Beetroot Rose Lattes

You know when you meet someone and you automatically feel like you’ve been friends for the entirety of your life? That’s what happened to me the minute I met Kaylee. She’s a woman after my own heart – she has talent seeping out of her pores – and I’m so excited to have her on board here at L&L headquarters. She’ll be popping in once a month to share some of her incredible recipes. Enjoy!

Hello Lark & Linen readers! Kaylee here from the Blondielocks, a lifestyle blog inspiring you to “curate a life that is juuust right.” I’ve been a long time follower of Jacquelyn’s blog so to say that I am excited to be able to share a monthly post here is an understatement and I am so grateful to Jacquelyn for allowing me to do so!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (can you believe it!?) and I admittedly love all things love…and pink! Typically, I am all about the sweets when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Cookies, chocolate, candy, you name it and I enjoy it. However, this year, I wanted to change things up a bit and challenge myself to make something healthy and V-Day approved. I’ve noticed beetroot lattés popping up at local cafés and been so intrigued by them. Though, to be honest, I was sceptical that beets could actually taste good in latte format. Skepticism aside, I decided to go forth (go froth?) and whip up a batch and guess what? After making these pretty pink drinks myself I can completely see why they’re all the rage. When made with homemade almond milk, these lattés are sweet, frothy, subtly floral and absolutely delicious. Happy (healthy) Valentine’s Day!
