Nourishing beet latte.

Although I am not one of those women who adore pink “everything”, I still fancy cute pink drinks. This warm beet latte is a fabulous and beautifully vibrant way to start your day, if you are looking for alternatives for your daily cup of coffee. I am not a huge coffee drinker, I almost never drink more than two cups a day, but I try to limit my intake as much as possible. So when I saw all these pink lattes appearing in my Istafeed, I was immediately intrigued and had to try it out till I came up with this version completely adapted to my taste.

However this pink latte may not be for everyone. Beetroot does have a bit of an earthy taste, so honestly, you have to love beetroot juice if you want to like this latte.
