Red Velvet Crepe


Popularized in the 1940, red velvet flavor is associated with cocoa and red food coloring. Originally, the red color is due to the chemical reaction of acid in unsweetened bar chocolate and natural (non-alkalized) cocoa powder in conjunction with an acidic liquid (generally buttermilk or sour milk) with an alkali (baking soda), which reveals the red anthocyanin, a water-soluble vacuolar pigments. This crepe is naturally colored and delivers the nutrients of beets and strawberries. I filled the crepe with cottage cheese and topped it with toasted coconut shreds, rasberries, blueberries, a pinch of hemp seeds and a drizzle of dark chocolate syrup.
