It has been a few months, but I am finally participating in #FoodieExtravangaza again! In Foodie Extravaganza, we celebrate food holidays by cooking and baking together with the same ingredient or theme each month.
Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla is hosting this time and decided to feature May the Fourth with Star Wars inspired recipes! Other foods celebrated in May include Strawberries, Asparagus, Hamburgers, Coconut Cream Pie, Vanilla Pudding, and Enchiladas.
I am joining today with a recipe for Galaxy’s Edge Inspired Blue Milk!
Galaxy’s Edge Inspired Blue Milk
After mentioning this month’s Foodie Extravaganza theme to the family, Claire immediately requested blue milk. It was always her favorite treat when we visited Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
The Milk Stand in Galaxy’s Edge has two options- A New Hope blue milk from Banthas or The Last Jedi-inspired green milk from Thala-sirens. The blue has a more fruity taste, while the green has citrus and tropical characteristics.
It has now been over 2 years since our last time in Galaxy’s Edge, so this Blue Milk will not be the perfect match, just more of an inspiration. I kept the dairy-free coconut and rice milk plant base found in the park, but adjusted the combination of fruit a few times until we came up with a Claire-approved version.
To pair with the blue milk, I also made a few Melt in the Mouth Shortbread Stamped Cookies from Veena Azmanov for a fun pairing. I divided the dough into three equal portions.
I left one plain vanilla and added a little Matcha (green tea powder) and cocoa powder to the other two before rolling out and cutting with Star Wars Cookie Stamps.
A Few Blue Milk Tips
For the vibrant blue color, I added 2-3 drops of Chefmaster Neon Brite Blue food coloring. I have tried natural butterfly pea flower powder before, but the acidity from the fruit causes the color to be a more bluish-purple.
The version at Galaxy’s Edge includes a dragon fruit puree, but I personally liked the blend of passion fruit, pineapple, watermelon, and lime over on Ashley Crafted. These items were also more readily available.
To create the thickened, slush-like consistency, I blended in about 1 1/2 cups (225 grams) ice until smooth and frosty. Adjust more or less ice based on personal preference.
A small splash of vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons (25 grams) sugar helped bring all the flavors together. I used unsweetened coconut milk and rice milk. If either are sweetened, don’t add the sugar at first and slowly adjust flavors to taste.
Serve the Galaxy’s Edge Inspired Blue Milk immediately after blending. With time, the ingredients will separate. I have refrigerated leftovers for up to a day and quickly mixed together with a spoon to combine again before drinking.
