Beets and cupcakes are two things that normally do not go together. However, this red velvet cupcake recipe uses them instead of red food coloring in order to produce a brightly colored treat. The batter is also vegan, made of beets, coconut oil, flour, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, natural cocoa powder and almond milk. The frosting contains cream cheese, but is otherwise healthy, although you can always substitute in vegan cream cheese if you prefer.
