  • 1 1/3 cups skim milk
  • 1 cup chopped cooked beets (about 3)
  • 2 drops red food coloring (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, plus additional for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • Maple syrup (optional)


Preheat oven to 200°. In a blender, combine the milk, beets and food coloring (if using). Blend until smooth. While blender is running, add the eggs, oil and vanilla; blend until combined.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the beet mixture and stir until just combined.

Preheat a waffle iron and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Pour about 1/2 cup batter for each waffle; cook according to manufacturer’s instructions until waffles are crisp.

Top waffles with a dollop of yogurt, blueberries and a dusting of cinnamon. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
