Red Velvet Protein Bites

Have you ever heard of beet powder? Ya know, beets that have been dried and ground into a powder?

I hadn’t until recently and I wish I had discovered it sooner. If it sounds weird, hear me out!

Beet powder is loaded with vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B6 and C, magnesium, iron, folate, potassium, iron, and calcium. It’s a great way to add natural color to smoothies and it’s common for companies to use beet powder to naturally color their products.

Beet powder adds a unique aspect to these bites. It gives them that “red velvet” taste and color. These little guys are super tasty and full of nutrition, I hope you enjoy them!
