Vanilla Beet Protein Balls

 

Beet this recipe (pun intended)! Beet powder has turned these delicious protein packed snack balls pink!

What is beet powder?? Well, it’s self explanatory, dried beets ground into a powder. Using beet root powder made from dried beet roots is a great option for people who aren’t beet fans but still want the benefits. It works great as a natural food colouring without the added chemicals.

Beets are detoxifying, great for the liver and are naturally rich in nitrate, a compound that can improve blood flow and lower blood pressure. The use of beet powder over time may increases athletic performance, although more research needs to be completed to fully back this claim.
