Dairy-free cheezy beet and kale chip recipe + video

by purelytwins

Healthy raw, vegan, gluten-free, grain-free recipe for beet and kale chips with a dairy-free sauce.


Cheezy beet and kale chips. The best healthy snack.

We are all finding a routine over here. Lori and Gary have been focusing on Madison, as I (Michelle) finish some work Lori and I started before the baby arrived.  We will be giving more of an update on our new life tomorrow!

Today’s veggie chip recipe is something we have been enjoying for a while now. We hope you enjoy these chips as much as we do.

We fell in love with kale chips about 5 years ago when we first got into raw foods. And we will be forever grateful 🙂 It’s a great addiction to have, do you agree?


We will confess that we will eat a whole bag of kale chips at once. Sometimes twice a day. Yep, we love them!

I thought of the idea to take a creamy dairy-free sauce and cover other veggies to see if they make cheezy chips like kale chips. We picked beets as the veggie to try because we love them (and have always wanted to make beet chips).  We think any vegetable could possibly work with this recipe to make cheezy chips.

Hi…I was wondering where you got your mandolin slicer & what brand? I like how it “catches” them but can’t seem to find one like it. Thanks!!
