Magical Color Changing Ice Cubes
made with Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Tea
It is fun and easy to make magical color changing ice cubes, when you use all natural butterfly pea flower tea.
When the blue ice cubes come in contact with lemon, the lemonade changes from yellow to a pretty purplish pink color.
As the ice melts, the color changes more.
This isn’t simply the colors mixing, but is a chemical reaction between the blue tea and the acid in the lemonade.
The color is completely natural, since it is what happens when you brew tea from butterfly pea flowers.
It doesn’t have caffeine and the taste is very mild.
This is super fun as a party drink for many different party themes.
Use it for a unicorn party, an out of this world space party, a luau, baby shower or anything else you dream up.
Have some fun, when you make your lemonade change colors with this magical butterfly pea flower ice.
You can turn it into a STEM project about chemical reactions or your kids can simply enjoy the fun of a drink with color changing ice.
