Beetroot Latte By Sophia Abi Chahine

Quick ✔ Vegan ✔ Caffeine-Free ✔

With only 2 steps and 2 ingredients: beetroot powder and vegan milk, this Beetroot Latte is perfect for a chilly or hot day. This latte is not only pretty (because who doesn’t like the color pink?), but it’s also super nutritious. Before we go on to list its health benefits, let us tell you more about why you should start regularly drinking Beetroot Latte!


WHEN AND WHY DRINK BEETROOT LATTE?

Just like your daily coffee or tea, this latte should be drunk in the morning because it is an excellent source of energy. However, if you need some boost in the afternoon, don’t hold yourself back! You can drink this beetroot latte whenever you feel like it. It is preferred to drink it in the morning in order for the energy to fuel you through the day. Now, if you go to the gym or work out, you should aim to drink this latte 3 to 4 hours pre-workout, so it has time to give you the energy you need for your exercise routine.

Do you know why beetroot latte is suitable for adults and children alike? Because it is caffeine-free! You can enjoy this drink by yourself or with your children without worrying about any coffee-induced jitters. Beetroot latte is the perfect substitute for coffee for anyone looking to lower their caffeine intake or who does not drink coffee in the first place.

Added bonus: you can add a teaspoon of collagen powder to your latte just like you do with your daily morning coffee. 

BEETROOT POWDER HEALTH BENEFITS

Beetroot powder is made of dehydrated beets. Once sliced, beets are thoroughly dehydrated (all the moisture is gone), then finely ground to make a powder. The powder has various colors like pink, purple, orange, and reddish-brown, depending on the color of the beets. Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance.

VEGAN MILK HEALTH BENEFITS

Plant-based or vegan milk is rich in vitamins and minerals and low in cholesterol. It is advised to people who have a slow digestive system, are lactose intolerant, or people who wish to follow a cruelty-free lifestyle. So considering its many benefits, it can be a healthy alternative to cow’s milk. You can also find several types of plant-based milk: the most popular ones are almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, and soy milk. Other plant-based milk include hemp milk, oat milk, pea milk, and peanut milk.

To be fair, this beetroot latte will not appeal to everyone. Beetroot does have a slightly earthy taste, and to be honest, you have to love beetroot juice if you want to like this latte. To give it a sweeter taste, you can always resort to your go-to natural sweeteners like raw honey.
