Equipment

  • 3 bowls
  • wire whisk
  • Tall glass

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup ice cubes enough to fill entire glass

Milk layer:

  • ½ cup vanilla soy milk sub any other milk that you like to use
  • 1 tablespoon honey sub maple syrup, or leave the sweetener out if you don't want it as sweet

Butterfly pea tea layer:

Matcha green tea layer:

Instructions
 

  • Fill your glass to the top with ice cubes. The ice cubes help to separate the different colored layers.
  • In a bowl, whisk the honey with the milk until it is completely combined.
    Alternatively, whisk with maple syrup.
    Or, if you don't like your drinks too sweet then leave out the sweetener all together.
    I find that plant based milks are already slightly sweet tasting.
    Pour this over the ice.

For the butterfly pea tea:

  • Whisk the 1 teaspoon of butterfly pea powder with the milk. Slowly pour over the milk layer.

For the matcha green tea:

  • Whisk the 1 teaspoon of matcha green tea powder with the milk. Slowly pour over the butterfly pea tea layer.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Combining the powder with the milk:
¼ cup of milk= thicker and will give you distinct layers
½ cup of milk= thinner and will swirl together more
You can also use a handheld blender or milk frother to blend the milk with the butterfly pea and matcha powders.
