I never really grew out of the “playing with my food” phase. It mostly just evolved into me seeing how weirdly shaped, colored, or textured I could make my food using natural ingredients. Sometimes I get lucky with a recipe that checks off all three boxes. These Beet Beauty Cubes definitely hit the mark.
These guys don’t just have “beauty” in their name because of their pink hue. They make you beautiful too! They get their chewable, pudding texture from a mix of Collagen Gelatin and coconut butter. Collagen is not just a great protein source, it also has been linked to keeping joints and bones healthy as well as promotes and supports skin, hair, and nail growth.
Their natural pink color is also a key player in why these cubes should be part of your beauty regimen. They’re colored with beet powder! Beets are known for keeping your brain, eyes, gut, and heart healthy from increased blood flow. The improved blood flow can help with workouts as well as improve your mood. Popping 1 or 2 of these before a tough workout will help you push through and smile while you do it. Okay, I don’t think I’ve ever smiled while doing a plank, but maybe if I eat a whole batch of these I might smirk.
A little recap: these cubes will give you flowing hair and radiant skin, while doing collagen-protein powered crunches effortlessly to get your beautiful bod in tip top shape, and you'll be grinning the whole time. And there’s nothing more beautiful than a smile! Whether your goals are physical, aesthetic, or mental, these Beet Beauty Cubes will help you reach them!
Even if you don’t have any goals, they’re pink, weirdly shaped, and easy to make (and easier to eat!). Make them and live out your 1st grade dream of eating your eraser in class.
Easy, breezy, beauty cubes.
