Color for Tropical Blue Smoothie Bowl

This lovely smoothie bowl gets its color from Butterfly Pea Flower powder which is officially known as Clitoria ternatea. I just happened to have a packet of it in the cupboard that I’d been wanting to use for a while. This morning’s breakfast was the perfect opportunity.

If you don’t have Butterfly Pea Flower Powder on hand but now have your heart set on a blue smoothie bowl, just add a handful of fresh or frozen blueberries for a less intense but still very nice blue hue.

I used a few frozen raspberries and blueberries that we picked this summer. There was a fantastic raspberry farm locally and we picked blueberries near Lake Michigan.

At the local grocery the other day there were fantastic sale prices on a lot of things. We got avocados for $.50 each (we bought 20 and will freeze most!) and a pound of raw Spanish peanuts for just $.99. So I have these on hand and need to use them. Oh, and the pineapples were on sale for $.99 as well. We bought lots and let them ripen and then chopped them up and froze most of them.

The process to make this is like any other smoothie bowl. Make the smoothie and garnish. It made a light but satisfying meal.
