A latte may sound like a cheat day drink, but this pretty pink tea latte featuring Numi Tea’s Nspire Chocolate Silk Pu-erh feels indulgent without the guilt. Beetroot, the secret ingredient to this Insta-worthy beverage, provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich properties, and oat milk provides natural fiber and iron while staying low in calories and fat.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 3/4 cup Water, tap, well
  • 1/2 Beets, Baby Red, Steamed and Peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups Oat Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Tahini
  • 2 cups Tea, black, brewed, prepared with tap water

DIRECTIONS

1 Steep the Chocolate Silk Pu-erh sachets in 3/4 cup boiling water for 15 minutes, covered. Remove and discard the tea sachets. This will result in a tea concentrate – the base for your pink latte.
2 Puree the beetroot with 3/4 cup oat milk and strain through a fine mesh sieve. You won't need the beetroot pulp for this recipe, but you can set it aside (store it in the fridge) to add to your oatmeal or morning smoothie.
3 Combine the beetroot and milk liquid mixture with the tea concentrate. Add 1/2 teaspoon tahini and blend with an immersion blender until smooth and frothy. Pour into a serving cup and top with remaining 3/4 cup oat milk, foamed.
4 Sweeten to taste, if necessary. Enjoy!
