The Best Dairy Free Red Velvet Latte Recipe using Superfoods! Hello Loves! It has been WAAAAAY to long. To sweeten our silence, we created this Red Velvet Latte aka. “Lovers Latte”! It is gluten free (as everything here is), dairy free, dye free, and PACKED with nutrients. We promise to never leave you hanging for that long again.
December and January were abundant months. I was traveling in Australia and got home right before Christmas, then from New Years we jumped right into our Cleansing with Food workshops… And we took the holidays to really enjoy our time with our family. We hope you can forgive us! During this time we got super inspired from all my travels – there are LOTS of delicious recipes about to come your way! Just like this Red Velvet Latte!
To make this red velvet color, we used beetroot powder. Beetroot powder is a great source of natural energy. It is high in antioxidants, and extremely beneficial for our blood. You can read more about the benefits of beets from Dr Mercola HERE.
While traveling in Australia I discovered my love for beetroot powered. They added this ingredient in so many things, especially sprinkled on bowls and in lattes! It is naturally sweet and extremely mild in flavor. You can sweeten it up or make it savory. I loved adding it into this creamy latte for a different boost of energy first thing in the morning!
