Beet That: Beetroot Powder Recipe

Rich in Vitamin A, B6 and C, antioxidants, iron, potassium, calcium, folate, dietary fibre and manganese, beetroots are truly versatile as well. In the news for a while now as a functional food that promotes good health, beetroot powder is simply beetroot in powdered form.

Even if you care nothing for its healthy properties, it makes a great natural fruit colouring for red velvet cake!

It can also be sprinkled on salads and added to water to make a nutritious drink, and to smoothies to up their goodness. Best of all, it can be made at home.

Beetroot Powder


2 medium beetroots


  1. Wash and peel the beetroots. Slice thinly and uniformly using a mandolin.
  2. Spread the slices in a single layer on baking trays.
  3. Preheat the oven at the lowest temperature setting. Place the trays of beetroot slices in the oven and bake for a day to dehydrate them.
  4. When the beets are crisp, remove from the oven, cool and grind into a fine powder. 
  5. Leave the mixer jar closed for 10 minutes for the powder to settle down before opening the mixer jar.
  6. Transfer to an airtight box and refrigerate.
  7. Use as needed.

Note: The powder can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
