Hey there.

I creatively play with my food with my nine-year-old daughter in Louisville, KY. I hope you find some inspiration and fill your belly.

Yay for Spring!

I have been feeling super creative lately because of the warm weather. Seasonal depression is so R E A L, you guys. I was scrolling through my Pinterest and I just discovered Butterfly Pea Flower Powder, which is what gives this bowl it’s characteristic blue color. Isn’t it just gorge!? A happy mind leads you to discover amazing things.

I’ve also read that you can use Blue Spirulina powder, but I’m hesitant to try it because I’ve had regular Spirulina powder. It’s super nutritious, but honestly—I hated the way it tastes. Soo… one day when I’m feeling adventurous (I’m sure that will be sooner, rather than later) I’m going to give the Blue Spirulina a day in court.

…what is Butterfly Pea Powder?

I actually bought the stuff without really knowing what it was, other than “wow this is really pretty” haha. So, some research for you guys…

  • Traditionally, the powder is used to steep tea in Southeast Asia.

  • It’s recently gained popularity as an all-natural food dye.

  • It’s color changes, depending on the pH of the mixture! To raise the acidity, add in some lemon juice and it turns purple

  • It’s rich in anti-oxidants, just like green tea — yay!

  • No caffeine! This may be your thing, but I’m a coffeeholic

Thanks for reading 。◕ ‿ ◕。

Let me know what else makes your mouth water, and I’ll make a smoothie bowl with that in mind (:
