Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon beetroot powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 shots of espresso or ½ cup of strong coffee

Instructions

  • Heat almond milk in a large saucepan over medium heat. Don't bring to a boil.
  • When milk is warm, add the beetroot powder, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk in quick strokes until milk creates a frothy foam. If you prefer, you can transfer the milk to a blender, and blend at medium speed. This will create a nice foam. You can also use a milk frother if you have one.
    Note: If you don't want coffee with your beetroot latte, pour your milk into two mugs, and skip to step 4.

Notes

Tips for Making a Beetroot Latte
  • Heat the milk on medium-low. Many times I have walked away from almond milk, only to find it bubbling over the pan. Stay close while you're heating the milk, and keep the heat medium-low so you don't make a mess!
  • To get a nice frothy foam from whisking, use short quick movements with your whisk. If you need more foam, just keep whisking.
  • If you prefer not to put a lot of elbow grease into making your foam, you can use a frothing wand, or transfer the milk to a blender. Blend for 20- 30 seconds. It will create a quick foam in no time!
  • For added flavor, top your latte with a sprinkle of warm cinnamon, and a pinch of beetroot powder!
