A serving of protein and carbs at every meal is my goal! Carbs and protein work together to minimize my cravings, fuel my workouts, build muscle, balance blood sugar (supported by the Diabetes recommendations here), and help me think better too!
I first became aware of the benefits of eating a serving of carbs and a serving of protein for each meal during my diet phase “Body For Life”. I’m honestly still a HUGE fan of that program. (you can see my Body for Life meal plan here).
What I learned is I need protein to build muscle in bodybuilding, and I need carbs to run. I don’t want to miss out on either of these.
And, studies confirm that a healthy balance of protein and carbohydrates at each meal works synergistically. Meaning, they help our bodies get the most out of the nutrients when you are fueled with both.
So, this recipe does all that and more. A Dessert with benefits!
𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐛𝐬 are from the berries, yogurt, skim milk, and flour.

Are Protein Crepes Low in Carbohydrates?
That depends on what you are including in your recipe. This recipe isn’t because I’ve used some important carb sources. However, if you want a protein crepe that’s ALL protein, check out my 2 ingredient protein crepe recipe here with just protein powder and egg whites. .
What’s the difference between a crepe and a pancake?
When I make pancakes, I like to make them fluffy and hearty. Crepes on the other hand are very thin and pliable, more like a tortilla.
What protein powder do you like for these crepes?
The protein powder in these crepes are not part of the crepe itself. So, it really doesn’t matter what type you use. The protein powder is simply mixed inside the yogurt and used as a filling. I love this for these protein crepes because you KNOW the crepe itself won’t have any weird textures.
I used Optimum Nutrition Vanilla protein powder (and I buy it at Costco). That’s important to know because the calories and macros are different for different protein powders. For example, the Clean Simple Eats powders have more carbs than the Optimum nutrition powder.
