A beautiful breakfast treat for your sweetheart! Florida strawberries, fresh bananas, and hazelnut spread, rolled up in thin, delicious crepes, topped off with homemade strawberry whipped cream!

I’ve been looking for a reason to share these Strawberry Banana Hazelnut Cream Crepes with you guys.
Not that they require some special occasion to grace your breakfast table, but there’s no more perfect day to make them for someone you love than on Valentine’s Day!
Whiiiiiiich happens to be today.
Welp. I’ve fallen slightly behind here, but if you’re an early riser and are reading this, you can still throw them together before the house wakes up!
My obsession with strawberries has only grown since our big Sunday Supper Live! Tampa excursion.
Before immersing myself in berry wisdom for 48 hours, I just loved them. I’d whine when they were small, or sour, or couldn’t find my favorite brand.
Now that I’m a self-proclaimed strawberry expert, you can find me shooting off at the mouth about calorie counts, hybridization, recipe potential, and all kinds of other facts my unwilling victims usually give me the side-eye about.
Apparently, no one likes a know it all.
I can’t help myself. It’s so much fun to spread knowledge when you’ve experienced such a seemingly common way of life firsthand!
Prior to our trip, I’d never been to a farm, much less a strawberry farm, to see all the work, love, and dedication that goes into every single heart-shaped fruit.
I didn’t know I could eat a pint of them and fulfill my daily requirement of Vitamin C (and then some.)
I had no idea those pretty little white flowers are what become the actual berries, and when they’re picked, they’re only handled once – the moment they’re plucked from the gorgeous plants they called home.
I honestly couldn’t fathom just how many acres of them grow in Plant City, Florida. If you see Fresh From Florida Strawberries on the clamshell at the store, you know they came from that tiny strawberry family town!
(Curious to see what I saw? Follow me on Instagram and scroll back a bit!)
Let’s just say I look at my winter stars a lot differently than I used to. And the gorgeous ones are finally rolling out to stores now that they’ve had some cold weather to plump them up, so I’ve been eating my weight in them!
For example, in my absolute favoritest crepes of all time – these babehs!
Absolute breakfast perfection. Delicate crepes, simple and stuffed full of gooey chocolate-hazelnut spread, fresh banana slices, and shiny strawberries.
And then I went and made strawberry whipped cream just for a little more fun.
I may have gone a tad overboard on how much I used on my own plate.
Trying to get in that daily requirement of fruit, you know. Sacrifices have to be made.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1¼ cups milk
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch salt
- 2 cups strawberries, washed, hulled, & sliced
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- ⅓ cup water
- 1 cup fresh banana, sliced
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 4 ounces hazelnut spread
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 4 Tablespoons pureed strawberries
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Beat until well combined. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
- Heat a 10-12" frying pan over medium-high heat (adjust based on your stove top.) Brush skillet with butter or spray with cooking spray. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle, tilting the pan in a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
- Cook the crepe for about 1 minute, or until the top begins to look dry. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side for about 30 seconds, until brown spots appear on the bottom. Remove to a plate and keep warm, repeating the process with the remaining batter, spraying with more cooking spray as needed.
- Combine strawberries, sugar, and water in a saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce has thickened and slightly reduced. Set aside to cool. Add sliced bananas just before serving.
- Beat cream cheese and hazelnut spread together until smooth and creamy.
- Whip heavy cream with a hand mixer until soft peaks form, then add sugar. Continue to whip to medium peaks before adding pureed strawberries. Mix in on low speed until combined.
- To assemble crepes: Spread Hazelnut Cream on each crepe, then fold in half, and then in quarters. Spoon Strawberry Banana Sauce on top of each crepe, then top with Strawberry Whipped Cream and garnish with a whole berry. Enjoy!
