Red Velvet Latte

Red Velvet Latte




I don’t often stray from my morning cup of black tea (I’m loving this tea and this tea right now) but when I do, it’s for a red velvet latte (caffeine free, of course). 

I was so here for the red velvet craze that spread across the world in late 2014 – early 2015. I know a lot of people hated it, but I absolutely loved it. Give me all of the red velvet cupcakes, cookies and pancakes, please!

So when I stumbled across ‘velvet latte’ powder at The Source in Noosa, I immediately stocked up. The smell of the powder alone was enough to make me buy it, but then I noticed that it sparkled. I still don’t know which ingredient exactly makes it sparkle, but I don’t even care. Who doesn’t want a sparkly latte?

Today I’m going to show you how I make my red velvet latte using this powder, but if you want to make yours from scratch, you can by mixing beetroot powder, turmeric, cardamom, ginger, vanilla and cayenne pepper – all of which you can buy from The Source!

Let me know if you give this red velvet latte a go.

Some days, if I have an extra strong sweet tooth, I’ll add in a teaspoon of cacao powder to make it a red velvet hot chocolate. It’s so yum!

Are you a red velvet fan?
