I recently came upon a wonderful blog: Dolly and Oatmeal. Beautiful food and photography. The recipe below was adapted from her recipe.
This recipe is simple and tasty.. and I had beet powder laying around so it made this all the more exciting :) I know, who just has beet powder hanging out in the kitchen?! ;) If you don't have beet powder, it makes no difference!
One tip: you can buy coconut butter or make your own. I had to buzz mine extra long because it seemed to still have flakes vs creamy texture. It's definitely cheaper to buy coconut flakes and use your food processor.
This serves 1 person:
3/4 cup filtered boiling water
1 rooibos tea bag
3/4 cup unsweetened soy or almond milk
1 tablespoon coconut butter
1 teaspoon coconut nectar, maple syrup, or stevia (I used maple syrup since we make it each spring)
1/2 teaspoon beet powder (optional), more for dusting
Add tea bag to boiling water; steep for 5-6 minutes.
Meanwhile heat milk until steaming. remove teabag, add rooibos tea, steamed milk, coconut butter, maple syrup (or sweetener of choice), and beet powder (if using) to a high-speed blender. Blend on high for 1 minute until mixture is combined and frothy.
Pour into a mug, dust with beet powder (if using) and enjoy.
