I loved this recipe. But I did add a few things. I added Strawberries intead of bananas. I added counut and pecans. That got rid of the sourcream taste. It tasted like cream cheese.

I tried this in my crepes. It was ok, I didn't have bananas and I added pecans to the filling. It was..ok. It was kinda runny, maybe cream cheese would be better then sour cream.

I liked this idea, but I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream and topped with peaches. It was a nice variety from my usual crepe fillings.

Perfect filling. I didn't find it too thin at all. I use strawberries and bananas with this recipe. Delicious!
