Prepare the sweet cheese - place all cheese ingredients in a high-speed or a food processor and blend together until creamy. I use the whole vanilla bean as I own a very powerful blender (Vitamix) but it's possible to cut it lengthwise and scrape the inside using a teaspoon.
Prepare the blintzes batter - mix the quinoa flour and baking powder in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, coconut oil, vinegar, vanilla extract, and maple.
Gradually pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture, while whisking. The batter should be slightly thinner than a pancake batter; if needed add 1-2 tbsp of water.
Cook the blintzes - brush a non-stick skillet with some coconut oil and place it over medium heat.
Pour some batter (about 0.5 ladle) and shake the skillet from side to side to create a thin crepe (the blintzes should be thin and light). Continue with the rest of the batter.
Remove the cooked blintzes onto a plate and cover with a clean towel or plate to keep warm and flexible.
Rolling the blintzes - place 1 tbsp of cheese at the center of each blintz and spread over the half close to you. Roll the blintzes (starting from the cheese-covered side) and decorate with powdered sugar. Serve with a side of warmed berries.
Prepare the berries - place a small skillet over low heat and add the berries and maple. Cook for 5 minutes.
You can prepare the cheese in advance.
It's recommended to serve the blitzes immediately after preparing them.
