DelighTeas Golden Milk Latte with Beet Root Powder

When you go to the cafe a Golden Milk latte can cost you around $3.50-$5.00.
But, you can make them at home cheaper and the way you like it.
You can get this 5 oz for $12.90, that gives you about 50 lattes.

Golden Milk Latte-

Beet Powder-

I have been trying to loose weight and eat and drink healthier.  I have been adding beet powder to some foods and drinks.  I find you really can't taste the beets, but it does add a sweetness.

Their recipe:
Suggested Use for Vegan Tea Latte: Place 1/2 tsp of Golden Milk Turmeric Tea Latte into a blender; Add 1 tbsp of almond butter, 1 cup of water and 2 Medjool dates; Blend until smooth; Pour into a small saucepan, warm over medium heat and enjoy. Can be served cold or warm.

I make my lattes really simple.  I use oat milk or soy milk or almond milk to coconut milk- depends on what is on sale.  Although oat milk is my favorite- it is deep and rich in flavoring.
I put milk 8-10 oz oat milk in the frother, add 1 tsp golden turmeric, 1/4 tsp beet powder, and froth.  I don't add a sweetener since I am watching my weight, but you are welcome too.  I used to love maple syrup in mine.
My frother mixes, froths, and heats.  I add ice in mine in the summer to cool it off.  It is so delicious!!

I love the taste and color!!  I find playing with your tea is a great way to discover new drinks.  You never know when you will have a hit on your hands.  Don't be afraid to try new things. 

This Golden Milk has great flavor. And I find I love the black pepper notes that come through.  The ginger comes through nicely too.
