Supercharge Your Morning Coffee: Beetroot & Matcha Latte.Tuesday, April 19, 2016
When I lived in United States my favorite coffee drink was peppermint mocha from Starbucks and during Summer months it was green tea frappucino. When I moved back to Europe my coffee got better but more traditional, you know..same old coffee...that was until I discovered some healthy substituted during pregnancy. I started drinking Matcha Latte's which is rich in antioxidants and has more caffeine then coffee (think wakes you up faster).
I also tried to make Matcha ice-cream and it was delicious - try recipe here.
When visiting fabulous restaurant Brunch & Cake Barcelona I discovered another healthy substitute - Beetroot Latte! Yes ladies! Pink Latte! It does not get any cuter then this! :) I was (of course) skeptical at first as I am not a big fan of beetroot in any form but it's actually quite tasty AND healthy! Win-win situation!
Read on for the recipes...
