Purple Ube Pistachio Latte – with Willa’s Oat Milk

A vibrant, beautiful at-home latte made with Organic Oat Milk and real ingredients

Jump to Recipe


What is Ube? Ube is a purple yam native to the Philippines. It is related to the orange sweet potatoes we see in the US, but it has a bright purple flesh with a milder flavor and hints of vanilla. The vibrant purple color comes from high amounts of anthocyanins, a potent antioxidant.

When combined, pistachios and ube offer a flavor profile made in heaven. For the perfect foamy, creamy, plant-based latte I used Willa’s Kitchen NEW Barista Oat Milk. Unlike most plant-based ‘barista-style’ milks, Willa’s doesn’t rely on added phosphates to get that foamy texture. In fact, you’ll never find dipotassium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, or inflammatory rapeseed oil (ugh!) in any of Willa’s Organic Oat Milks. <<Read more about what makes Willa’s better here>>

Oat milk offers a great creaminess without heaviness. Plus, it’s dairy-free and vegan! This Purple Ube Pistachio Latte has some sugar; but in the context of a healthy diet it can be a feel-good indulgence.

Purple Ube Pistachio Latte with Willa's Oat Milk by Kate Daugherty


If you’re looking for an effortless, instagrammable type of latte- here it is. This Purple Ube Pistachio latte is both beautiful and delicious.

It works both hot or iced, depending on your preference. I use the Nespresso Milk Frother for that perfect hot or cold foam (my favorite feature) that sits on top of a latte. Make the pistachio syrup ahead of time, and you can enjoy this latte in five minutes flat.

such a pretty latte!
