Tropical Street Fair Rice Crepes
Made with homemade rice flour, these Gluten Free crepes are tender and light. Filled with a medley of tropical fruit with pineapple, kiwi and mango, they can be served for breakfast, snack or dessert.
To make the rice flour, place uncooked rice in your high-speed blender, coffee grinder or food processor. Cover the blender and grind on highest setting until smooth powder consistency and resembles flour. There should be no larger chunks. Sift if needed. You should have approximately ½ cup rice flour.
In the same blender, mix rice flour, salt, eggs, milk and melted butter until smooth, then strain. Let the mixture sit for at least 30 minutes. Batter should be consistency of thick cream, if needed thin with a little water.
Heat 8-inch non-stick skillet set over medium heat. Brush with oil to lightly coat pan. Pour ¼ cup batter into pan; swirling to coat bottom of pan. Cook for 60 to 90 seconds or until crepe begins to curl around the edges. Flip and cook for an additional 30 to 60 seconds or until set. Repeat with remaining batter, oiling the pan between each batch. Transfer crepes to parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, toss together mango, pineapple, kiwi, lime juice and honey. Let stand for 5 minutes.
To serve, fill each crepe with some of the fruit mixture and dollop of coconut cream. Garnish with lime zest.
Garnish with toasted coconut for an added crunch.
Substitute the suggested fruit medley with your favorite tropical fruit. Add banana, papaya and/or guava.
Substitute coconut whipped cream with plain whipped cream or topping and spike with ½ tsp coconut extract if desired.
