How to make a pink pitaya latte: 2 ways
1: With a milk frother
In a mug, mix together 1 teaspoon pink pitaya powder and 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey. If you want to use collagen, add 1 scoop of collagen to your mug along with a splash of milk. Mix to combine well.
Next, steam 1 cup of milk. If you have an espresso machine, simply use the milk frother. Or, you can buy hand held milk frothers. You could also warm your milk in the microwave, but it won't be frothy.
Once you have your warm milk, pour half into your mug over the pink pitaya mixture and whisk to combine completely.
Pour the other half of your warm milk into your mug. Enjoy!
2: With a blender
If you don't have a milk frother, you can easily make this pink latte with just a blender!
Instead of mixing all the ingredients in the mug, add the 1 teaspoon pink pitaya powder, 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup, and the collagen to a blender. Next, heat your milk either over the stove or in the microwave. Add your warm milk to the blender. Blend until fully combined. You will notice the blender will froth the milk a little bit.
Pour into a mug and enjoy!
Note: make sure you have a heat proof blender!
