Spiced Beet and Oat Milk Latte is a warm drink that’s a bit out of the ordinary, but I guarantee you’ll enjoy it. This is a fabulous drink whether you’re cutting back on caffeine or simply looking for a warm, non-dairy pink drink!
My brother recently told me about a recipe he saw online from his favorite store – Kroger – that he wanted to try: ginger-spiced beet and oat milk latte. I was intrigued!
A container of oat milk sat in my fridge and a can of beets in my pantry. Kroger’s recipe calls for fresh beets, and yeah, fresh is always best, but I needed to focus on my pantry.
Spiced Beet and Oat Milk Latte
I got to work and tried this drink! Spiced Beet and Oat Milk Latte won’t replace your morning cup of Joe (at least it won’t mine!) but it makes a great, warm, non-dairy drink to snuggle up with. I didn’t change much about the Kroger recipe aside from using canned beets (much quicker) and different seasonings (you know I love cardamom!).
I was so excited over this tasty, pink drink!
Enjoy this latte in the evening when you’re tired of tea and don’t want to head off to bed caffeinated. Try it in the morning after you’ve had your fill of coffee but still want something warm to relax with. And it’s a pretty shade of pink!
Spiced Beet and Oat Milk Latte gets it froth from the blender, and I topped it with chocolate shavings because, chocolate. Did I mention this drink is pretty and pink?
Beets, which are low in calories, are loaded with good things like folate, fiber, potassium, and are high in fiber.
I’ve read how studies show beets can help reduce blood pressure, help improve endurance and athletic performance, and can decrease inflammation in the body that could put you at risk for heart disease and cancer. I’m not a healthcare professional, for sure, so check with yours if you have more questions about nutrition and overall health.
This recipe doesn’t include a large amount of beets, but at least you know you’ll have a little extra “something good” in your latte!
Try a few of my other recipes that call for beets: my Beet & Orange Juice Morning Sunrise is ideal in the morning. It’s so colorful!
Roasted Beet Hummus might be a bit of a surprise to some, but I’m pretty sure you’ll not only love the great flavor of this hummus, but you’ll love the bright, vibrant color, too.
Another favorite beet recipe of mine is Roasted Beet & Farro Salad. This salad is quite filling thanks to the farro, an ancient grain that reminds me a little of barley.
The next time you’re looking for a warm drink to cozy up to, make yourself a Spiced Beet and Oat Milk Latte. You’ll love it!
