Craving those colorful lattes you see in Instagram? You don’t need to make a special trip — you can make it yourself at home. For a Pink Latte, just use beet powder! Beet powder is brilliant for its color alone. But it also tastes amazing – even if you’re not a beet lover, you should try beet powder because it is fruitier and less earthy-tasting than the real thing. This caffeine-free pink latte by Rachel Evans is made with beet powder, sweetened by date syrup, and has a wonderful, fruity flavor.
