We have two Clitoria Terbatea, or also known simply as blue ternatea, plants at home. It is famous to be rich in vitamin c. This vine has also been consumed for centuries as a brain booster, memory enhancer, anti-stress and a calmative agent.


Blue Ternatea is used as a natural food coloring. In traditional cooking, blue ternatea flowers are squeezed for their blue extract to naturally color desserts in blue and purple.


For today's breakfast, we have squeezed the blue extract to boil rice and make for an amazingly colorful blue rice.


Now, I have a colorful plate, with a vegetable salad side dish!

Hi, Lovely!💙 @gingbabida

Where can I find this incredible miracle plant/herb?
I read the source you provided and checked off a handful of conditions it would help me with.

I believe it's a tropical plant.

You like me to send some to you? Hehehe! 😂😁

I would love that!
The heat would dry it out at your airport and then freeze during it's travels before arriving to me in the Midwest!😀

I think it is best to be sundried before shipping, to prevent molds.

Where will I send it?

You are such a sweetheart to offer sending to me, Ging!!! Let me see if it's available in the USA and I'll let you know if not @gingbabida 💙

Please send me a friend request on Discord to @ninahaskin#9858 in case we ever want to talk offline✍

Hahaha! I don't have a Discord.

Oh, darn. Have you thought to download it someday?

Sure. I can download it anytime. 😊

Thank you 😊

Such a simple, yet impressive dish! I never heard of this lovely flower before and I am totally intrigued. I really appreciate you are sharing it with us ; I am always happy to learn something new 💙😊💙


Maybe because it grows mainly in the tropics. Thank you for appreciating, Lena @lenasveganliving. 😍

I am familiar with some tropical flowers, but there is so much more to discover! Always a pleasure my Dear 😍

Oh yes! There are lots of fascinating things to discover. What a wonderful world! Thanks for the Creator who made everything beautiful.

I totally agree 😍

Ooh how pretty! It really is fun to find all these different plants that can make your food such vibrant colors in a way that is extremely nourishing, as well!

Oh yes! It's pleasant in the eyes and it's nutritious!!! 😍

This is fascinating @ginbabida. Blue rice for breakfast really grabbed my attention! I wonder if it would colour other things blue. Like soap. I like using natural (food and spice) colourants in my soaps.

I think it would color other things, but I don't know how long would it last. 🤔
