Mermaid Lemonade Recipe - with superfoods!
Move over food colouring! Superfoods are a great way to add nutrients into your (or your child’s) diet, as well as creating beautiful, vibrant hues. For this brightly coloured mermaid lemonade recipe, we have used butterfly pea powder.
If you’re not familiar with butterfly pea powder (don’t worry, must people aren’t) let us give you the lowdown... It is made by grinding organic butterfly pea flowers with health benefits similar to that of green tea. It is rich in antioxidants, promotes healthy immune function, supports heart health and can help to boost metabolism. An alternative superfood powder you can use for this recipe is blue spirulina. It will be more blue in colour than purple but equally nutritious and just as pretty!
1-2 tsp butterfly pea powder
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 handful ice cubes
2 cups Nexba lemon sparkling infusion
Lemon slices and fresh strawberries (to garnish)
1. Firstly combine butterfly pea powder and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl, mix until well combined.
2. Place ice cubes in two glasses and evenly distribute butterfly pea-lemon mix between the glasses.
3. Pour Nexba lemon sparkling infusion on top and garnish with lemon slices and berries (optional). 4. Serve and enjoy.
