Mint Crepe

This crepes are beautiful and really refreshing. I made green mint crepes! The color is so brilliant and attractive. They got their green color from a spinachs I blended with water in a blender. I was a bit insecure at first of doing this crepe with whole wheat flour and brwon sugar because I thought that the soft brown color will affect the outcome of the green one, but it was not a problem because the color turned out successfully. You do not have to make mint pancakes with a green color, but I think that we usually associate that color with mint because of the leave. As you can see, I played with the colors when topping the crepes.
