Lattes no longer consist of just espresso and hot steamed milk. Now, a variety of trendy lattes fill the menus at our favorite coffee shops, with the rise in popularity of chia lattes, golden lattes, matcha lattes and more.
We’re loving the new latte options popping up around town and on our Instagram feed. And a fairly new version we’ve seen gain some attention lately is the beet latte.
The dreamy pink color isn’t the only thing that making the beet latte an attractive drink. It’s packed with antioxidants and works to remove toxins from your liver. It’s also a fantastic caffeine-free energy-boosting alternative to help get you through Mondays or even your daily workout. In fact, a new study revealed that beets can help exercise performance and endurance, as well as provide many other health benefits.
Beet Latte Recipe
1 small beet
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp. honey
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground ginger
Wrap the beet in foil, pierce it with a fork a few times and bake it for 20-30 minutes, or until soft at 425 degrees. Blend all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth and then strain the liquid using a strainer or cheese cloth. Add the liquid to a medium pot over medium heat and continuously whisk until it is warm and foamy. Pour the drink into a cup, sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
