How to Make Easy Blue Pea Flower Ice Cream

I got into this “food thing” because of my determination to recreate the food of my Malaysian childhood, so it’s always a bit frustrating when my efforts are hampered by the non-availability of critical ingredients in Australia. For 20 years, one such ingredient was something called bunga telang, aka blue pea or blue butterfly flower, which gives a beautiful blue hue to select Malaysian and Southeast Asian dishes.

Now that natural blue pea flower extract is available in powder form courtesy of My Blue Tea, I’m experimenting (in collaboration with the company) with different ways to use them, not just within the realm of traditional Asian cooking but also in everyday recipes.

This is one such example; a simple 3-ingredient ice cream that doesn’t require an ice cream machine.
