How to Make Beet Powder (Beetroot Powder)
Hi Sweet Friends,
The health benefits of Beet Powder (beet root powder or beetroot powder, as some many 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.
Homemade Beet Powder has so many health benefits for the human body, and science tells us it’s particularly helpful for detoxification of the liver. Plus it 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 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!
