  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup pureed beets OR 1 tbsp beet powder
  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries
  • 3/4 cup nut milk (Try fresh young coconut milk – so sweet!)
  • 1.5 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

  3. Decorate with whipped cream and chocolate shavings if you’d like.


If you’d like more of a vibrant color, use fresh or freshly roasted beets instead of beet powder, and swap 1/2 a tablespoon of cocoa powder for 1/2 teaspoon chocolate extract.  Feel free to double the maple syrup for a super sweet treat!!!
