Valentine's Day Treat with Beet Milk

Helllloooooo Friends! I have a special recipe to share with you all today, it's something you can make for your loved one for breakfast or a fun drink to make with kids! I made some yummy banana bread and an easy strawberry coconut whipped cream to go with the milk. 

I purchased my beets cooked and peeled from Sobey's and used this Almond Milk(made in Canada by the way!) I've tried many different Almond Milk's but this one has the perfect amount of sweetness. 

The beet milk is pretty simple to make all you need is a blender like this from Canadian Tire

Beet Milk Recipe: 

Step 1: Add 3 beets to the blender and chop them up.

Step 2: Slowly add the almond milk, I used 1 1/2 cups. Keep adding the milk until the beets have a smooth consistency.  

Step 3: Add 2 tbsp of maple syrup. You can add another if you find the taste of the beets still too strong. Add 1 tsp vanilla. 

Step 4: Blend all together one more time and beet milk is created! I would recommend storing it in the fridge for an hour. It tastes much better cold. 

I made a basic banana bread using a recipe I found on Pinterest. I cooked it in a cake pan instead of a bread pan and used a heart shape cookie cutter to cut them into hearts. Once cooled I added my strawberry whipped coconut cream. 

Strawberry Whipped Coconut Cream: 

Step 1: Store your canned coconut milk(I bought a mini can) in the fridge over night. Once chilled use a hand blender to whip into a cream. 

Step 2: Once whipped add 1 tbsp of strawberry jam, 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tsp of vanilla. Whip again. 

Step 3: Slather on your banana bread! 

You can have a ton of fun with whipped coconut cream by adding which ever jam you love the best!
