They’ve got the Beet: Red Velvet Overnight Oats With Raspberry Beet Purée by Flora & Vino

These Red Velvet Overnight Oats with Raspberry Beet Purée taste like the chocolate cake with simple ingredients that you mix together the night before.

Can I interest you in a red velvet-inspired breakfast make your busy week and little less busy and lot tastier?

Grab a mason jar and let’s mix things up.

They’re thick, chocolate-y, lightly sweet, and packed with protein and texture.

An easy 2-ingredient raspberry-beet purée made with roasted beets and fresh raspberries is the secret to achieving that red velvet color and flavor.

Earthy sweet beets paired with tart raspberries and raw cacao powder are the trifecta of dessert flavors here, lightly sweetened with maple syrup.

If you’re looking for a lower sugar option, you can omit the maple syrup out entirely and add extra berries, but I think it tastes best included.

The raspberry-beet purée below makes extra, so try doubling or tripling the oats recipe to make multiples for the week!

You can also enjoy the purée in smoothie bowls, yogurt parfaits, oatmeal, toast, or baking.
