You are privileged one because you always have some options. In case, you are forced to study, play, eat or drink then you are no longer a free person. You are still away from your freedom. Think, if you wanted to be a player/sports person but you were forced to be a doctor since your childhood then nothing is good in your life. If you will become a doctor then also you will never be happy because you are not that person what you wanted to be. The same thing may happen if you are served same coffee or tea every day and nobody asks you for alternatives to such drink. It’s really boring. Is it not true? So here is the best alternative for coffee or tea – Beetroot latte (or beet latte).
I have tried beetroot latte a few years back when I was in Delhi. But after that, I never tried this. In last few years I never got bored with tea or coffee. It is because of my life which was never streamlined. So tea or coffee was never my regular drink when I was in Delhi or Mumbai. There were a few consecutive days when I never try coffee or tea but at the same times, there were so many days when I drank alteast 7-8 cups of tea/coffee.
But when it became a regular drink then I always look for something different atleast whenever I get a chance. I often try cold coffee, iced tea, different types of hot beverages which are available at nearby restaurants. But beetroot latte is not something that I can get easily from a local restaurant. I mean I do not even know whether it is available at any restaurant in Kolkata. So sometimes I try to make this at home. So naturally not all my previous attempt were successful, sometimes it was good, sometimes it was just okay but this time it was really super delicious what I never expected. That is why I am sharing this beet latter recipe with my readers.
Beetroot is such a vegetable what you simply can not add to any dish because it will make that red in color, haha. So it only goes with some specific dishes. I also do prefer raw beetroot in salad and often try beetroot fries as a snack. Did you try this too?
This time I have made beet latte (or yummy beetroot latte) after a few months. I actually bought some beetroot vegetable for making a vegetable salad but those were more than I needed. So I thought to make beetroot latte again. My last few beet latte drinks were not as good as this time what I made. It was creamy, healthy, yummy & smartest summer drink.
