Beetroot that tastes like chocolate!

Yields12 Servings
Prep Time10 mins

Beetroot is so awesome. I have been using it more and more in cooking and I love it when I can get it into my kids. We sometimes have it in our Red Refresher Juice and this is the juice I always make when anyone might be getting a cold. Beetroot is highly nutritive and a brilliant blood cleanser.

I first saw this recipe on Natural New Age Mum blog site and I wanted to make it as soon as I saw that incredible colour. She has some brilliant recipes and the original recipe is here.  I have changed this recipe a bit though as I'm not a huge fan of coconut flour in some things and added a few extra bits and pieces.

It's a beautiful way to get beetroot in kids. I have made this as a cake too and it was well received by 30 x 3 year olds at our end of year kinder party! I figure if fussy kids give it the thumbs up then it must be pretty good! If you wonder how I coloured the icing pink - you guessed it - beetroot!! Most amazing food colouring there is!!!

We really enjoy it and I hope you do too!
