Turkish Delight & Matcha Lattes

I have a small (border line, obsession) with making vegan lattes that do not involve coffee…

Since my first chia latte a few years ago, I have been *latte-ing* the shit out of everything. Spinach lattes, cauliflower lattes even banana lattes – not recommended. Anything you can add hot streamed soya milk too pretty much qualifies!

There is something quite feminine about the Vegan Turkish Delight Latte, with its adorable bright pink colour and floral fragrant notes. Great for the ladies, or anyone who loves turkish delight (boys welcome to, of course).

Then there is the (Mighty) Matcha latte, now where would I be without you…my first latte of the day. A gentle release of caffeine but without the ‘crash’ which you often experience an hour or so after drinking coffee.

I hope you have some fun making these vibrant lattes. Please feel free to share any latte making tips, I’m always keen to learn.

Peace, love and lattes

Ingredients:  

Turkish Delight Latte: 

  • 1 Cup of Organic Unsweetened Soya Milk
  • 1 tsp Beetroot Powder
  • 1-2 tsp of Maple Syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  • half a tsp of Rose Water

Matcha Latte:

  • 1 Cup of Organic Unsweetened Soya Milk
  • 1/4 tsp of Matcha Green tea powder (I use Ceremonial Grade A)
  • 1 tsp Wheatgrass powder *optional – I use this for colour*

Directions: 

Turkish Delight latte:

  1. Place the beetroot powder and maple syrup into a cup and mix into a thick paste, then add the rose water and mix again.
  2. On a medium heat slowly warm the soya milk, until just boiling.
  3. Remove from the heat and pour into a jug. Use a hand-held electric milk frother (or frother of  choice) for a couple of seconds – try to avoid to many bubbles. Once you have reached your desired consistency, pour over the paste. Alternatively if not using a milk frother pour hot soya milk straight over the paste.

Matcha Latte:

  1. Place the matcha into a cup and add a small amount of water, mix to form a lose paste.
  2. Follow directions 2 and 3 above.

– Enjoy –
