Beets have a very impressive nutritional profile, making them a great choice for getting some essential vitamins and minerals— especially magnesium and iron. Sprinkle a little bit of cacao powder to top off this beet latte and it becomes an amazing (caffeine- free) afternoon drink that tastes ever- so- slightly like Nutella.

Preparation

  1. Cut off stems of beet and chop beet in half; add each half to a juicer, one at a time, and collect beet juice. It should make about 3 ounces of beet juice. Pour into the bottom of a mug (or clear glass if you have one; this drink is beautiful!).
  2. Heat hazelnut milk in a small saucepan on low heat on the stove until you see steam rising from the pan. Add cacao powder and almond extract and stir until fully incorporated.
  3. Pour milk over beet juice and sprinkle with cacao powder. Enjoy!
