Breakfast in Bed: Chai Crepes with Whipped Ricotta
Some days are just meant for a more relaxed routine. We've partnered with Tieghan Gerard of Half Baked Harvest to create this amazing breakfast in bed with chai crepes.
One of my very favorite winter weekend activities is breakfast in bed. Winter days are typically dark and cold, so I always find it fun to brighten the day with a super yummy and cozy breakfast enjoyed in the comfort of my bed! I mean, what doesn’t sound awesome about that!?
My go-to weekend breakfast is one of three things, pancakes, waffles, or crepes. Clearly I love a sweet breakfast! If you’ve yet to make homemade crepes, this is the time to start! They are surprisingly easier than you would think and incredibly delicious!
The best part...the filling options are endless! You can stuff them with chocolate, whipped cream, fruit, basically whatever you are feeling. Yes, please!
Today’s crepe recipe is extra special. Meaning it’s one of my favorites...anytime, any season, anywhere, these crepes are simply the best. They are chai flavored crepes with a whipped ricotta cream and topped with an obnoxious amount of fresh citrus, berries and pure maple syrup. The chai in the crepe batter is possibly the coziest thing ever. And the whipped ricotta? Well, that’s basically just perfection all around.
If I’m feeling a little fancy, I’ll even serve my crepes with a glass of champagne. Hey, it’s winter and we all need a little excitement! Hint: This would be the perfect way to let someone know they are special on their birthday.
SO, I’m curious, what’s your ideal way to spend a weekend morning? Mine would be as follows: Make my favorite chai crepes, load them up with all the whipped ricotta and fruit possible, and then drizzle generously with maple syrup. I would then arrange everything nicely on my cute breakfast tray, walk back up stairs, and enjoy a heavenly breakfast in bed...followed by another hour of sleep!
Also, I wouldn’t judge if one day this week you decided to play hooky from work and pretend that it’s the weekend. Sometimes it’s just what’s needed!
