By now, you have probably tried macarons since they are everywhere! But if you haven’t, macarons are a delicious French sweet meringue made with everyday ingredients like egg whites, powder sugar and almond flour. Usually food colouring is added into the meringue to give it a bright beautiful colour and it is filled with a buttercream filling which can also be flavoured.
Traditional macarons are also gluten free since it is made with almond flour instead of regular flour. This makes a great dessert that most people can enjoy even with some dietary restrictions.
The recipe is actually very easy, you just have to make sure you follow a few tips and be a little patient as there is some waiting in between steps.
I also used a natural food colouring, the Rishi’s Butterfly Pea Powder
which is a flower that is from Thailand, Malaysia and other parts of Southeast Asia and has antioxidant components. It has a mild and nutty flavour and makes a great latte with milk as well! The beautiful blue colour is bright and vibrant and if you add any citrus to the butterfly pea powder, it turns the blue to a lovely purple colour! The Butterfly Pea Powder is super fun to bake and make drinks with.
