Carrot Lattes Are Pretty Much What They Sound Like

You may have concluded that, when an Australian coffee shop brought us avocado lattes the other week, the land down under had reached its coffee-poured-into-produce limit. Turns out, its baristas were just getting started.

Apparently not to be outdone, the creative geniuses behind the counter at another Australian cafe — Local’s Corner, in Seaforth, New South Wales — have now presented us with a carrot latte, which is, yes, a latte served in a carrot.

After experimenting with their own version of an avocado latte, the millennial-pleasing mash-up made famous by Truman Cafe, in Melbourne, Australia, Local’s Corner posted an image to Facebook of what appears to be a hollowed-out carrot stump filled with coffee and prettily poured steamed milk.

“How about carrot latte,” the shop mused in the caption, not bothering with a question mark (or to go right ahead and dub it a “carro-latte”), but including a winky-face emoticon.

Local’s Corner didn’t stop there. Oh no. Just a few days later, the shop posted another image of a boundary-pushing latte. This one? In an orange. (An ora-latte?)

“With enough coffee and vitamin C I feel like everything will be alright...” the cafe shared.

What’s next? A latte in a strawberry? A green pepper? Some may scorn this trend, but personally, I celebrate the ingenuity.
