  1. Puree steamed beet with coconut oil and 1/4 cup (60mL) coconut milk in a food processor or blender until very smooth. Set dark chocolate in the top part of a double boiler, or glass bowl set over a pot with 1 inch simmering water, over low heat. Add remaining 3/4 cup (180mL) coconut milk and vanilla and allow to gently melt. Stir in beet puree. Set aside.
  2. Using your preferred double boiler method again, melt the white chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat and allow chocolate to cool to just above room temperature. Mix in softened cream cheese and coconut milk.
  3. Layer the chocolate and cream cheese in a fondue pot. Give the cream cheese chocolate a swirl pattern on top by dragging a toothpick between the dark and white chocolate. Garnish with coconut (optional) and serve with fruit for dipping.
