Superfood Blueberry Low Carb G&T Recipe

by Hannah Single October 11, 2018

Superfood cocktails!  Not only does using Nexba tonic water mean you can enjoy G&Ts without any added sugar, but this one even contains superfood ingredients! Blueberries are absolutely packed with antioxidants (classifying them as a superfood) but if you’re feeling adventurous, try adding in a teaspoon of butterfly pea powder. What is butterfly pea powder you may ask….

Butterfly pea powder is made by grinding organic butterfly pea flowers. It’s health benefits are similar to that of green tea... antioxidants, increased immunity, supporting heart health and boosting metabolism. Aside from the health benefits, mixing butterfly pea powder with lemon juice creates a beautiful blue/purple (we’ve included a photo with and without butterfly pea so you can see how dramatically the colour changes). It’s the perfect natural alternative to food colouring!
