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 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 🙂

  1. When I read that the spread was made of beets, I was surprised. How is the taste? If my kids will like the taste it would be a cool way to get them to eat beets, and me too! I would love that.

  2. Hi Jen,
