Valentine’s Day Beet Recipes

Posted on: January 15th, 2014 by healing_arts_admin

Sneaking Beets to kids, ha ha!



So as much as I fed my son wholesome fruits and veggies as a baby, he is the pickiest eater now, who is not fond of fruits and veggies.  He does love red velvet cupcakes though.  One day I figured out how to use some beet puree to make red velvet cupcakes & he loved them!!!
Now I will be honest, I’m a busy working mom, so often I just use the boxed brownie mixes & add one cup of beet puree to the mix. Easy Peasy! I have a Nutribullet which can puree raw beets in a snap. If you just have a blender or food processor, you may want to parboil your beets ahead of time.
I like to make these in mini cupcake pans because with the beets, they do get a little gooey & then they can be just one bite cupcakes (less chance of being discovered, too!)

If you really want to make them from scratch, here is a recipe:

Preheat your oven for 350 degrees.

1/2 stick butter

2 Eggs

3/4 Cup Chocolate powder, Cacao or cocoa whichever you prefer

1/2 Cup chocolate chips

1/2 Cup brown Sugar

1 Cup flour

1 cup beet puree

1 tblsp Vanilla

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

beat together eggs, sugar and vanilla, then add beet puree, stir, then add cocoa powder, flour, mix.

Pour into small cupcake pan. Bake for 15 minutes, check w/ fork that they are done, I find some inconsistencies w/ the beet puree so you may need a few more minutes baking.  They are super moist & delicious!

Valentine’s Day Aphrodisiac Aromatherapy Bath Salts

Posted on: January 14th, 2014 by healing_arts_admin


This Valentine’s Day we will be offering Couples Massage on Friday eve 2/14.14 & Saturday 2/15/14 by appointment. In your special Valentine’s massage, we will also offer chocolates, pink champagne.  Plus you will receive complimentary Aphrodisiac Aromatherapy Bath Salts which include Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Bulgarian Rose, Clary Sage and Cedarwood. It is a soothing combination which also increases fertility, so look out!  I think Aphrodisiac must come from the Greek Goddess Aphrodite who ruled over beauty, love and fertility.  Ylang Ylang is also a great uplifter to ward off seasonal affect disorder, guess Valentine’s day comes at the right time of year!

You can also purchase your Valentine’s Massage Gift Cards online with our handy dandy paypal button.
May you lavish in LOVE this Valentine’s Day!
