How to Make Beet Powder (Beetroot Powder)
The health benefits of Beet Powder (beet root powder or beetroot powder, as some may know it) are numerous. So it is well worth learning how to make this at home so that you can enjoy all the nutrients beets have to offer.
Benefits of Beet Powder
Homemade Beet Powder has so many health benefits for the human body, and scientists tell us it’s particularly helpful in detoxifying the liver. Plus, the powder is loaded with vitamins and minerals, and it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that scientists believe may improve the cardiovascular system helping to protect the heart!
Beet Powder is so easy to make. You’ll finish creating it and have it ready to use in just a few hours. Mix the powder into water, and you’ll have a delightfully flavorful drink. And you’ll be surprised how tasty it is. Even if you say you don’t like beets, give this a try. The flavor is really quite nice and mild.
If you decide you don’t want to use it to make a drink, no problem. Some ladies actually use it as a natural blush. How about that! A kitchen staple that does double duty for us inside and out!

How to Make Beet Powder
- 9 Beets, raw, peeled and sliced 1/8-1/4 inch
- Place sliced beets on parchment-lined baking sheets. Or place beets on a cooling rack placed inside of a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Place baking sheets into a preheated 200°F oven for 4 hours or until beet slices are completely dried and are crisp when broken in half. Take care to make sure that the beets DO NOT BROWN.
- Working in batches, pulverize dried beets in a spice grinder until they turn into a fine powder.
- Store powder in an airtight jar in the refrigerator. Adding an oxygen absorber to the jar can be very helpful. The Beet Powder should stay fresh for about 6 months. To use Beet Powder, add 1 teaspoon to eight ounces of water and blend well. Add ice, if you wish, and enjoy.
