Chocolate Reishi Mini Donuts with Vanilla Beet Frosting
Happy heart day loves!! I wanted to create a healthier treat for Valentine’s day and these mini donuts were the result! With mushrooms being all the rage right now, especially Reishi, I wanted to make something fun with them. I also added a bit of beet root powder to the vanilla frosting to give it a nice natural pink hue! Reishi is believed to be good at reducing stress and beets are packed with nutrients that are said to improve blood flow and heart health! So… you could say these donuts are a mini step in the right direction towards a healthier heart?! I think so ;)
They are chocolatey with just a touch of earthiness and the frosting makes them taste divine but I even love them without it! I may even make them into muffins in the future because my husband and I loved the flavor without the frosting too! Look for those coming soon!
I made these cuties with my friends over at Vitacost, they always have the best products to keep my pantry well stocked! I love that I can find ready to use Simple Mills frosting and gluten free sprinkles that are naturally dyed. They make my life and baking SO much easier! I hope you give these mini donuts a go, they are really cute and a delicious way to treat yourself! Sending you all the love today!
