Crepes Batter:



  1. For the crepes batter: Stir the flour, sugar and salt together in a medium bowl. Combine the milk, water, eggs and melted butter in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the flour mixture. Blend just until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender carafe. Let the batter rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, if time allows.
  2. For the filling: Combine the sliced strawberries and 2 tablespoons of honey in a medium bowl. Refrigerate 30 minutes, if time allows.
  3. Beat the drained fresh ricotta with the remaining 3 tablespoons honey, mint and lemon zest in a medium bowl with a wooden spoon until light and smooth.
  4. Heat a nonstick crepe pan or large nonstick saute pan over a medium flame. Spray with the cooking spray. Ladle about 2 ounces of the crepe batter into the center of the pan and swirl. When the center begins to set, flip with a spatula and continue cooking until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining crepe batter (it will make 8 to 10 crepes).
  5. Fill the crepes with the ricotta mixture and roll up. Spoon the strawberries over the crepes. Dust with the confectioners' sugar.
