Raw Vegan Red Velvet Beet Bites

Last week I shared a pic on the Live Simply Natural Instagram page asking about your favorite way to eat beets! I was surprised by the response and all the creative ideas out there. So I thought to try this one as it was requested by a friend of mine. Raw Vegan Red Velvet Beet Bites, filled with the all-natural red color of beets and a ton of other good-for-you ingredients.

Not only does this beet bite taste amazing but the presentation of this cookie is incredibly beautiful with the contrast of maroon from the beets and white from the cashew cream coating and sprinkle a bit of beet on top… Perfection!

What I love most about this recipe is you still feel amazing and energetic after indulging in these red velvet beet bites, it’s all about the quality and combination of ingredients. I highly recommend making these to celebrate any special occasion. 

I know I’m not the only one to try out this recipe, nor am I the only one to incorporating vegetables into desserts, but I won’t be stopping anytime soon. Vegetables are far too underused and it’s my mission to share how you can creatively add them to any type of food.

Instructions

  1. Wash and peel beets and add them to the food processor (with a nut milk bag squeeze out remaining liquid and place back into the food processor)
  2. Add almonds, oats, chia seeds, raw cacao, salt and vanilla, pulse until combined into a fine flour. Then add Medjool dates and pulse until dough is formed.

  3. Scoop out raw red velvet dough and roll into 2 inch bites, place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  4. To make your cashew cream frosting add coconut oil, cacao butter, cashew butter and maple syrup to a small pot. Mix until melted and fully combined.

  6. Store them in the fridge for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to one month.
