Add organic haskap berries to any salad or create a salad dressing by mixing haskap syrup, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, pepper and Italian spices. You can use the juice from fresh haskap berries in the dressing instead of the haskap syrup.

1 1/2C milk
Butter or oil for the pan
1C ricotta cheese
Sugar to taste
Haskaps, as many you can put in! And on top!
To make this recipe even healthier use coconut oil for the pan, put agave syrup into the cheese instead of sugar. Replace 1/4C of the flour with a mixture of Chia and flax seeds. Note the Chia seeds will make the mixture thick so don't put a lot in the pan and make sure you spread it out or you'll have thick crepes!
