Vegan café Matcha Mylkbar in Melbourne, Australia is offering a blue latte which has been appropriately dubbed the “Smurf Latte”.
The drink contains lemon, ginger agave and coconut milk, and gets its hue from a teaspoon of something called E3 live blue algae powder – whatever that is.
The taste has been described as quite sweet and “soury”, although it’s difficult to pin down because everyone seems to describe it differently.
Even though the Smurf Latte is not officially on the cafe’s menu, the social media attention has resulted in loads of orders. That’s not surprising since it’s a proven fact that changing the color of food is a surefire way to draw attention.
