- Mango Filling
- 3 ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
- 1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp instant coffee powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Step 1: Make the Mango Filling
In a mixing bowl, combine the diced mangoes, honey, and lemon juice. Mix well until everything is evenly distributed. Set the bowl aside while you work on the crepes.
Step 2: Make the Crepe Batter
In a blender combine coffee powder, cinnamon, salt, egg, milk, water, all-purpose flour and a melted coconut oil (or butter) to make thin pancake-like batter.
Step 3: Cook crepes
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat (use stove with non-stick grill if you like grill marks on your crepes). Take some batter and spread evenly around the pan by tilting it every which way then let it cook about two minutes per side on medium-high heat until done (thin crispy brown edges with light delicate center) .
Step 4: Stuff Your Crepes
Once your crepes are all cooked up in the size you like roll them then add that mango filling. You can spoon the filling along the center of the crepe, then fold both sides over it. You can also add some fresh blueberries to complement the mangoes.
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!
These mango espresso crepes are perfect for breakfast or dessert. You can sprinkle them with some powdered sugar, add a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, drizzle with caramel sauce, chocolate sauce or a Guinness cream, your choice.

Tips for Perfect Results:
- Use a non-stick skillet to ensure the crepes don’t stick

Substitutions and Variations
Now that you’ve got the basic recipe down for these stunning mango espresso crepes, it’s time to get adventurous and experiment with substitutions and variations to make this dish even more delectable.
For those looking for a vegan option, simply swap out the egg in the crepe batter for one tablespoon of honey mixed with two tablespoons of applesauce. This will keep your crepes light and delicate while still maintaining their supposed crispy texture. Additionally, soy or almond milk can be used instead of regular milk.
For a twist on the mango filling, try switching things up by adding blueberries or papaya to create a blueberry mango or mango papaya brown butter cinnamon crepe, respectively.
For coffee lovers, experiment with instant coffee powder ratios in the crepe batter to give it an extra kick of caffeine. You can also mix in different spices like cinnamon or cocoa powder to give your espresso crepes a delectable twist.
If you’re short on time or don’t feel like making the crepes from scratch, skip the step where you make the crepes and use pre-made ones instead.
Finally, if you have leftovers, consider folding your crepes into a crepe suzette with ice cream and caramel sauce or stacking them for a classic French pancake – Crepe Cake!

The best thing about this recipe is that it allows for unlimited serving and pairing possibilities. For the filling, we used a fresh mango filling with a dash of honey and lemon juice, which provides the perfect balance of tart and sweet flavors. However, another excellent option is to use a blueberry mango or mango papaya brown butter cinnamon filling.
You can serve these crepes for breakfast garnished with fresh fruit or topped with whipped cream or ice cream for dessert. The infused espresso adds an aromatic touch that makes it a delicious dessert by itself. You will not want to miss this excellent pairing option: Guinness cream caramel sauce on top of tender chocolate crepes filled with banana berry goodness!
Mango Espresso Crepes can also be reimagined as the star of the show in a spectacular dessert like crepe cake. For the best chocolate crepe filling, we recommend blending Swerve sweetener into buttery cocoa sauces for maximum richness.
Finally, if you’re feeling French-inspired or in need of a sophisticated dessert presentation, take inspiration from the classic crepe suzette: flambeed with orange liqueur and sugar, served hot in delightful variations such as coco crepes with guava jelly mousse or paired with coffee crepes for a monsieur crepe cafe flavor.
No matter how you choose to serve it or pair it, Mango Espresso Crepes delightfully yield to infinite possibilities when it comes to providing taste satisfaction.
Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
As a barista, nothing is more important to me than serving my customers the best coffee experience possible. That’s why I know that sometimes you don’t have the time to make everything from scratch every time. That’s where this recipe comes in handy. Not only are these Mango Espresso Crepes easy to make, but they are also great for making ahead and storing, so you can have a delicious dish ready to go at any moment.
To make ahead, simply prepare the crepes and mango filling as per the instructions and store them separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to serve, reheat the crepes by placing them in a warm oven for 2-3 minutes or in a microwave for 20 seconds until heated through. The filling can be reheated on the stove or in the microwave before assembling.
If you have pre-made crepes, you can also store them in an airtight container or plastic bag in your fridge or freezer. Take them out of the freezer and allow them to thaw before reheating by microwaving or warming up in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Storing these crepes is easy and convenient because they are small and compact, which makes them perfect for meal prep or on-the-go breakfasts. These crepes supposed crispy but can soften over time, so it’s best to store them without filling if storage is intended for longer periods. The mango espresso crepes will still taste delightful and satisfying even if they’re not as crispy as fresh out of the pan.
In conclusion, this recipe is not only easy to make, but it’s also perfect for meal prepping and making ahead of time. Just store your crepes and filling properly, reheat when needed, and enjoy a light delicate dessert or breakfast that’s free vegan with fruit-based fillings.
Tips for Perfect Results
As a barista, I have experimented with countless coffee and cream combinations. When making mango espresso crepes, there are some key tips that I’ve observed will make for the perfect results. Here are my tips for cooking up some irresistible mango espresso crepes:
Firstly, preheat your griddle or large frying pan to medium-high heat. This is important in order to create light and delicate crepes that are supposed crispy on the edges.
Secondly, ensure that you make your crepe batter thin enough by adding water little by little. Thin pancakes ensure even cooking throughout and give you room for toppings like the mango filling.
Thirdly, use coconut oil instead of butter for a dairy free or vegan option. Coconut oil has a higher smoking point which makes it great for high heat cooking without releasing harmful radicals.
Fourthly, flip your crepe over only once during cooking. While it might be tempting to flip it many times especially if it appears too liquidy, it can lead to dry and tough crepes.
Fifthly, add the mango filling before rolling the crepe to make it stick together and prevent it from falling apart. The blueberry-mango or mango-papaya-brown butter-cinnamon fillings can also be curled inside the crepe with amazing results.
Lastly, experiment boldly! Coffee crepes are old favorites but don’t hesitate to try out other flavors like chocolate sauce or guinness cream caramel sauce topped with mint or whipped cream mixed with sweeteners like swerve sweetener.
As I know you might have some questions regarding this recipe, in this section, I will answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the Mango Espresso Crepes Recipe. I hope this clears all your doubts and helps in creating a perfect Mango Espresso Crepes recipe!
Should you make crepe batter the night before?
Preparing crepes in advance can be a great time-saver. It is possible to mix the batter up to 24 hours before cooking, which can be stored in a blender or a bowl covered tightly. When ready to cook, simply use the stored batter to make crepes. However, it’s recommended to consume crepes immediately for the best flavor, although storing them in the fridge is a viable option for up to 2 days.
Should crepes be crispy or soft?
When it comes to crepes, the typical notion is that they should have a light texture and delicate taste with a possible deviation between sweet and savory options. The common question asked is whether they should be crispy or not. It’s worth noting that crepes are not supposed to be crispy but rather have a soft and slightly chewy texture.
What makes crepes tough?
To achieve tender and soft crepes, a sufficient amount of fat is required in the recipe. While some vegan or egg-free crepe recipes might exist, most of them replace eggs with an alternative fat source such as vegetable oil or butter. Without eggs, the fat in the recipe becomes even more crucial in providing the crepe with its desired texture.
How to make pre made crepes?
Looking to prepare some tasty crepes without all the fuss? Here’s a simple recipe that will do the trick. Begin by heating up a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Once heated, retrieve a pre-made crepe and gently place it onto the hot surface. Cook the crepe for approximately 30-45 seconds or until the edges develop a nice golden-brown color.
