2 beetroots 260 g
1 cup soy beverage, unsweetened, fortified 250 mL
1 tbsp gelatin 6 g
5 g instant coffee 2 tbsp
1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce 125 mL
3/4 cup cream cheese, light 120 g
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2.5 mL
1/3 cup sugar 65 g

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 gelatin 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 individual glasses then let set in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Serve.

I have to admit that I couldn't understand the appeal of mixing coffee with sugar beets. One thing for sure; the amount of coffee required in the recipe was way too much. If I would ever do this again (which I doubt I would) I would use maximum half of the amount if not less.
