Blue Nice Cream
For some unexplained reason, ever since I was a little girl, I loved eating blue food.
I never even cared about the taste- as long as it was blue...
Does anyone remember “Smurf” ice cream?? I mean... what WAS that anyway?? And despite the fact that I loved mint-chip...because it was green and not blue... I would order the smurf “flavored” treat. 🤷🏼♀️
You name it, if it was blue, I would order/buy/eat it! And I’m not talking blueberries or natural blue corn. I mean funky glow in the dark most likely GMO carcinogenic blue #1 food colored sugary goods. I.E: blue fruit roll-ups, Gatorade, blue “razzberry” blow-pops 🍭 and the like.
And then I grew up. I learned something about nutrition. I stopped all that nonsense 👆🏻 (the 80’s ended too. Thank god) and yet- I STILL LOVE BLUE FOOD!
Alas- blue spirulina exists and I can make as much naturally blue hued food as my little heart desires. 💙💙💙
This smoothie bowl (eaten by myself and my daughter- hands photographed here 🖐🏻 🤚🏻) was simply made with four all-natural vegan ingredients. And it was as blue as the sky and the sea!
Blue nice-cream smoothie bowl:
3 frozen bananas
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
1 tbsp @pureraw.de blue spirulina powder
1 tsp maple syrup
Blend in a high speed blender (I used my @vitamix ) and decorate (this is decorated with mini strawberries, blueberries and banana hearts.)
And there you have it!
Anyone else love blue food as much as we do?
