Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the beets.

Method

  1. Prepare the beets: boil or steam them about 25 min, then peel and roughly chop them. Transfer to a blender and purée. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the soy milk over medium heat. Add the agar-agar powder and make sure it is well dissolved. Stir in the coffee and mix well.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook over low heat until the cream cheese and sugar are well dissolved.
  4. Pour the mixture into 8 individual glasses then let set in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Serve.
