Beetroot latte with almond mylk

This gorgeous brew does not taste of beetroot, all you get is the slightly sweet creaminess from the almond milk. It's even better if you use homemade almond mylk (check our recipe HERE).

Beetroots are amazing. Studies have shown that consuming plant foods like beetroot decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and has a positive effect on skin and hair health (hell yeah). Beets can also increase overall energy levels which has the potential to enhance exercise tolerance.

Ingredients (serves 1)
300-400ml unsweetened almond milk
1-2 tablespoons beetroot powder (Dr Mercola Fermented Beet Powder is great)
2 teaspoons coconut sugar (optional) or honey

Directions Gently heat 200ml of the almond milk and add the beetroot powder and coconut sugar if using (you do not want it to boil). In a warm cup, pour the beetroot/almond milk mix. Froth the rest of the almond milk and tipping the cup, add the frothed milk and enjoy.
