*Servings 8

*Prep time 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 coconut will use both flesh and water
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 vanilla pod or 1/2 tsp vanilla powder - optional
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or your preferred natural sweetener
  • 7 dried butterfly pea flowers
  • 1 tsp dried edible lavender optional

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Heat up 1 cup of water and steep the butterfly pea flowers* along with the lavender (which is optional). As it steeps, the water will turn a gorgeous blue color - the longer you steep, the deeper the color. 

  • Next, open the coconut. First, carefully make 2-3 holes on the coconut to get out the coconut water.
  • Then open the coconut shell and collect the flesh (coconut meat).

  • If using a vanilla pod, scrape the seeds from half of it (or all of the seeds if you like a very pronounced vanilla flavor). This will help your milk take on a dessert-like flavor and makes for a wonderful treat. 

  • First, add the coconut flesh to a blender/food processor and blitz to crumbs. Then add the rest of ingredients and blend until smooth. This can take a minute or two to fully blend together for creamy coconut milk. **

  • Pour into a glass container of your choice ( or straight into some cups, to serve).

  • Enjoy fresh! You can serve your blue milk over ice or even with tapioca pearls or you can keep this milk in the fridge for up to 3 days.
