1.) I took the beets and shredded them with a cheese grater. You could also do the food processor. TIP: You want the liquid drained off so it does not thin out the cream cheese. 2.) Stir the beets into softened cream cheese and mix well. TIP: add more or less beets to adjust color level.

One of the main reasons I love this idea for kids is because it is not sugary sweet and it is actually healthy! I eat beets often because they are high in potassium, fiber, folate and Vitamin C. They also have minerals such as iron. SO HEALTHY!

I also love this recipe because the kids can make it themselves! Even the youngest child can be a chef and create their own culinary masterpiece.

      I used canned and rinsed beets and it was not strong, but he is used to eating a lot of veggies. You could always just use the juice for natural color and skip the grated beets :)
