Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened milk of choice
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup {or sub with any liquid sweetener of your choice}
  • 1 tablespoon beetroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, beetroot powder, and spices.
  • Add a little bit of the milk to the bowl and stir it until it becomes a paste.
    Mix of maple syrup, beetroot powder, spices and milk
  • Add the paste to a small saucepan and then stir in the remaining milk. Heat over medium high for a few minutes. 

Notes

  • Beetroot powder tastes just like beets, earthy and a little bit sweet. It's just finely ground, dehydrated beets. I used store bought powder, but if you're a keener you can find recipes to make your own.
  • Make sure you get any lumps out of the beetroot powder before you blend it with the other spices. 
  • This is also delicious cold! 
  • If you can only find sweetened milk, I'd make the recipe first without the maple syrup and add before drinking if you think you need it.
