Making the biscuit mixture
Blue Butterfly Pea Tea using Blue Tea powder.
Rice malt syrup is completely fructose free and made from 100% organic brown rice. It comprises soluble complex carbohydrates, maltose and small doses of glucose. During the cooking process, enzymes break down rice starch and it’s then cooked until syrupy.
Alternatively, you could use Blue Butterfly Pea Powder and with blueberries in the cheesecake - they're yum! The blueberries bursting in your mouth as you bite into the cake....
