Super easy and filled with vibrant color, this is a simple frosting to whip up, without any artificial colors, dyes or preservatives (unfortunately, I think the benefits from beets is minimal)!


2 cups pure powdered sugar

5 tablespoons softened butter

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 tablespoon whole milk

1 tablespoon peeled, diced beets


1. Prepare beets and set aside.

2. Place powdered sugar, softened butter, vanilla, milk and beets in a food processor.

Sometimes I am blinded by the beauty of colorful treats that I forget that artificial colors and dyes are not as lovely as they appear. Over the years, I have learned more and more about some of the concerns that these dyes pose to our health, especially for kids. (Read more, A Dangerous Rainbow: Artificial Colors & Dyes in Our Foods). So, I am always challenged to find ways to naturally color our treats.

Beets are so awesome, why not make a frosting out of them? They are so colorful and vibrant in their hue, that they make a perfect natural way to color foods.

This frosting can be used with any cookie or cupcake. (Or *ahem*, you could even just with a spoon…)
