find you the coolest and yummiest foods that are budget friendly, healthy, and easy to make. This week’s recipe gets checkmarks for all of those! Crepes. Healthy crepes! Ever walk by a giant glass window and see the guy pouring creamy batter onto a hot griddle, then watch him smother it with Nutella and fill it up with freshly chopped bananas, artistically fold it into a 1/4 circle and drizzle it with honey and top it with powdered sugar?
Oh yes my lovelies…this week I have a gorgeous crepe recipe for you but it ain’t gonna cost you $8.99 or anywhere near that. It’s gonna cost you 83 cents!! And you’re gonna feel like you’re having a guiltless YOLO meal. Nope, not an oxymoron. Ready for the ingredients? Here it is!
1. Mix your dry ingredients together (oats, cinnamon) and blend into a fine powder in a Magic Bullet or regular blender.
2. Then add half a ripe banana, an egg (or 2 egg whites), and almond milk. Blend!
3. Take your batter and pour into a pan on low-medium heat. Just a thin layer!
4. After you see mini bubbles form on top, flip it! If you can flip it in the air – DO IT!!!! It’s exhilarating. This batter will make about 3 crepes about 8″-9″ in diameter!
5. Now fill up your crepe with fresh fruits! I used 4 strawberries and the other half of the banana! Roll it up. You’ll get 3 sleeping puppies that you can pet 🙂
6. Optional – to top, you can add nonfat Greek Yogurt and a honey drizzle!
The whole recipe without the honey and yogurt is only 250 cals with no added sugar, and using all natural ingredients! Nothing crazy here.
I hope you give this recipe a shot and wow your family with it. They won’t even know it’s good for them! Seriously!! If anyone makes this please use the hashtag #cheapcleaneats on Instagram, Twitter, and now…even Facebook! Did you see this?
I had no clue that you can hashtag on basically all social media networks now! Great!! This will make it so easy to find your food and comment on it. And of course for all y’all to find each other too when you’re hashtagging similar topics!
Look at that. It’s beautiful and so so good for you! MMMMM! I’m hungry. Want this now.
Ok go cook, eat well, and enjoy your day! We have a lovely weekend ahead of us. I love seeing your hard work from the #JuneOnFire Calendar – you guys are KILLING it and I am so proud of you! In the comments, will you let me know what I should healthify next?
Thank you and love you!
Ps…Been trying to make healthy bubble milk tea. It’s really hard to sub those tapioca pearls…they have a distinct chew when you bite into them. Trying all sorts of crazy things. Will let you know if I figure anything out!!!

Can you healthify fried buffalo wings with ranch?
That looks amazing!! Does anyone know if the crepe tastes good with the oatmeal stuff because I’ve never used that in crepes.
Do I really need stevia? Could I use something else?
Just use sugar. 🙂 If you don’t usually eat a lot of sugar, it won’t do you any harm. Brown sugar would be best.
I always sub sugar or sweeteners for honey 🙂 so if the recipe calls for one teaspoon of sugar, I use a teaspoon of honey. It works really well!
Which stevia product are you using cassey?
This was so good!
Does anyone know if you can premake this batter and either freeze or refridgerate? I am having a hard time making it in the mornings because I feel like the prep takes too long. Thoughts?
Just made them for dinner, it was super delicious and easy so to make!!!
didn’t have stevia so skipped this part. what a great recipe, thank you Cassey.
I tried making the crepes this morning and I could not get them to turn out! They either crinkled up and turned into a glob when I tried to flip, or they suck to the pan. I tried coating with coconut oil, and even adding a little coconut oil into the pan. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?
Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong? I made the batter, (I doubled the recipe) and put it on the pan.. and it just sat there and wrinkled!! It’s not crepe like consistency, and I don’t understand why.
In order to avoid this, I simply added a bit more milk to make the batter a bit more liquidy and easy to spread around the pan. Crepe batter has to be very liquidy compared to normal pancake batter!
They were delicious!!!!
I left out the stevia and only sweetened them afterwards with a drizzle of honey.
Super healthy – super delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
At this time I am going to do my breakfast, once having my
breakfast coming yet again to read further news.
Hey cassy! 🙂 I love your recipes but the problem is that Im celiac and I can´t eat oats 🙁 Could you hang a video of something healthy without oats please?? Don´t worry if you can´t 😉
HI Marina! I’m celiac too! And all you have to do is take Gluten Free oats. Follow the recipe exactly but then just switch out whole wheat oats with Gluten Free oats. I find that the best brand is Bob’s Red Mill but anything will do! I promise
I added freshly grounded cinnamon and oh man explosion on your taste buds!!
I just tried these and me and my family didn’t really like them but my mum says it’s probably because we’re not used to eating clean, it was really fun trying them though so thank you Cassey!! xx
haha its okay! when you are first starting off eating clean it seems “weird” or not “tasty” but the thing is you have to reset your taste buds! it takes about a month so continue to eat clean and encourage your family too! and soon before you know it, your taste buds will reset to how they were supposed to be which is enjoying healthy, clean good food!!
I just figured out a really great pancake recipe! It’s basically the same recipe as these crepes except I added a bit more sweetener to make it sweeter (my banana wasn’t very ripe either) and I put 1/2 cup of oats, the whole banana in, and a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. In my opinion it is SO GOOD and better than the 2 ingredient pancakes because those taste kinda plain and the inside is never cooked properly for me. So, this recipe is much easier to cook and really easy to flip!! Hope you guys try it out!
what can I use instead of almond milk .. ?
Anything! Reg. milk, any nut milk, soy. Anything w/ that consistency.
Hey does anyone know what I can replace or if I even need stevia and also if i could sub skim milk for almond milk? Thanks a million 🙂
I didn’t add any sweetener or almond milk either, and I just used skimmed milk! I used honey to sweeten on top and the results were just like normal crepes so go ahead! And have fun 🙂
this is way more than 250 calories! Don’t get fooled!
1/3 cup of Oats – 120 cals
1 large Egg – 72 cals
1 medium Banana – 105 cals
1/4 cup of Almond milk -15 cals
4 large Strawberries – 23 cals
Total: 335 calories (Greek yogurt and honey not included)
Great recipe though ! 😉
She says the batter makes about three, so one crepe is less then 335.
It’s half a banana, so yeah its about 280
Your dry oatmeal number is way off and should only be 34 calories. Drop the almond milk to 7 calories for unsweetened and she was spot on with her calculation. Change to egg white option 32 calorie in two egg whites and it is even under the 250 with the whole banana.
Bananas are only 89 calories, and depending on the oats you use they can be 96 calories for 1/3 cup. These are a healthy clean way of making crepes 🙂
Okay, I did something wrong… the batter was so thick but the result was (however I managed that) was really delicious with greek yoghurt and honey *-* Mmmmm… healthy crepes are awesome, THANK YOU Cassey 🙂
Will give it a try again when my mum is not around hehe
Haha! Thought I was the only one who cook when her mom wasn’t around! My mom is super good at cooking, so whenever I cook (I am so bad at it) I feel like she would go ‘this is stupid that’s what you should do…’ ‘I don’t do it like that….’ ‘Aren’t your supposed to add this ingredient first?’ And I would hate that. :/
How many grams of carb, protein, fat, etc?
Best sweet delicious recipe ever! Thank you cassy 🙂 ♥♥♥♥
How many calories are these pancakes?
Do you really think Cassey is going to sit down and calculate the calories just for you? Look up the nutrition facts for all of the ingredients and figure it out yourself.
It says 250 calories without the yogurt and honey.
If a person asks for help, try to help then and keep your “i’m the smartest here and you are all peasants” for yourself.

From the #newbodymakeover Sunday Meal breakdown. I believe this is without the yogurt or honey and for three crepes
this is AMAZING thanks a lot
This is A-MA-ZING, it has a hom-ey warm fall like feeling, it’s so amazing. I fill them with peanut butter and sauteed apples and top off with creamy greek yogurt and honey, amazing.
XD i just made them and mine look like pancakes so funy but it tastes really delicious, thank you for this recipe, love you Cassey ♡
I made these this morning for breakfast and they were amazing! Thanks Cassey!
Are there substitutes for an egg to make the crepes :)?
try flax seed/water.
i couldnt flip it so for me it was more of a scrambled dough ball. but it was still good 🙂
So i just made this and it took me a few tries to get it right, but my third pancake (i can’t really call it a crepe, i think i made my mixture a bit too thick) turned out great! I found spreading a thin layer of peanut butter on top, covering it with slices of fresh banana and then drizzling some honey over the top was the best flavour combination! I tried one with a bit of greek yoghurt but i personally didn’t like how that tasted. Overall it was so easy to make and tasted great, thanks Cassey!
Well i usually LOVE all of your recipes but this one didn’t turn out well for me. I’ve tried your pancake recipes and they were awesome and i make it all the time. But this one was terrible, i had a non stick pan and i’ve put olive oil in and the batter was sticking to the pan soooo much i could not flip it or unstick it from the pan at all. It was a mess. But i dunno, maybe i went wrong somewhere somehow :/
Hi. I really wanna try to make these but are the oats you used an instant oat or just regular oats? like can I use part of an instant oat meal packet? and what do you do with the stevia, do you add it to the dry ingredients or do you sprinkle it over? Thanks so much
instant oats are just regular oats cut thinner so they cook faster, that’s all!
Made these for lunch (my cheeky reward for sweating my butt off) and oooohhh were they amazing! great recipe,so great in fact, that I printed it and sent it to all my friends and family. Love these! <3
hi i am kind of new to cheap clean eats and so far i am loving the ideas, i have tried the 1 ingredient banana ice cream and it was amazing. so i viewed more of your recipes and most of your sweet foods contained stevia. since i don’t have some, i am wondering where you can get that ingredient and if there is an alternative to stevia. i love your videos there are fun and i would appreciate if you reply to this message.
I love eating crepes 🙂
My friend and I tried to make these the other day.. We are sure what went wrong but they didn’t end up being crepes.. It ended up being like a thick oatmeal. However it was still yummy!
What substitutions can be made instead of stevia ? Brown sugar, honey ? And how much of it ?
I’ve done these for breakfast this morning, for my boyfriend and me and we just loved it!! It’s actually better than restaurant’s crepes!!
Thank you Cassy!
Hey Cassey! 😀
Made these today for breakfast for me and my family and they were AMAIZING!! :DD We literally loved them!
I used banana, mango, coconut and honey for the filling (I love the exotic and “summer” taste :P) and it was soooo good! Gonna try them with something in season next time.. Or maybe apple and cinnamon 😉
anyway, loved them like all your other recipes 🙂 thank you for sharing them with us <3
This is the first time making one of your recipes, and it was a simple, 15-minute breakfast dish. Although I spent 2 hours making it because of technical difficulties, burned my hand in the process and a couple of the crepes, this was so good and filling! I only had to have 2 to feel satisfied. I loved it instantly, because it was easy and really simple to make (not too many ingredients or steps!! I didn’t have stevia or almond milk so I substituted with lite milk and brown sugar, but all in all, this was a great dish! Yummy! Thanks for sharing Cassey!
ps. my favourite part about making these was flipping these in the air. SUCH an adrenaline rush haha! 😉
Hi everyone! I just tried the crepes and had an idea that I think you’re gonna like!! 🙂
If by any chance some of you have something at home to transform your milk into foam, just put 1/2 cup of milk with a tsp of honey in the microwave until the honey as melted in the milk. Then put this in the “foam maker” ouh lala!! You can also put stevia or maple sirup… let’s be crazy a little but not to much cause its amazing! It gives you kind of a whipped cream. 🙂 yum yum
Oh maybe with a little bit of cinnamon ! hmm 🙂
By the way the crepes were delicious! 🙂
I tried the crepes this morning and they were FABULOUS! sooo yummy. I added a splash of pure vanilla extract, used a whole egg, and topped it with a drizzle of sugar free syrup. Thanks….. I look forward to trying many more of your recipes to tone up and get more energy! AND yes they were super simple to prepare and make…..maybe 10 minutes? I have been a student of “hot” yoga for several years now, but I am planning to incorporate pilates via your workouts to take me to the next level of strength. p.s. I am 51 next month!
These look AMAZING! I am SO gonna make these! A thousand thanks!
(btw, I live in France, the land of crepes 🙂 )
It works better if you put the cocnut oil INSIDE the batter it never sticks or anything and it makes the whole thing even softer
Interesting idea! How much coconut oil would you put into the batter? =) and I’m guessing you’d melt it first ???
this recipe was so good!
Thank you once again Cassey for such a delicious recipe!! These are now one of my all time favorite breakfast foods. I put strawberries, blackberries and bananas into them and they were perfect.
I just discovered your blog this month and love it! I have been working my butt off with your July calendar and can already see results! I made these crepes for breakfast one Saturday and absolutely loved them! So delicious! I just bought myself a pair of Nike Free Runs and packages of Miracle Noodles! 🙂
I was wondering…could you post the recipes for those three muffins you had on facebook (blueberry, strawberry basil, peanut butter banana) under the “Healthy Breakfast Recipes” part of this blog please!?! 😀 I would really love to make the banana ones this weekend!
Thanks for all of your inspiration!
Thank you so much for sharing amazing recipes!!!! 100% yummee!!!
You are the cutest person ever.
Hi Cassey, love your blog. I was just wondering, could I substitute oats for rice flakes or quinoa flakes as I’m a celiac?
You could use gluten free oats or even a gluten free flour like rice flour or coconut flour. But you might have to change up the amount of liquid you use if you substitute the oats.
Hey Cassey! Great recipe! Could you pretty please make a recipe for spinach artichoke dip? That would be awesome! I was thinking about it and I’m at a loss! <3
I don’t like banana, what other fruits can I use ? :/
cassey said in the video that man can use mango or persimmon instead
Is wonderfull this recipe, I dont know a lot of english but I try of understand and study more english because I like so much you page, I speak spanish.
the videos help me with my routines
I just watched your video on how to make the crepes. You are soooo funny. Seriously, you made my day. Plus I’m really looking forward to making the crepes for breakfast tomorrow!!! Thanks heaps
These look so good, yum! I def need to try – think I’ll make a few and then freeze them to save time 🙂
Hey Cassey! Actually over here in Asia we substitute tapoica pearls with many things. My favourite is white pearls, which is made of a sea plant.
Do watch this to get a better idea. However its in mandarin. Basically they compared the calories of 3 popular low calorie toppings to bubble tea. Basil Seeds, White Pearls and Ai yu Jelly. Tapoica pearls were obviously left out haha. Nobody chooses that nowadays!
What did she use Stevia to?
Love it! I will eat this with my Bikini Booty Raspberry Shake 🙂
I love crepes! I make mine out of tapioca flour, coconut milk and egg so I don’t have the mess of a blender 🙂 And they flip super easy and you can get them nice and thin. These look delicious though!
Just a quick question.. 🙂 can you use cow’s milk in this recipe instead of almond milk? i LOVE almond milk but its really expencive where i live so i don’t usually buy it…
I used regular dairy milk the first time I made them because I didn’t have almond and they turned out great
I use cow milk and they taste great!
Oh my goodness. This is amazing! PLEASE make a video about how to make bubble tea healthier! That is my weakness! The tapioca balls…..AGH. SO GOOD. Keep doing what you’re doing girl! You are such a huge inspiration to me to be happy with my body right now so that when I do lose more weight, I’ll be happier with each pound shed and be comfortable with who I am throughout the whole time! I’ve introduced these healthy alternatives to my friends and family and they love them!! You have already improved my life so much and I’m so much happier now that I’m eating clean and working out! Thank you for really changing my life so much! <3
Sorry if she said it in the video, but what type of oats should you use?
I saw this recipe yesterday and decided to try them for breakfast, I don’t think I’ve ever spent so long looking forward to breakfast before! They were gorgeous!
I used oat milk because I couldn’t find almond, and I had the usual pancake flipping drama where the first one falls to bits, but my 3rd looked perfect! I stacked up all the bits and pieces with strawberry, banana and fat free Greek yoghurt and a slightly less than healthy drizzle of syrup…I’ll be making these again for sure! A much more interesting flavour than regular pancakes!
Oh my goodness, if you manage to create a healthy and yummy alternative to bubble tea, I will love you so much! These crepes are gorgeous and can’t wait to try them out!
I really love healthy crepes! I will definitely try this awesome recipe. BTW, I’ve watched your video tutorial and you’ve made it so easy to do. Thanks a lot! 😀
Cassey! I’m so excited! Tonight I made the wonderful crepes to serve them tomorrow to my boyfriend for date night, and my mom and I both gobbled them up faster than you can say “Bolgilates”! Tomorrow I’m waking up early to make your two ingredient cookies for my moms work and a whole bunch of crepes! I added a little Nutella for the chocolate flavor (which was probably a bad idea) but I was completely in heaven. My mom has been to Paris and even said it was the BEST crepe she’d ever had in her life! Thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much! You are my inspiration!
Cassey, I need healthy brownies (once a month, you know…)! I tried to make some the other day, and they were a total flop. Please make it happen for me!
Cassey never eats chocolate (it makes her sick), so I’ll try to help you out instead. I’ve gone through soooo many healthy brownie recipes…. I first got the idea from Jessica Seinfeld’s cookbook “Deceptively Delicious” which puts vegetable purees into practically any food and still comes out delicious. In her cookbook, I’m pretty sure she uses a spinach puree in her brownies….but you have to let it cool all the way, because that’s when the flavor completely disappears. Now her recipe is still pretty high in sugar, so I recommend using dark chocolate to cut back on some of the sugar (plus it’s good for your heart!) I know Cassey swaps stevia for sugar – you could give that a try always. DON’T use other artificial sweeteners – the side effects of some of the chemicals in Splenda or Sweet’n’Low are actually even worse for you that sugar.
I have also used garbanzo bean puree in brownies and topped it with a chocolate icing that has tofu in it! The tofu takes the place of the butter to make the frosting light and fluffy.
You probably know this, but stay away from those boxes of brownie mix at the store – since you can’t control how much sugar goes in, it’s easy to go overboard. Check out websites like spoonfulofsugarfree.com for TONS of sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free recipes!! I don’t write for that, I just stumbled across it one day because I don’t eat sugar six days a week. But remember, normal brownies once a month will not make you unhealthy. Have one in your YOLO meal!
Hope I helped!!
I have to adjust making these recipes with bananas. No matter what I make – things never keep form, they just ooze and I end up eating sloppy piles – taste ok…
these ones turned out ok actually (i type as I make) a little smaller than I thought, but they’re super tasty.
Cassie! Been dying to try a lot of your recipes, but my religion doesn’t allow me to eat eggs! Tried using flax seeds as a replacement, but it just didn’t work out… it’s too gooey!! Any suggestions, or perhaps some eggless desserts? Thanks!
what religion you’re in? As I know, eggs are sticky. They actually join things together. They make the substance stick to each other. Well replcae it with something.. sticky maybe? Sorry idk
Try applesauce. That is a good replacement for eggs I heard.
I’m vegan, therefore I did it without the egg. I used soy flour mixed with water as a substitute, about a tablespoon of flour blended with 2-3 tablespoons of water.
After you get the hang of it (and burn the first one) they actually turn out real good 🙂
maybe use some sort of meringue?
Hi Cassey – try using chia seeds for the bubble tea. They aren’t as large, but they are chewy. I love the texture in my smoothies in the mornings 🙂
They lookamazing, I am going to try them tomorrow!
These are so good!! Thank you for such a healthy recipe yay!!!! Can’t wait to try the rest of the recipes under cheap clean eats!
Just posted a pic of these on Flickr. So pretty!
Made these this morning for my family for a Father’s Day brunch. What a hit! They were not very flexible and broke a bit if you handled them too roughly, but the ones that held together were so pretty and tasty! I’d definitely make these again!
I made them tonight! i stuffed mine differently but all of them turned out amazing! i made them for both my boyfriend and i! he loved them too!
I posted them on my blog! 🙂
I see a lot of healthy recipes with oats but can’t eat oats. I’ve been trying to find a suitable alternative. Does anyone know of any?
I’m sure you could use something like almond or buckwheat flour, especially for this recipe since the oats are ground up.
Can I use steel cut oats?
Is it only me that really couldn’t get nice looking crepes? I have a non-sticky pancake pan, but they were absolutely sticky to it and they stayed so soft that whenever I (finally) flipped them, they just fell apart! I ate the parts with fruit and low-fat coconut quark, which was amazing but really I don’t know whats going wrong here haha.. I tried adding more and less batter but it didn’t change. Anybody has any tips? Thanks so much in advance! 🙂
Me too 🙁 i made it just now, and it really sticky… Whats wrong here? Any idea?
I followed the recipe exactly except for the almond milk because ther’s no almond milk in my country so i changed it with regular low fat milk. Is that the cause? Any suggestion to exchange almond milk?
I made mine with low fat dairy milk as well and they turned out just fine! I wonder if the stickiness is because you didn’t use an oil or cooking spray beforehand? I know even with my non-stick pans, I have to spritz oil first.
I found my first crepe was too thin and stuck more. then my second was too thick and fell apart as you said. I think that it has to do with the amount of batter used – just kind of experiment?
Also, I found the best results came out when i poured the batter into the middle (like a pancake), then spread it by turning the pan slowly in a circular motion so that it evenly circled out on every side.
I hope that helps!!
1 cup almonds in a food processor til crumbs + 3 cups of water blend in food processor or put all in blender, drain through cheese cloth or metal strainer= almond milk (use ground nuts, in other recipes ( muffins, cookies, or add dried fruit in food processor and form into balls, and refrigerate for a treat (truffle just dip in chocolate or cocoa) refrigerate leftovers.
These look yummy. I have a question though, I actually cannot stand the taste of banana – how strongly can you taste it in these? Can you tell its there? I wanna try them, maybe I’ll just go ahead and have an experiment!
Sophie | An Arrangement of Notes
Hey Sophie! You can barely taste the bananas in the recipe. Here’s a tip: use unripened bananas or barely ripened ones because allt he flavor and aromas come from when the banana turns yellow! Hope I helped… 🙂
Hey Cassey! My almost 2 year old daughter and I ate your delicious crepe recipe yesterday and we loved it!! It was so easy and tasted so healthy 🙂 thanks!
Peace & Happiness,
P.s. i know this may be alarming, but i do not have facebook, twitter, or instagram. So i use this page and my youtube account as my only sources of blogilates info. Lol so its nice seeing you post things on here keeping me and others in the loop.
Hey Cassey! I made these this morning for my mom – they were so good. I made them small so I was able to make four. 🙂 I took a picture for you. She doesn’t like yogurt, but the two on top are covered in strawberry sauce.
So great! But i’d love the recipe of the quesedillas you put on fb some days ago!! Those looked so delish!! 🙂
I would also love to see your healthy quesadilla recipe!
Made these this morning – by far my most favourite recipe I’ve gotten from you, Cassey!!! Thank you!
In Asia, another popular topping alternative to tapioca pearls is aloe vera cubes. They still give you something chew on, but aren’t as chewy. Personally, I like aloe vera bits so much more because it’s healthier, great for the skin, and it tastes sweet! 🙂
Can’t wait to try your healthy version of the Bubble Tea, Cassey <3
I tried to make these today. I couldn’t get them to flip properly, so they didn’t turn out like crepes. But they tasted really good 😀
Hi! I want to make these, but I don’t know what 1 serving is referring to? How much is it in gram, ounce or any other measurement? 🙂
Cassey OMG! These were amazing 🙂 i loved them, my sister loved them and even my dad asked were there more! I’ll be doing more these and then my mom and other sister can taste them too! Love from Finland
Epic Cassey! You need to go make this for your mummy. You need to go make this for your daddy. You need to make this for your family. LOL. XD Haha… LOL… but I have a feeling I will go make this after my exams are over. XD
I am from India and follow your blog religiously, but have never quiet interacted on it. Must tell you.. I LOVE YOU woman 😉 .love your energy is just so infectious and You made PAIN feel so good for me. hehe!
Anyway…a suggestion…how bout substituting tapioca pearls with “basil seeds”. We use that quiet a bit here in India.
woah! you’re an Indian too?!?!? I haven’t seen much Indians being a part of the blogilates community! Its nice to know I’m not the only one 🙂
Haha yess…That was exactly my thought 😉 ..
Cassey deserves all the love from all across 😀 !!
Wow! This is a great recipe. It’s so easy to do. It looks delicious and very healthy. My daughter will definitely enjoy this recipe. Thanks for sharing! 😉
Oh God, I’m definitely having this for breakfast tomorrow. Les crèpes c’est toute ma vie.
Bubble tea!!! One of my favorite, favorite treats! Can’t wait to see what you figure out!
Yayy I hope you figure out a good and healthy substitute for tapioca pearls Cassey! I can try to be healthy as much as possible but bubble tea is something I’ve never been truly able to forego. If you can make it healthy you’d be the star of my life <3 (not that you aren't already!)
Cassey you should make butter biscuits or birthday cake next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For the past 6 months I’ve been trying to lose weight. So far I’ve lost 11 pounds, which I know is very little for that long but my main concern is I’ve hit a huge plateau, as in I haven’t lost weight in like one month and gained 2 pounds!! I think one reason is I’m not eating enough calories, but I’ve had a really hard time finding calorie dense meals that are still healthy. I heard that each meal should be around 400 calories, but mine are usually 250 and then I feel like I have to snack to reach my calorie goal. Any meal ideas? It would really help. For reference I’m 5’4″ and weigh about 128 pounds. Thanks!
Woah woah woah. A few questions first 1) how much are you TRYING to lose. I am 5’4″ as well and am well aware of the goal weights and healthy bmi for women of my height, and you are WELL within them. I started out at 165 lbs and my goal was 125. I have gained a few back since to hit 128, and I am not concerned at ALL. It is literally impossible for me to lose past 125 because it is what I like to call my body’s “happy weight”. The reason you may not be losing any more is because you, too may have hit your body’s happy weight. Going under this weight may not be healthy for your body, and (depending on how much you want to lose) may actually put you in the “underweight” bmi, which is not good for you!!! This may also explain the “slow” loss. As you get closer to a healthy weight (and you ARE a healthy weight), it becomes harder and harder to lose weight. You were already starting just at 11 lbs above a happy weight, so it would indeed take a bit longer to lose any weight from there.
2) Are you working out? Heavy workouts – including Blogilates!! – when you’re already at a healthy bmi will help you to GAIN MUSCLE. Which means that these two pounds you’ve gained probably are healthy muscle weight, and NOT FAT!
My suggestion to you would be to look at yourself in the mirror, take pictures, etc. Give yourself a visual representation of how you look. Chances are if you compare them to pictures from 6 months ago, not only will you look thinner (11 lbs is a LOT on a 5’4″ girl, trust me!!), but you’ll probably notice that despite gaining 2 lbs on the scale, your body looks tighter and leaner and more fit and healthy. Trust me, you’re at a great weight!! Toning is the way to go! And don’t worry if that number climbs when its muscle gain – that’s just you getting STRONGER!!!!
These crepes would be a great addition to a weekend brunch, thanks Cassey, I have a request for a future episode: veggie burgers. I’ve tried a few recipes but have never found anything so good that it kept me from buying the frozen ones at the store. They’re so expensive to buy regularly and I’m sure most of them have weird additives, so if you have a yummy homemade alternative that would be great.
By the way, yesterday’s butt/thigh videos were by thr far the toughest series of the calendar for me.. Without the calendar I would have stopped after 1 or 2 but knowing you put them all together motivated me to finish. Thank you for your work on that particular instrument of torture 😉
Ahhhh that man made me a crepe last year! He is so nice! (It’s at Montmartre in Paris btw)
I suppose you could add some unsweetened cocoa to the crepe batter to make chocolate ones!
Cassey, you are awesome! Your workouts, your recipes…everything you make is so inspiring! Thank you for everything, keep up the amazing work! ^___^
What you should healthify..what about…. bread? :3
Have an awesome day! ^^
Have you tried Ezekiel bread?
Wow! You’re so creative, amazing! Keep up the good work!
Burgers, fries, and milkshakes! My favorite YOLO meal is a bleu cheese burger, truffle fries, and salted caramel milkshake…Do you think you can make that cheap and clean?
Do you know the best egg replacer to make these vegan? Love the idea but I don’t eat eggs!
Hi Julie, I’m vegan so I don’t eat eggs either 🙂
I think a flax “egg” would work well in this recipe, but I would also add a little baking powder (low sodium, if possible) to help make them fluffier. I think I’m going to try these on my next rest day so will report back if it works!
cassey i love this recipe!!!! im gonna try it i cant wait im in love with all your recipes n workout videos thank you so much
Cassey, you mentioned trying to make bubble tea. I’m not really sure what that is. But you mentioned trying to replicate tapioca pearls. The closest thing I can think of is Chia Seeds. They are often used in the vegan community as a way to make pudding. I’ve seen them on the OhSheGlows blog all the time. I hope that helps! You’re crepes look beautiful! I think I would make a banana, cashew or maybe even a coconut cream to put on top of them. (I don’t do yogurt). : )
The only thing is… chia seeds aren’t exactly ‘cheap’ 🙁
