This stunning rosewater latte is luxurious and relaxing, with a magical dusty pink color.
This latte was inspired by a rose and beet latte I tried at a trendy gluten-free and vegetarian restaurant in Paris. After the first sip of that latte, I knew I had to recreate the recipe at home so I could enjoy it all the time.
With a light floral aroma, creamy coconut milk, and a beautiful pink color, this latte feels extra fancy and is perfect for when you want to treat yourself to something special.
It’s also so easy to make.
Ingredients (and Tools) You Need To Make A Rose and Beet Latte
Rosewater has been a popular ingredient in Middle Eastern cooking for centuries, thanks to its delicate floral note that lends a beautiful flavor to both sweet and savory dishes. It has many health benefits, such as anti-inflammatory properties, and Vitamin C. Rosewater also has a very calming floral aroma that makes it great for reducing stress and anxiety.
You can find rosewater here, or in the ethnic aisle of your local grocery store.
Beet powder is an all natural food dye and what gives this latte it’s beautiful pink color. It doesn’t have a strong beet flavor at all, and can be used to add color to frosting, cakes and smoothies. It has all the same powerful health benefits as beets and can help lower inflammation, support liver health, and the digestion of healthy fats. If you don’t have beet powder you can leave it out, it won’t change the flavor of the latte!
Full-fat Coconut Milk
Coconut milk makes for a nice and creamy foamed latte. I used a 50/50 ratio of coconut milk and water to make sure the rose water isn’t overpowered by the coconut flavor. You can substitute almond milk if you prefer, but we preferred the flavor combination of the rosewater and coconut.
Adding some maple syrups add some sweetness to the latte, without any refined sugar.
Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean Powder
Vanilla pairs beautifully with rose and adds a touch more sweetness.
Milk Frother or High Speed Blender
Using a milk frother or high speed blender to mix the ingredients for 30 seconds to 60 seconds will give the latte the beautiful foam on top. You can also simply heat the ingredients in a saucepan on the stove, and use a handheld whisk to create a bit of foam.Print
