This beautiful blue latte is not only Instagram-worthy but it's absolutely delicious! The blue powder comes from butterfly pea flowers and can be used to make a caffeine-free herbal tea. The plant is most common in South East Asian countries, but due to its popularity, it can now be found in many countries around the world. Pro tip: scale up the recipe to make a large batch of the powdered mix for quick lattes on-demand!

This was super fun to try and really yummy! Has a sorta light herbal flavor too me. We had to order the butterfly pea powder off Amazon, and it came in a nice small bag (I was worried it would come in a giant bag!). We used coconut sugar instead of regular sugar and that worked great to add some mild sweetness. It’s a nice change from classic coffee lattes. Thanks for another great recipe!

I'd never heard of this butterfly pea powder before so when I saw your recipe I was keen to give it a try. I loved the subtle flavour combined with the spices and the colour is truly amazing! 🤩 With foamed milk on top it is akin to a smurf exactly!

super yummy! Added a bit of monk fruit sweetener since I wanted a bit more of a sugary taste.
