This super thick Coconut Beetroot Latte is reminiscent of a hot cup of chocolate just minus the chocolate and the milk. Ehh. I know it’s a stretch but I’m telling you it’s good and will hit the spot on a cold night. It’s also made with nutrient dense beets and other healthy spices like turmeric and ginger. This tastes so good that you’ll forget that you are drinking beets and it’s good for you!
How to make a beetroot latte.
This is a ridiculously simple recipe. Seriously, dump all the ingredients into a saucepan. Heat. Done!
The beetroot powder makes this recipe super easy. There’s no messy prep, cooking or cleaning. I like to eat beets and certainly like the health benefits that come with them but boy, they are messy.
Beets turn everything magenta including all my white plates, counters and serving ware. While I’m not ready to give up on beets entirely, beetroot powder does allow me to enjoy them more often in drinks or soups without the hassle.
I found my beetroot powder at Sprouts but I’ve found a few brands online. Sari Foods and Frontier Natural are both high quality organic brands. I also use beetroot powder in my AIP Char Sui Pork recipe so you have multiple recipes to use this powder.
What are the beetroot latte health benefits?
Beets are nutrient dense, helps fight inflammation, and a good source of fiber. Since I included a bunch of spices in this Coconut Beetroot recipe, you’re not just cooking with beet powder. There are also a lot of health benefits that come from the honey, turmeric, collagen peptides, cinnamon and ginger. They are:
- Fight nausea (thank you ginger)
- Reduces cholesterol
- Help prevent cancer
- Reduce bone loss
- Improve hair, skin and nails
Healthy, blah, blah, blah – Is it good?
Yes! I swear. It’s think and slightly sweet and definitely coconut-y. It has some warmth from all the spices and beets, which reminds me of an adult version of hot chocolate. My non-AIP eating husband loved it! He drank the entire thing before he even thought to ask what was in it. I told him beets and he didn’t believe me. He said it tasted too good. Haha!
