These red velvet cupcakes are just so pretty, and guess what? They taste just as good as they look and are full of nutritious ingredients! Nutra Organics Velvet Latte powder is used to naturally tint these gorgeous cupcakes. The Ayurvedic Chai spices in the mix provide a perfect harmonious blend of flavour and nutrition. This recipe is also super easy and sure to turn heads at any occasion. You can always skip the whipped cream, if you don’t have time, they will still taste great on their own!
