Directions

  1. Combine the soy milk, beet, dates, and vanilla extract in a high-powered blender until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour this mixture straight into a saucepan. If your blender isn't very powerful, or if you don't like small fibres to remain in your drink, strain the mixture through a sieve while pouring it into the saucepan.
  3. Place on the stove on medium-high heat and add in a stick of cinnamon. Let the mixture heat up, stirring throughout to prevent burning.
  4. Taste test, and if you like it sweeter add some maple syrup. Let simmer for about 3 minutes, then remove the cinnamon stick.
  5. To a mug, add a shot of espresso (optional), and then pour over the beetroot-infused milk. Stir, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Nutrition tip: aim to use plant-based milk that is fortified with calcium.

Storage

  • Best to enjoy immediately.

Lovely flavour and perfect sweetness. I also tried it with chocolate oat milk, and it was even better than with espresso!

Mmm sounds delicious and we're so glad it was enjoyed, Lorna!

Never a disappointment! Such a great way to enjoy a hot smoothie on cold days with a bad throat. I also added some chia seeds to increase the protein!

Woohoo! Love the addition of chia seeds too, Shradha 😃

At first, it feels like yukh tbh, but in the third, fourth sip; taste begins to develop. I was in doubt while making it but I am surprised by the results.

Hi there, Maira, the latte has an earthy sweetness from the beetroot that may not be for everyone. If you end up giving it another try and are interested, adding more syrup can help sweeten it. Do let us know if you give the latte another try 😊

Maira Ashraf - Nov. 25, 2021, 3:22 p.m.

I tried it right now! I just increased the number of dates instead of syrup, it's delicious now 😋 Thanks for the suggestion 🥰

So glad to hear, Maira, enjoy!

I was so addicted to the Golden Latte that I was scared to try the beets, but I'm so happy I did. I love the earthy flavor the beets provide! Keep in mind that you will have a purple tongue after drinking :p Thank you, PUL team!

Thank you for taking the time to share the review, Mags! A lovely reminder about the purple tongue 😛

I love beetroot and I love this latte! It might look strange for others but the combo is amazing and I would recommend it to everyone. I've tried both versions: with and without espresso, both delicious but hey, I am a coffee lover so... :-D

PUL Team - Aug. 1, 2021, 8:49 a.m.

Mmm love the two variations! Thanks so much for the review, Georgiana :)

This drink is very good! For someone who did not particularly liked beetroot in the past, that was a pleasant surprise. It could be a great alternative for getting children used to beetroot as well.

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 2:10 a.m.

So glad you were pleasantly surprised, Lisa!


Aurora - July 9, 2021, 8:55 a.m.

That was delicious and I cannot wait for autumn to have this again!


Cyntia - July 8, 2021, 6:37 p.m.

Beets?? In a latte? Yes please! They are the earthy flavour I never realized I needed in my drinks. Genius idea and so incredibly satisfying. Delicious!

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 3:27 p.m.

Hehe love to hear this, Cyntia! So glad you're enjoying the latte 😃
