Easy Pink Mocha

Are you looking to add some color to your morning coffee routine? Then, make this easy, healthyish, delicious, and dairy-free pink mocha right in the comfort of your own home!

Easy Pink Mocha Latte.

Pink lattes, pink macchiatos, and pink drinks seem to be making the rounds at several coffee houses and bakeries these days.

So, I figured I would share my spin on the infamous pink drink. And, that is why this super easy and dairy-free Pink Mocha is adorning a small spot on the interwebs today.

Why do I love this Pink Mocha?

I love this Pink Mocha and have a hard time trying not to guzzle it down in record time, even when it’s hot.

This Pink Mocha is:

  • Delicious,
  • Dairy-free,
  • Healthyish,
  • Packs a hefty nutrition punch,
  • Contains no refined sugar,
  • Contains no food coloring,
  • Easy to make,
  • Ready in 5 minutes, and
  • Has only 5 ingredients!
5 ingredients needed to make pink mocha.

What are the ingredients in this Pink Mocha?

As I mentioned before, that ruby tint you see is not food coloring. That ruby tint packs a hefty nutrition punch. And, if you guessed that that ruby tint was from beets, you nailed it!

Yes, this Pink Mocha is a delicious and healthy blend of the following five ingredients:

  1. Coffee
    I used a shot of espresso in this recipe. But, there has been many a time when I brewed a very strong cup of coffee and used that instead of the espresso.
  2. Beetroot
    I used a very small beet. For this recipe, the beetroot does not need to be cooked. We will be using it raw, which cuts down on the time needed to make this mocha.
  3. Chocolate Sauce
    When making this Pink Mocha, a good quality chocolate sauce is a must. I am not being paid to say this currently, but, my favorite chocolate sauce is Monin Dark Chocolate. My daughter introduced me to Monin, and it has kept me from spending an arm and a leg on coffee from various coffee establishments. Now, you could also use a white chocolate sauce if you prefer.
  4. Almond milk
    I prefer almond milk, but you could use oat milk or soy. If lactose is your friend, feel free to use cow milk in making this as well.
  5. Maple syrup
    This was what I used to sweeten the beet and milk mixture. You can use any other sweetener you may have on hand. Or, if you feel the chocolate sauce adds enough sweetener, then please feel free to leave this out.

Step By Step Instructions to make this pink drink:

This Pink Mocha is so quick and easy to make!

First, wash the beetroot and peel off just half of it.

Peeling raw beetroot

Then, grate the peeled portion so you have about 1 tablespoon of fresh, raw, grated beets.

grating raw beet

Add the grated beetroot and the maple syrup to the milk. I used a mason jar with a lid, so I could shake it around well, but you can use a glass and just stir with a spoon. Then, set this aside.

Adding grated beetroot to almond milk

In a mug of your choice, add the chocolate sauce

Add chocolate sauce to cup

Then, add in the espresso shot and stir well so the chocolate sauce mixes into it.

Add coffee to chocolate then add in beet milk.

Finally, using a strainer (so the chunk bits of beetroot do not make it into the mocha) pour the beet and maple almond milk through the strainer into the coffee with the chocolate sauce. And, you have a delicious and nutritious, dairy-free mocha!

If you like to (by the way, this is optional) you can top this with some dairy-free whipped cream and drizzle on any remaining beet milk on top of it and this Pink Mocha is ready to enjoy!

  1. Wow, a dairy-free pink mocha sounds absolutely intriguing! I’m always up for trying new things, especially when it comes to my morning coffee routine. It sounds like the perfect way to add some fun and color to my day while still keeping it healthiest.

  2. Not only is it healthy and dairy-free, but it’s absolutely delicious. I love that I can make it at home and enjoy a coffee shop-worthy drink anytime!

  3. I have to admit that beets and coffee didn’t really sound like something I’d be interested in, but I made it for my daughter because it was pink and she loved it! So of course I had to try. This is absolutely delicious!

  4. I know you’ve beet-ified quite a few recipes over the years, Shashi…but I never thought I would see beets in coffee! What a cool way to put a festive spin on coffee. And I had to chuckle at the “healthyish” comment. That basically describes us perfectly! We try to be healthy…but there is always an “ish” hanging out nearby. Haha! Happy Valentine’s Day, my friend!

  5. This sounds intriguing. I feel like beets have a strong flavor, not just a pretty pink color – will have to try!

  6. What a delicious dessert drink with a fabulous ruby colour! I love beets, but I don’t think I’ve ever used them in drinks (perhaps just in a smoothie.) This looks and sounds absolutely lovely!
