Butterfly Pea Icy Poles

Home & LivingKid's Partykids

Kids will love making these magic icy poles.  Butterfly pea flowers can be made into a beautiful natural food dye.  You can grow these yourself of buy packets of the dried flowers.  If you mix the butterfly pea flower extract with acid foods it becomes purple, if you mix it with alkaline foods it remains a unique blue.
