“Sour milk”– that’s one way the taste of the live-blue-algae latte has been described to Matcha Mylkbar’s co-owner Nic Davidson.
Trendspotting: We hunt for the next big thing in the cafe scene and it sure does seem like coloured lattes are brewing up a storm with the recent discovery of a Blue Latte in Melbourne and a Red Velvet Latte in Bali.
Despite only being introduced to the St Kilda cafe’s menu last Saturday, the drink has enjoyed enormous popularity after a photo of the striking blue latte appeared on Instagram.
The blue-algae latte is made from a mixture of lemon, ginger and coconut milk and apparently has several health benefits that boosts support to the mind and body balance, and the immune, nervous, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems.
The vegan cafe, which also serves cactus-flower bread, mushroom “bacon” and vegan “eggs”, is also known for its colourful lattes, such as a beetroot, a matcha and a mushroom latte.
