Ingredients

  • 12 ounces whipped cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large lime (2 1/2 tablespoons juice + zest)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 ounces whipped topping, defrosted
  • 10 prepared crepes*
  • 6-12 ounces Wish Farms Organic Blackberries
  • 2 limes (optional garnish)
*Crepes can be store-bought or prepared. The recipe below makes 10-12 crepes. Crepe Ingredients:
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • Prepare filling in a large mixing bowl. Beat cream cheese until smooth, add the zest of 1 lime plus 2 1/2 tablespoons juice, add powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping until combined and smooth.
  • To assemble cake; place one crepe on a cake stand or serving plate, evenly spread with approximately 1/3 cup of filling. Repeat process ending with the 10th crepe on top- do not spread with the remaining filling, save it in an air-tight container until serving. Cover the cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or at least 6 hours. When ready to serve, spread the remaining filling over the top of cake, within 1-2 inches of the edge, arrange blackberries over the top. If desired garnish with some lime slices and zest.
For crepes:
  • To prepare crepes combine the eggs, milk, water, butter, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; whisk until combined. Add flour and salt, whisk until smooth. Heat an 8-9 in. non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium-high heat. Pour 1/4 cup batter into the center of pan; swirl to spread evenly. Cook 30 seconds, flip crepe and cook an additional 10 seconds then remove to a platter cool. Continue until batter is gone. (If crepes stick to pan try buttering pan after every few crepes.)
