Yeah, yeah yeah….I said it. Low Carb. I am all about balance in life, but unfortunately due to circumstances out of my control I must now watch my carbs because of some health issues.
So that has set me on a new path of cooking. Not entirely new, mind you as lower carb seems to fit lower points when making up a recipe.
I can do without bread during a meal, and to tell the truth I haven’t eaten bread with a meal in years. Yes, I’ve had a sandwich here and there but for just “extra” that doesn’t happen.
I do love my sweets though, and this low carb doesn’t jive with it. I knew I was going to have to come up with some stuff that was healthy but played gave my sweet tooth a fix to be able to cope with this new way of life.
Enter Aldi Sweet Crepini’s.
I made these berry crepes and let me tell you – they are delicious! Super WW friendly at 3 points too!
1 Cup Frozen Mini Blueberries (or regular, I just like using mini’s for this)
1 Cup Diced Strawberries
1/2 Cup Stevia Confectioner’s Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
1/2 Package Crystal Light (yes, it’s all I had – don’t hate!)
Sugar-Free Cool Whip to garnish. I used 4 Tablespoons each on mine which is 2 points blue. The Crepe is 1 point and the berry’s are free!
Method of Preparation:
Combined berries, confectioner’s sugar, and five-spice and Crystal Light in a heavy bottom saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until the confectioner’s sugar is completely melted. Turn heat to low, cover, and cook for 8 minutes giving it a good stir at the 4-minute mark.
Remove from heat and let cool for about 15 minutes.
Layout the 4 crepini’s and spoon equal amounts of berries into each, only on half the crepe. Fold over, then fold corner in, fold again, and fold again to make a nice little package. Top with cool whip and pour some of the left over juice over the crepe. Enjoy!
I made a short TikTok video showing the process if you want a visual:

The first book in the series is called Going Home. Becca, our heroine, returns home after a 25-year absence to reclaim a sentimental family heirloom. She hopes to go in and out unnoticed, especially by the man she’s loved since she was eight years old.
The odds are stacked against Becca, small towns being what they are. Her 25-year-old secret is about to be exposed, and she just might get a second chance at love.
