Beets in a dessert isn’t all that strange. Last summer I tried a beet gelato at the Watermark’s Farm to Vine experience and it was delicious. I was surprised at how much I liked it, it’s a year later and I’m still talking about it. So today when my son asked to make popsicles, I wanted to give beet popsicles a whirl.

I bought a package of pre-cooked beets from Costco a bit ago (which are awesome by the way) and plopped one them into my mixture of water, raspberries, and strawberries. I’m sure if you peeled a raw beet it would work too. I’m assuming a roasted beet would be sweeter, which is what I wanted.

As for a sweetener, I used honey and a package of truvia. The reasoning? The honey was sweet, but I knew my son would want sweeter and I didn’t want to add any more calories (for my selfish reasons) so I opted for some stevia. Play around with the tastes for yourself and see what works for you and your family.

I used both my Zoku and my popsicle mold. I love my molds but I noticed my popsicle one was leaving black marks on my hand (which is why you see my finger prints all over the popsicle sticks). I’m not sure why that’s happening, if you do – let me know. Maybe it’s because I throw it in the dishwasher and it’s not dishwasher approved? 🙈
