The stunning hue comes from butterfly pea flowers, a potent but mild-tasting herb that fights oxidation and glycation and helps mitigate inflammation thanks to the presence of anthocyanins and quercetin. In short, it helps protect your skin from damage from the inside-out. It's naturally caffeine-free and has such a subtle earthy taste. I purchased my butterfly pea flower tea from Edible Beauty, but it's also available elsewhere online.
Next, I used a vegan collagen powder. (We at Peaceful Dumpling aren't shy about our love for plant-based collagen-boosting goodness!) Fortunately for us, there is an increasing number of vegan collagen powders on the market. Options include Anima Mundi Plant-Based Collagen and Edible Beauty Native Beauty Plant-Based Collagen. The powder adds a pleasant creaminess to the latte. Sip & Enjoy!
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1 tablespoon dried butterfly pea flowers
