STAR WARS BLUE MILK – With out Artificial Food Coloring

Hi you’re in Steve’s kitchen
and I have recently returned from a trip to Tatooine where I’ve developed a real
love of bantha milk. You can’t really get bantha milk here on earth and whilst I was
there I discovered that the banthas love to eat the shrub of the butterfly Pea
or the ternatea shrub and that’s what causes that wonderful blue milk. Now I
couldn’t bring bantha milk back with me it would have gone off but I managed to
get some dried ternatea shrubs. I’ve seen people here on earth just add blue
food coloring to milk to try and replicate bantha milk and it doesn’t cut
the ice, so what you need to do, if you know anyone that’s in the outer rim
planets and they’re coming back get them to bring some dried ternatea shrubs
with you and you can make a pretty credible bantha milk here on planet
earth. Now this is a very rare shrub and pretty expensive luckily we don’t need
to use actually very much to recreate bantha milk, all we need to do is take
maybe five or six of these little petals and we want to extract the essence. So
pop them into any vessel and we just need to add a little bit of boiled water
to extract the rare minerals from the ternatea plant. Now I’ll give that a little
stir through and we’ll leave that to steep for about 45 minutes. Now if you
want to recreate Banta milk don’t use any of that skinny low-fat stuff, you
want the fullest richest creamiest milk. Bantha milk is very rich so the ternatea
is infused , it’s cooled down a little bit I’m going to take that beautiful rich
milk and pour it in there and just look at that, you give this a stir around
leave the ternatea in it’s going to get richer and more bluer in the next
hour or so. I’ve let that infuse for an hour so to get all the goodness out of
that very precious ternatea or butterfly pea. This is just like regular milk,
bantha milk like this will last in the fridge for the same amount of time but
I’m going to give this a try right now. Now it’s not exactly necessary but I’ll
strain out the herbs a little bit and there you have it, how gorgeous does that
look, real bantha milk, none of that food chemically enhanced milk. I’m going to give
this a try. Well that takes me back to Tatooine.
Now if people like this I might show you how to make bantha custard, so comment
down below let me know what you think about that. I’ll show you how I like to
use my bantha milk I’m going to make a bantha chai latte and I’ll take you back
to Joe’s bar. Just pop some of you’re bantha milk into a pitcher and we’re
just going to texture that milk. Now get a nice froth on it. Now start with a chai
latte base of your choice and then we’re going to take our foamed bantha milk and
just pour it in there, look at that beautiful blue milk and there you have
it, a bantha chai latte and that takes me right back to Joe’s bar. I’m sure if
you’re watching this you’re already a Star Wars fan, if you’re not the new
movie the last Jedi is coming up. I want to dedicate this to my brother-in-law
and sister-in-law Andy and Leah I know they’re huge Star Wars fan and they’re
expecting a baby around about now, so good luck with that and if you’ve
enjoyed this please share the love and let’s see if Bantha milk makes an
appearance in the new Star Wars Episode the last Jedi, be good and I’ll see you
very shortly, take care.

  4. Ahmed youssef November 24, 2017 at 11:26 am

    very nice…;o)

  5. Maxi Bake November 24, 2017 at 11:36 am

    I'm guessing it must tastes better than Bantha fodder. ? Have a great weekend Steve. May the force be with you. ❤🙂🐶

  6. VB Ed November 24, 2017 at 11:49 am

    This video is out of this world. Must get some Bantus Milk.

  7. CrazyRoadblock November 24, 2017 at 1:12 pm

    So in essence you made food coloring.

  8. ig33ku November 24, 2017 at 1:45 pm

    You know the reports of Aunt Beru and Uncle Owens killed by Storm Troopers feels more suspiciously like Steve leaving the fire on the stove and he cradled his Bantha Milk in the corner and later firing a few blaster shots to make look like the Troopers did it.

  9. White Thunder BBQ November 24, 2017 at 1:57 pm

    This is a great video Steve!!

  11. Critter T November 24, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    I've never been a Star Wars fan but I'm definitely a Steve fan, so. I watched🎈

  12. Hubert Shitmeyer November 24, 2017 at 4:58 pm

    great storytelling, and i love to see that chefs jacket, it looks so lovely. now, just let me point out the technical term for ternatea.
    now, i wonder why they renamed it? "blue clit milk" sounds exotic to me….

  13. Werejusdoinit November 24, 2017 at 7:39 pm

    I love your Chef's Coat!!!!!!!

  14. Ruby Slippers November 24, 2017 at 8:31 pm

    Would it turn a darker blue by replacing hot milk for water?

  15. gloriapatri1 November 24, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    We can get dried butterfly pea flowers on Amazon. I got them because of this video. 😊

  16. Dwayne Wladyka November 24, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    Pretty cool looking drink.

  17. Matt Lewis November 24, 2017 at 11:05 pm

    I'd like to see a nerf steak recipe if you have one Steve

  18. Ben Pimpin November 25, 2017 at 1:58 am

    Yes!!! Awesome vid steve. I'm gonna try to make some blue clotted cream now too.

  19. EZGlutenFree November 25, 2017 at 2:55 am

    Very Cool Steve.

  20. Christina Augustine November 25, 2017 at 4:47 pm

    In my peranakan culture, we make delicious cakes with this flower buds. It can be bought rather inexpensively. The blue dye from the flower buds makes them taste and looks beautiful too 😉 interesting take on milk !

  21. Hubert Shitmeyer November 25, 2017 at 8:15 pm

    oi, steve – just had a thought, now that you went STAR WARS fanboy, why not do a han solo carbonite block cake or something, too?

  22. Logan Reed November 26, 2017 at 12:40 am

    Make more starwars videos

  23. Mike Brooka November 26, 2017 at 1:24 am

    Interesting I must say. Maybe done with half and half. Not sure how to spell the blooms name. I think my mom used to plant them. She never used the in cooking. What flavor do they impart?
    Thanks and take care from Oklahoma,
    Mike and Vee

  24. LloydBonafide1 November 26, 2017 at 4:19 pm

    You should maybe wear more colorful things, outfit looks a little bland in this video. Come on Steven dress it up.

  25. Elekrycity November 27, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    Nice storytelling Steve!

  26. Dimtrios Skountzos November 30, 2017 at 12:36 am

    Steve I am a huge star wars fan and your video really gave me goosebumps I loved it so so much , you are awesome, please make more star wars video recipes

  27. Dimtrios Skountzos November 30, 2017 at 1:32 am

    Oh it was both , the intro of course was what made my eyes open wide and the smile on my face but also the little clips of the movie when you were poring the milk, and yes I been with your channel for a while , I’m not sure if you remember when I did the Cuban bread and I told about it that it was a big success, but above all that I really do enjoy all your videos 🙂

  28. BeastOfTraal December 19, 2017 at 12:54 am

    If you make a white Russian with Bantha Milk would it be a Blue Russian

  29. Pinãta Bong December 24, 2017 at 8:38 pm


  30. EternalGaming786 January 3, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    That looks tasty… :3

  31. Jason Davis January 7, 2018 at 6:11 pm

    That's great Steve, but how does Blue Bantha milk taste in comparison to Luke's freshly milked Thala-sirens green milk?!

  32. Sheldon Cooper January 9, 2018 at 11:43 pm

    What happens if you mix milk with a blue alcoholic beverage instead?

  33. Trunks Vegeta Briefs January 14, 2018 at 7:38 am

    I have my own recipe very rich and very sweet just like bantha milk and I have my own ideas on why it’s blue

    Cut up a head of red cabbage

    Boil it in enough water to cover for 20 minutes or so

    Drain water out and catch in a bowl

    Dump back into pot and allow to simmer

    Once liquid is reduced pour it back into bowl

    Add a tsp of baking soda
    Now you have an all natural food dye imitating the chemical reaction that I believe occurs when banthas eat red cabbage

    mix the following in a blender
    . 250 mL preferred milk
    . 2 tbsp fat free yoghurt
    . 1 ripe banana
    . Honey
    . 1/2 tsp vanilla
    . 1 tbsp sugar
    . 1 packet Sucralose/Splenda

    Now add 1/8 cup of our homemade food dye

    Pour into glass and enjoy

  34. Trunks Vegeta Briefs January 14, 2018 at 7:41 am

    Is it sweet like Bantha milk is supposed to be?

  35. Trunks Vegeta Briefs January 22, 2018 at 3:02 am

    I just found a local store that sells them cheap how much water should I add?

  36. Dan Bello January 23, 2018 at 3:49 am

    What is the shrub called?

  37. Trunks Vegeta Briefs January 23, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    By the way there a hell of a lot of other recipes and I combined them all into my own with this one

    Cut up a head of red cabbage (or just use 8 cups shredded red cabbage either way)
    Cook cabbage shreds in enough water to cover for 20 minutes or so under medium high
    Strain it catching cabbage water in a bowl
    Add 1 tsp baking soda

    Now do exactly what you did in this video
    Get the ternatea, soak it in 200 mL water Yadi yadi yada

    Now measure 1 cup of the blue cabbage water and combine it with the ternatea water
    Now pour in 250 mL skim milk

    blend the following
    . 1 ripe banana (sliced up)
    . 2 tbsp fat free yoghurt
    . 1 tsp honey
    . 1/2 tsp vanilla
    . 1 tbsp sugar
    . 1 packet Sucralose
    . 1/2 tsp blue fruit punch mix (I know it sounds stupid but it works kinda)

    Now blend the 2 mixtures together

    Pour into 1000 mL pitcher and fill the rest of the volume with preferred milk

    If not satisfied with the color add a small amount of blue food coloring

  38. Arctic Fox Gaming January 26, 2018 at 7:20 am

    Spoiler Alert: It does.

  39. Tab Time January 29, 2018 at 9:49 am

    What you can do is just put blueberry syrup in milk. Hershey one

  40. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 13, 2018 at 4:29 am

    Not bad but here’s my way to do it

    . Heat 1 cup vitamin D milk on the stove while stirring with a cinnamon stick
    . Add blue food coloring while continuing to stir
    . Put that in the fridge
    . Combine the flooring in a blender
    – 250 mL skim milk
    – 1 ripe banana
    – 2 tbsp fat free blueberry yoghurt
    – 1 tsp honey
    – 1/2 tsp vanilla
    – 1 tbsp sugar
    . 1 packet Sucralose
    . 1 packet blue raspberry Kool-aid
    – 1 singles packet berry punch flavor powder
    – 1 singles packet blue fruit punch mix
    . Put that in the fridge
    . Cut up 1/2 a head of red cabbage
    . Cook in enough water to cover on medium high
    . Bring to a light boil and simmer for 10 minutes on low
    . Strain it catching cabbage water in a bowl
    . Measure 1 cup
    . Add 1 tsp baking soda
    . Grab 5-6 dried butterfly pea shrubs and plop them into any vessel
    . Add 200 mL boiled water
    . Stir and leave to steep for 45 minutes
    . Combine our blue waters in a 1000 mL pitcher
    . Fill the remaining volume with vitamin D milk
    . Refrigerate for an hour
    . After 1 hour has passed get rid of the shrubs that have been left in there all that time
    . Combine our blue milks together
    . Refrigerate until you’re ready to drink it

  41. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 14, 2018 at 5:59 pm

    I’ve found tea bags of blue tea

    Would those work instead I mean the label says “100% butterfly pea”

  42. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 16, 2018 at 9:29 pm

    Okay I know I’ve posted some on here but this is a different one here’s my interpretation and this time I didn’t just combine several different recipes measurements and all I used them as a basis and even added some of my own spin
    I’ve been to Tatooine as well but I’m sorry to say yours doesn’t cut the ice either
    Here’s how to really replicate bantha milk
    . Combine the following in a ziplock bag (equal quantities)
    – berry punch flavor powder
    – blue raspberry flavor powder
    – blue Hawaiian Punch flavor powder
    . Set that aside for a while
    . Grab a butterfly pea teabag and make 600mL of blue tea out of it using the coffee maker
    . Put the teabag in the tea and leave it there for 45 minutes
    . Cut up 1/2 a head of red cabbage and cook in enough water to cover on medium high
    . Bring to a light boil and simmer for 10 minutes on low
    . Strain it catching cabbage water in a bowl add a tsp of baking soda
    . Combine the following in a 1000mL pitcher
    – 100mL of our blue tea
    – 100mL of our blue cabbage water
    – enough vitamin D milk to fill the remaining volume (either that or whole milk)
    . Put that in the fridge and set timer to 1 hour
    . Combine the following in a blender
    – 250mL vitamin D milk
    – 1/2 pint of heavy cream
    – 1 ripe banana (mashed)
    – 2 tbsp fat free blueberry yoghurt
    – 1 tsp honey
    – 8 tsp vanilla extract
    – 1 tbsp sugar
    – 1 packet Sucralose
    – 2 tbsp brown sugar
    – 2 tsp powdered sugar
    – original coffee creamer
    – hazelnut coffee creamer
    – French vanilla coffee creamer
    – 1 tsp cinnamon
    – 1 tsp of our blue flavor powder mixture
    – 1 shot glass of Mountain Dew voltage
    . Put that in the fridge until previously set timer goes off
    . Combine our blue colored milks

  43. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 16, 2018 at 10:05 pm

    Incase your wondering why I added sugar and other sweeteners to the recipes I gave you that’s because bantha milk is supposed to be not only rich but also sweet Han Solo describes it as overly sweet you seem to have only taken the richness factor into account

  44. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 16, 2018 at 10:06 pm

    Did you say 45 or 4-5?

  45. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 17, 2018 at 2:09 am

    By the way there’s this channel called mind over much that basically does the same thing your doing but she uses a different plant
    The red cabbage
    . Cut up 1/2 a head of red cabbage
    . Cook in enough water to cover on medium high
    . Bring to a light boil and simmer for 10 minutes on low
    . Add 1 tsp baking soda
    . Add 1 cup of it to your recipe
    (This isn’t how she did it this is how I did it but it fits with your recipe surprisingly perfectly)

  46. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 17, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    I’ve been to Tatooine as well and banthas also love to eat red cabbage and the flavor of it kinda makes its way into the milk
    I’ve listed how to use that in another comment
    Just make you version then add some of that to it it’ll be much more accurate to bantha milk I tell you

  47. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 17, 2018 at 5:22 pm

    I just realized Tatooine is a desert where would they get a flower that literally gets its name from a perverted scientist saying, “that flower looks like a vagina” (I’m not even joking about that that’s the literal reason it’s called the clitoria ternatea)
    I mean do they grow it on their moisture vaporators or some shit

  48. Trunks Vegeta Briefs February 19, 2018 at 6:09 pm

    By the way did you know that there’s an official recipe that’s readily available because of some Disney app?
    And I’m going to word it exactly like they did (honestly make this then make some of yours then combine them it’s more than worth it but I know full damn well that you won’t)
    – 250mL skim milk (you can use whatever milk your child prefers)
    – 1 ripe banana (mashed)
    – 2 tbsp fat free yoghurt
    – 1 tsp honey to sweeten

    For the yoghurt I recommend blueberry (I know it’s only blue by name not by nature but it kinda works flavor wise I mean I hate blueberries, I hate yoghurt unless it’s frozen, but blend them both together and it still sucks but put blueberry yoghurt in this recipe and you’ve got something special

    I’m not trying to sway you anymore I’m just throwing the ball it’s up to you if you wanna catch it

  49. 《aaron19》 Nenton April 14, 2018 at 8:42 am

    Bantha milk does appear in TLJ

  50. Comrade Leader April 28, 2018 at 9:23 pm

    I might make some but where do you find the plant in England or in shops dude because I'm a proper Star Wars fan like I almost know everything

  51. Blue Milk October 21, 2018 at 8:53 pm

    Thank you for featuring me in your video man! Means so much to me. It's been hard since I got cut out from the Last Jedi…

  52. Alfie TheGamingKid November 4, 2018 at 2:33 pm

    You know that cup you were drinking it out of

    I have the same

  53. VonDrake December 21, 2018 at 7:37 am

    That milk….. there's something wrong about it….


  54. Bill Egg April 24, 2019 at 2:34 am

    Hmmmm, he cut away when drinking. Why? I almost thought this was fake.
    But it’s really good. Thx

  55. shzykh April 30, 2019 at 6:56 am

    My oldass dad decided to book himself all day for Cinco de Mayo for some reason and so our weekly family dinner will be on May the fourth. My mother thinks we're doing Mexicali, but I'm planning on all Star Wars food. She and I often clash in the kitchen. This helps. Looking up edible lightsabers also. I think I'll win.

  56. Elisa Musica May 4, 2019 at 11:08 pm

    but nobody can eat those flowers directly, root taro would be better

  57. Jeffrey Kressin June 6, 2019 at 1:14 am

    Elton John making blue milk. My life is complete

  58. Jennifer Favila July 2, 2019 at 12:20 am

    I need more detail the one we try at Disney land tester like watermelon

  59. Michael Smith July 7, 2019 at 6:08 pm

    raw milk from any farmer would be way better and healthier.

  60. Moo Moo Puppy July 11, 2019 at 11:19 pm

    I love your chef's coat!

  61. MashMosh August 3, 2019 at 1:47 pm

    You know that Tatooine exists actually? It’s a city in Tunisia, and there the scenes in Star Wars of Planet Tatooine were filmed. That’s the origin of the name of the planet.

  62. Alexa Moonlight August 20, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    Amazing! I just watched people adding just adding food coloring

  63. DarkComet360 September 11, 2019 at 4:23 am

    …………………………NICE…………………… :))
