A latté is known as the name of a drink made with milk, traditionally with a shot of espresso coffee and in Italy it is referred to as a milky coffee.  But for those not wanting to endure caffeine and want to enjoy something healthier there is a range of Australian made, Vedic powders that deliver a 100% natural, vegan friendly, sugar & gluten free alternative;

Turmeric Powder (yellow), Beetroot Blend Velvet Powder (red), Matcha Powder (green).

Ayurvedic philosophy follows the ancient medicine of India, which uses authentic herbs and spices to cleanse the body, boost the immune system to help defend against disease and keep the mind, body and spirit calm and in balance.

These three Vedic powders follow age-old culture and each hold many individual unique health benefits which are easily found by adding ½ teaspoon in a cup mixed with your choice of milk.  For best results, to make your alternative latté also dairy free try using almond, cashew, soy, macadamia or even coconut milk to get that latté effect. These alternative healthy lattés can be enjoyed day and night, hot or cold, adding powerful health benefits to your diet, rich in antioxidants and taste delicious too.
