Some of you may have caught on to my love of colorful beverages by now . . .
Just look at that beautiful color! And the best part? Blue Butterfly Pea Flowers (Clitoria ternatea) are packed with antioxidants, stress-relieving properties, and anti-inflammatory effects. What's not to love?
Throw in some cooling and calming peppermint, magnesium-rich (sleep promoting!) sunflower seeds, and vitamin c and antioxidant-rich blueberries and you have yourself one doubly blue brew that is wholly magical and delicious.
This Blue Moon Milk is:
Packed with healthy nutrient dense ingredients.
Soothing, calming, relaxing.
Creamy and satisfying.
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, nut-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free.
Tips for making Blueberry Moon Milk:
The peppermint extract can be replaced with a food-grade peppermint essential oil.
For a sugar-free version, this sugar-free sweetener works great at replacing maple syrup.
To Make Iced Blue Moon Milk:
Blend all ingredients PLUS the addition of maple syrup/sweetener of choice.
Do not heat. Simply strain, then pour over ice.
