Along with adding a burst of colour to your latte, beetroot is teeming with benefits. Studies show that it can help to support gut health and energy levels, and may even play a role in lowering blood pressure.

Autumnal beetroot latte recipe


Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cups of plant-based milk that’s enriched with calcium

  • 1 roasted beetroot

  • Cinnamon stick

  • A pinch of nutmeg

  • A tiny pinch of pepper

  • 1 tsp of vanilla

  • 1 or 2 dates

  • Nut butter (optional)

  • Maple syrup (optional)

Method

  1. Roast the beetroot in the oven until it is soft.

  2. Combine the plant-based milk, beetroot, the spices, dates and nut butter if using in a blender until smooth and creamy.

  3. Pour this mixture into a pan to warm it up. If you prefer not to have small fibres in your drink, you can strain it through a sieve first.

  4. Add the cinnamon stick while you’re warming the beetroot latte on medium heat. Stir so every now and then to prevent burning.

  5. Whip some plant-based milk or even some cream, leave that cold and add it on top of the latte while it’s in your cup.

  6. If you like it sweeter add some maple syrup.

  7. Yum - enjoy!

Beetroot can contain quite a high amount of oxalic acid, so moderation is recommended. As always, when in doubt about particular foods and their health effects, consult your doctor.
