Beets are a nutritional powerhouse loaded with immune boosting qualities! Did you know 1 tsp of beet powder is equivalent to the nutrition of 1 whole beet???!!! Dehydrated beets, ground into a powder can be used in smoothies, sauces, soups, treats and more, adding a gorgeous color and an instant shot of health.
Homemade Beet Powder for Beet Juice, Smoothies, Natural Make-Up and More [Vegan]
- 2 red beets
- Wash and peel the beets.
- Slice thin with a knife or mandolin.
- Place on a dehydrator rack. Dehydrate overnight at 104-105 degrees until completely dehydrated. (I let ours continue until mid-day.)
- Remove and grind into a fine powder. I ground ours in our coffee grinder.
I even used the beet powder as a 100% organic and raw blush and lip-gloss! Place the beet powder in a clean make-up container for powders or tap some in the lid of a jar (I chose this option) dab your brush in the powder, tap it to remove any excess chunks and apply, adding additional layers as preferred to reach a beautiful glow! For lip-gloss use a carrier oil such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, almond oil and apply to lips, rub in. Dab your finger in the powder and rub your lips together or use your finger to rub in. The moisture in the oil will unleash the color for beautiful kiss-worthy lips. Simple and pretty!
