We have all read articles about benefits and negative sides of drinking coffee. What if there was a way to make your morning drink into a healthy superfood? Keep on reading if interested!
When I lived in United States my favorite coffee drink was peppermint mocha from Starbucks and during Summer months it was green tea frappucino. When I moved back to Europe my coffee got better but more traditional, you know..same old coffee…that was until I discovered some healthy substituted during pregnancy. I started drinking Matcha Latte’s which is rich in antioxidants and has more caffeine then coffee (think wakes you up faster).
I also tried to make Matcha ice-cream and it was delicious – try recipe here.
When visiting fabulous restaurant Brunch & Cake Barcelona I discovered another healthy substitute – Beetroot Latte! Yes ladies! Pink Latte! It does not get any cuter then this! I was (of course) skeptical at first as I am not a big fan of beetroot in any form but it’s actually quite tasty AND healthy! Win-win situation!
Read on for the recipes…
Fresh pressed beetroot or organic beetroot powder
3/4 cup of steamed almond milk ( (cow/coco, soy or oat milk)
1 shot of espresso
Simmer unsweetened almond milk in a small pot over medium-high heat. Place 1 teaspoon of beetroot powder or 1 tablespoon of beetroot juice powder in a heatproof cup. Slowly whisk in 1/4 cup boiling water, then almond milk, tipping cup slightly to create more foam. Poor it over espresso. Sweeten with agave syrup or honey.
This drink can be made with or without coffee.
