Blue Glaze Donuts

Do you go nuts for donuts? So do I.
And as you know from my previous post, I’m crazy about this blue butterfly pea tea!!
So of course my next logical thought was: what better step to take next than to experiment & combine the two!?
As with the cheesecake, these blue glazed donuts are vegan and gluten & refined sugar free – so really there’s no need to hold back: go ahead and eat them all!

Donut ingredients:

  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce (I made my own by simmering chopped apples on a low heat until they broke down)
  • 1 egg or 1 tbsp chia seeds mixed with water
  • 50 g coconut oil (melted)
  • 4 tbsp honey or agave nectar syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 150 g buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder


Glaze ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cashews (soaked 4 hours)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 40 butterfly pea tea flowers
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence


To make the donuts:

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Mix all the wet ingredients together.
  3. Add the wet to the dry and then transfer to the donut moulds.
  4. Bake at 160 degrees for 15 minutes.


To make the glaze:

  1. Blend the cashews in a food processor until smooth.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the almond milk and add the tea. Simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the blue almond milk to the blended cashews, add the agave nectar and vanilla essence and blend again until combined.
  4. Keep refrigerated until your donuts have cooked & cooled.
  5. Decorate the donuts with the glaze and extra flowers!
  6. These donuts are vegan and gluten & refined sugar free – so really there’s no need to hold back: go ahead and eat them all!


Obviously there are many ways to make donuts. However, I opted for the vegan and gluten-free option as I think that everyone should be able to enjoy these beauties!

Applying Blue Glaze 

When preparing the glaze, you can also add 2-3 tbsp of lemon juice. Not only will it will give the glaze a certain tartness, but it will also turn the colour purple. You could even make the donuts half blue and half purple.

Decorating Blue Donuts

I chose to decorate my donuts with crumbled butterfly pea tea flowers. You can also use shredded almonds, coconut, nuts, berries or sprinkles.



This is it! Hope you enjoyed the the recipe. Let us know in the comments how your friends reacted when you gave them a blue donut. Bet they wouldn’t expect for the colouring to be entirely natural!
