Yes, you can make healthy blintzes...at least, healthier than the traditional ones. Here's how I did it:

1. I strained a quart of lowfat yogurt with cheesecloth to make yogurt-cheese. This imitates the texture and flavor of cream cheese and makes the filling nice and thick.

2. I mixed up crepe batter using 1 1/4 cup milk, 1 cup flour (half white spelt, half whole spelt), one egg and a little salt. I brushed a Calphalon skillet with safflower oil and fried up a bunch of crepes.

3. To make the filling, I used half yogurt cheese and half lowfat cottage cheese. I added sugar, vanilla and lemon juice to taste. I scooped a generous amount of filling into the crepes, closed them up, and slathered them with berry sauce (leftover from the Ricotta Cake adventure).

Anyway, mom was really happy about the blintzes, and so was I.
