This blue spirulina latte is another warm drink you can enjoy when you want something warm. Blue spirulina is so fun to make food with because it creates such a gorgeous blue color! And, it has the added benefits of nutrients like some B vitamins!
I like to add honey to mine to add a little sweetness. If you like yours sweeter, you can add this too, or the sweetener you like to use!
Step 1: Make the blue spirulina paste
Start by mixing ½ of a teaspoon of blue spirulina powder into a splash of milk at the bottom of a mug. This will ensure that there are no powdery chunks of blue spirulina powder in your latte!
Set your mug aside while you steam the milk.
Step 2: Steam your milk
For this you can either use a hand held steamer, or the steamer attachment of your espresso machine.
Another way to get a frothy texture if you don’t have either of those is with a blender! You can skip the first step if you are making it this way. All you have to do is heat your milk in the microwave or over the stove and then add all ingredients into a blender. Blend until it is smooth and no chunks of the blue spirulina powder are left. Pour into your latte and enjoy!
If you want to see the steamer and espresso machine I have at home, you can visit the kitchen gadgets page of my amazon shop account.
Step 3: Pour your blue spirulina latte
If you used the steamed method, you can now pour your steamed milk over the paste you made with the blue spirulina powder and milk.
First, whisk about half of your milk into the paste. Then pour the rest of your milk!
