Beet Latte, you say? Yep, I went there. This pink latte is frothy, tasty, and made from only 5 healthy ingredients

Plus, it looks pretty. And we all know you eat with your eyes first 😉

I’ve been a fan of Golden Milk for a while now, but I have to say that this Beet Latte might be a new favorite! I was first inspired to make my own when my good friend told me how much he loved the one from Bluestone Lane, a popular coffee shop on the East Coast. I didn’t live near one, but I still wanted to see if I could get in on this goodness.

I knew that I wanted my Beet Latte to be creamy, tangy, and slightly sweet…but that’s about it. After a few experiments (and some epic fails) in the kitchen, I finally came up with this super yummy combo and am excited to share it with you.

First, you’re going to need some Beet Powder.

Beet Powder essentially a form of concentrated Beets. Because it’s a powder, it dissolves in liquid easily and won’t leave any “chunks” in your latte (ew). An added Bonus? It’s packed with plant-based goodness! Beets are a great natural source of Iron, and can support Heart, Blood and Liver health.

I personally love to use Sunfood’s Beet Powder, as it is Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Organic!

As for our other ingredients? Well, let’s see…

  • Coffee: love the taste of Coffee, and think that the acidity of the Coffee helps to round out and balance the Beet flavor as well. If you’re not a fan of Coffee, you can use Hot Water instead – just see the recipe notes for some spice adjustments!
  • Cacao Powder: the combination of Beets and Chocolate may sound odd, but trust me – it works. Not only does it give the latte more depth of flavor, but it also helps to boost the creaminess factor.

  • Powdered Ginger: I’m a sucker for spice and I wanted this latte to have a “kick”. Adding just a touch of Powdered Ginger really helps to give this Beet Latte more warmth and body.
  • Maple Syrup: Typically I don’t like sweetened lattes, but I would strongly recommend the Maple Syrup here to help complement the earthiness of the Cacao Powder and Beet Powder. A little goes a long way, but you can also add more to taste too.
  • Soaked Cashews: I opted to use soaked Nuts instead of Nondairy Milk for this recipe. Most store-bought milks are not creamy or concentrated enough for a latte, plus they don’t froth well. I’m happy to report that this is not the case with Cashews! They blend into a creamy, frothy, liquid that is perfect for lattes.

Note: I realize everyone may not have access to Cashews and/or a high-speed blender, so I also tested out a few other options, which you can find in the recipe notes.

I love to enjoy this Beet Latte alongside my breakfast, but it’d also be great as an afternoon pick-me-up as well. It tastes just as delicious as it looks, so I do hope you try it out 🙂

Beet Latte Recipe

Skip the coffee shop and make your own Beet Latte at home with this easy recipe! This cozy and creamy pink latte is perfect for a chilly day.

  • Author: Caitlin Shoemaker
  • Prep Time: 7 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 Minutes
  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Serving 1x
  • Category: Drink
  • Method: Blender
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 oz Brewed Hot Coffee*
  • ¼ cup Cashews, soaked
  • 1 tsp Sunfood’s Beet Powder
  • ½ tbsp Cacao Powder
  • ¼½ tsp Powdered Ginger, depending on preference
  • 1 tsp Maple Syrup
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a vented high-speed blender and blend (with the vent open) on the highest setting for 60 seconds. Carefully pour into a mug and enjoy!

Notes

  • Caffeine-Free Version: replace the coffee with Hot Water and increase the Beet Powder to 1 1/2 tsp, as well as the Cacao Powder to 1 tbsp. 
  • Cashew Substitutions: if you have an allergy, or do not have access to Cashews, or have a lower-speed blender, substitute the Cashews for 3 tbsp Hemp Hearts! Otherwise I do not recommend using any other Nuts or Seeds. You can also replace the Cashews with 2 tbsp of a Nut or Seed butter, but the end result will not be as creamy.
  • A note on Blenders: I made this recipe in my Vitamix; you will need a high-speed blender in order to completely blend the Cashews. Do NOT attempt to make this recipe if your blender does not have a vent. The hot liquid will create a seal in the container and it will be impossible to open. (ie do not use a “bullet” style machine, please!)

  1. Hi I can’t wait to try this, but wondering if I could replace the brewed coffee for instant coffee at the same amount?
    Much appreciated
