The lemonade turns purple in color from blue when lemon is added due to butterfly pea powder. This is an easy and fun recipe to make with kids! It gives them a science experiment and cooking class in one! This recipe uses a homemade simple syrup, fresh lemons, and butterfly pea powder for the magic.

Then remove from heat and cool completely.
