Healthy Beetroot Red Velvet Hot Cocoa to make all of your red velvet dreams come true! Between its cocoa beet flavor, and sweet cocoa aroma, this hot beverage will have you coming back for more. Made with superfoods like coconut, collagen, beetroot, and cacao, and only takes 5 minutes to make! Dairy-free, allergy-friendly, and paleo.
Creamy, decadent, sweet, rich, flavorful. That's how I would describe this creamy Healthy Beetroot Red Velvet Hot Cocoa.
With hints of beet for that nutritional punch, and gorgeous red velvet color!
Never overpowered by the beetroot, and just enough to make it taste like hot cocoa.
I was once wary too, about beetroot powder. Would it really taste like "red velvet hot cocoa"? Or would it taste like beets? And if it tasted like beets or overpowered beets, I wasn't going to like it.
I am here to report beetroot powder in hot cocoa tastes really good.
You think it's gonna be all beet and it's just the opposite. You'll taste more chocolate and sweetness than a beet giving you that red velvet hot cocoa feeling. But make no mistake, you'll taste the beet. Besides color, beetroot is added for a reason.
Using beetroot powder plain would result in a bitter beverage. It's all about the perfect amount of beetroot powder and the perfect amount of healthy sugar. Using a healthy sugar alternative alongside beetroot makes the flavor sweet, naturally complimenting the cocoa.
This is also a really fun way to add superfood powders to your meals. You get that great taste and nutrient-dense value in just a small amount plus a gorgeous color to brighten your day.

What a great idea to add beetroot into hot chocolate! Can't wait to make more of this
Just the best! It makes me so happy when I see functional food healing others!
I can't believe how much nutrition is packed into this little chocolate drink! I've never heard of beetroot powder (though I love beets). Definitely buying it to try this fun and healthy hot chocolate.
Girlie you have to try beet powder if you love beets!! Its the best with chocolate you barely taste it.
What a great way to get some nutrients into your diet! I find that beets are a little earthy on their own but chocolate is the perfect match for them!
Agreed! If you're not adding chocolate to beets they are not tasting that great. I agree. However paired with chocolate and you'll be wowed! xx
Our city holds a hot chocolate festival every February and one year there was a beetroot hot chocolate. I've been looking for a recipe ever since! Thank you so much for this post.
I desperately want to go to your hot chocolate festival what a super cool event thrown by your city! So welcome : )
This beetroot red velvet cocoa looks so healthy and delicious! I have never heard of beetroot powder before, I will be ordering some now. Thanks!
OMG Beetroot powder is the best because it's so concentrated with nutrients and vitamins and in such a small quantity. Mix it with chocolate and you'll be turned forever.
