Butterfly Pea Tea Ice Cubes

Posted on 16 April 2019

Blue ice cubes would make any drink exciting, but add a splash of acidic liquid like lemon juice and watch some real magic happen! Makes about 30 ice cubes, depending on tray size.


    • 4 cups very hot water
    • ¾ cup butterfly pea flowers
          • ice cube trays
        • any refreshing beverage, preferably on the clear side


    1. Steep the pea flowers in steaming hot water for about 2 minutes.
    2. Strain the liquid and pour into ice cube trays.
    3. Freeze until solid.
    • For dramatic effect, fill the bottom half of the glass with regular ice cubes to allow for the color change to show.
    • Whatever drink you pour into the glass over the blue ice cubes must be acidulated for the chemical change to take effect. Lemonade, for example, is perfect for this.
    • Find butterfly pea flowers online or at your local health foods store.
