Red Velvet Vegan Cake Pops with Red Yeast Rice

These red velvet cake pops are a dessert lover’s dream come true… aaaand they’re completely free of added sugars!

We are always looking for fun ways to incorporate our products into recipes, and these are definitely one of our new favorites. This recipe has a base of coconut flour and beets, with a special addition of our Red Yeast Rice formula to help those who may be struggling with high cholesterol, imbalanced blood sugar levels, or a slow metabolism.

Studies have shown that diets high in sugar can cause cholesterol levels to increase, thus leading to other potential issues down the road. Since this is the case, we decided to sweeten the cake pop filling with monk fruit granules and also chose some sugar free vegan chocolate chips to dip them in so no one has to miss out on this delicious recipe!
