Guava Cream Blintzes » Simple and Healthy Recipe! ✅

I never knew what blintzes were until I saw them on this site. The lemon one, I had to try it once. I loved how similar they were to crepes and pancakes. I honestly didn’t see any difference in them from the crepes. My husband loved guava and I make french toast stuffed with this cream cheese filling which is a hit. So I thought I’d use the same guava and cream cheese filling along with fresh strawberries and rhubarb. —Devangi Raval
