  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 on medium-high heat. 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. Add the cinnamon stick and maple syrup. Let the mixture heat up, stirring throughout to prevent burning. Let simmer for about 3 minutes, then remove the cinnamon stick.
  4. Pour into mugs and optionally add a shot of espresso. Stir, and enjoy!


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


  • Best to enjoy immediately.

I am enjoying this recipe. I didn't have dates so I substituted dried cherries (6) and a few grapes. For the espresso I used a small amount of instant coffee granules. IT IS A HIT! Thank you for the recipe.

Hey there, Meg, thanks a bunch for sharing your experience with the beetroot latte and the glowing review 🥰

Michaela - March 5, 2024, 2:55 p.m.

Use half raw and half cooked beet, half and half ricemilk and soymilk, one date and cinnamonpowder.
Last time i make it is years ago. Why?
Its sooo delicious.🤤

PUL Team - March 5, 2024, 4:58 p.m.

Sounds delicious, Michaela! We're so glad that the beetroot latte is being enjoyed :)

Delicious, I prefer it without coffee

Lae - Jan. 13, 2024, 4:05 p.m.

My mom and I love it! One the dozens recipes I tried, and again I'm am impressed! Thank you☕🥰

Joy - Dec. 14, 2023, 8:03 p.m.

This is absolutely delicious. I must admit I was sceptical at first but it blew me away!
Also, one time I added half a Banana that I had lying around and omitted the maple syrup (blend the Banana with the Beetroot and milk) and that is also delicious :)

PUL Team - Dec. 15, 2023, 8:06 a.m.

Mmm banana sounds like a lovely twist! We're so happy that the Beetroot Latte is being enjoyed, Joy ☺️

This was delicious! I'm a new beetroot convert and I'm trying to experiment with different combinations. I was a bit sceptic about a sweet beetroot recipe, but I'm so glad I gave it a shot. This latte is such a fun way to incorporate more goodness into hot drinks.

PUL Team - April 17, 2023, 1:07 a.m.

Ooo welcome to team beet! So happy to hear, Becky ❣️

Lovely for a study afternoon

This is one of the most delicious late I have ever tasted! Strongly recommend!

This was delish! Thanks PUL!

Lorna - Jan. 16, 2022, 12:40 p.m.

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

PUL Team - Jan. 16, 2022, 8:21 p.m.

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

Shradha - Nov. 28, 2021, 10:37 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - Nov. 28, 2021, 11:14 p.m.

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

Maira Ashraf - Nov. 23, 2021, 3:04 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Nov. 24, 2021, 7:57 p.m.

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 🥰

PUL Team - Nov. 25, 2021, 6:32 p.m.

So glad to hear, Maira, enjoy!

Mags - Sept. 3, 2021, 8:23 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - Sept. 4, 2021, 1:22 a.m.

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

Georgiana - July 30, 2021, 2:44 p.m.

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 :)

Lisa - July 9, 2021, 6:04 p.m.

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 😃
