Carrot Lattes Are Pretty Much What They Sound Like

Baristas in Australia would like to present you with a carrot latte, which is, yes, a latte served in a carrot.

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.
