Ingredients

½ cupAlmond Butter or Creamy Peanut Butter
1Ripe Avocado
1/2 CupCocoa Powder
1 cupNutritional Supplement (i.e. Ensure) or Milk/Milk Alternative
Whole Wheat Crepes
1 cupWhole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 cupNutritional Supplement or Milk/Milk Alternative
2Eggs
1 tbspButter

Directions

  1. Put your almond butter, ripe avocado, cocoa powder and nutritional supplement into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. If you’re not using a nutritional supplement (which is sweetened) add honey or maple syrup to taste for sweetness.
  3. For the crepes, mix flour, liquid and egg together​ and whisk well to combine. Let it set in the refrigerator if possible for at least 20 minutes.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a little butter to melt and coat the bottom.
  5. Add about a ½ cup of the batter in the pan and immediately swirl around to coat the pan evenly. Cook until the edges start to dry up, about 40 seconds. Peel off and flip to cook the other side for about 10 seconds.
  6. Remove and repeat for more crepes. Use the chocolate pudding as a filling in the crepe and fold or roll up.

Nutrition

  • Are you getting enough? Eating adequate nutrition during and after cancer treatment can help you feel better, manage your weight, and cope with your side effects from treatment. This is sometimes easier said than done. To increase calories and protein, make every bite count by eating better-for-you desserts that include "good" fats from nut butters and avocados. You can also bump up protein and calories by adding a nutritional supplement such as Ensure® to your recipes.  

  • Is your food too bland or salty? You may have a bitter or metallic taste in your mouth or you may find that food has absolutely no taste. Your taste sensations may also change from day to day. This is normal as everyone is affected differently by cancer treatment. A sweeter dish like pudding or applesauce can help tone down a salty or bitter taste. Try to be patient and have fun experimenting with different foods.
