Simple Recipe for Star Wars Blue Milk. This is a copycat to the Star Wars Blue Milk recipe, which is a treat that will be served at the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland. 
 

Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe Storm Trooper

You would have to be hanging out on a different planet to not know that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is set to open any day now (May 31st, 2019 to be exact!). To say that excitement levels are high is a galactic understatement. I can't wait to get a glimpse of the new Star Wars land at Disneyland! How about you?

There is quite a bit of information on the internet about Galaxy's Edge. Some is speculation and some comes straight from Disney's mouth, rather, their blog! The pictuers online are totally out of this world. One thing that caught my eye was the Milk Stand. Maybe because I have a bunch of kids? The milk at this stand doesn't serve 2% or even Skim, in fact, the milk served isn't even white! Only blue and green milk are on the menu. That is how you know, you aren't on planet Earth anymore.

The Disney Imagineering Exec Scott Trowbridge let us know a little bit about this mysterious blue milk. He said, "It is actually plant-based dairy-essentially rice milk--which makes it easier for everyone to enjoy. It's soft-frozen, like a milkshake." Brian Koziol, the director of Galaxy's Edge beverage department claims that it is a lot like a smoothie. 

So, with those helpful nuggets of information at hand, I decided to create a blue milk smoothie that Star Wars fans could make in the comfort of their own kitchen. Because, waiting for the park to open is so hard. Get a little taste of the magic before you experience Galaxy's Edge for the first time.

Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe from Galaxy's Edge Milk Stand

  • 2 cups Vanilla Flavored Sweetened Rice Milk
  • Glacier Ice Gatorade Powder
  • 1 cup Glacier Ice Frozen into Cubes or Mickey Shapes
  • Blue Food Coloring

Important note about this Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe:

You must make the Gatorade ice at least 5 hours before you want to serve the blue milk. For a quick version of this recipe, you can use regular ice and then increase the amount of Gatorade Power by 1/2 scoop. 

I ordered a Mickey Mouse mold from the Disney Store to use for my favorite Disney recipes. I was so excited to get it out for the very first time for this Star Wars Blue Milk recipe. If you don't have a Mickey Mouse mold, then feel free to use regular ice trays! You could also use Star Wars themed ice molds; there are a LOT on Amazon. Here are some links:

And here are the Mickey Mouse ice molds.

Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe: Getting Started 

Pour in blue Glacier Gatorade into the ice cube trays. Put them in the freezer to get solid.

Place 2 cups of sweetened vanilla rice milk in a blender.

Take your Mickey ice mold from the freezer and pop out the frozen blue Mickeys!

You need about 1.5 cups of ice to make the Star Wars Blue Milk smoothie consistency. That is all six Mickey heads if you are using the Disney mold. If you chose the water ice method, then just use a measuring cup with crushed or cubed ice.

Pour one scoop of the Gatorade Glacier Ice powder into the blender. The Galaxy's Edge version of blue milk claims to have a berry flavor. This Gatorade powder has a hint of berry flavor as well, so it is a pretty good match!

Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe: Getting the Blue Hue

Add about 4 drops of blue food coloring to the blender. I didn't think the blue milk was quite vibrant enough without the coloring! I wanted out of this world blue milk, not just milk with questionable freshness.

Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe: Getting Smooth

Blend everything together until it is nice and smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy! 

It is a little bit funny that Galaxy's Edge Blue Milk is not actually made of milk. Honestly, the rice milk version is a pretty good idea. Sipping on my own copycat blue milk made me realize that it would be quite refreshing on a hot day at the Disney parks. Much better than traditional cow's milk. It is a really light beverage that is sweet, but not overpowering. I think it's going to be a hit. Let me know what you think!

Anonymous- Thanks so much for sharing your recipe for Blue Milk! It's always so good to hear how these turn out for other people. We're all pretty excited to try the real deal at Galaxy's Edge this weekend!


I tried making this with slightly altered ingredients. I used one cup of vanilla rice drink, one cup of coconut milk, and 2 small trays of Glacier Freeze Gatorade ice cubes (roughly half of a 64 oz bottle). It turned out good, but the Gatorade overpowered the milk taste, so I guess if you enjoy that flavor of Gatorade you’ll like this mix, otherwise you might want to try something else. Another article I read listed the ingredients they’re going to use at Disneyland for Blue Milk as: coconut milk, rice milk, dragon fruit, pineapple, lime and watermelon. I think I’ll try that combo next. Green milk ingredients are listed in the article as: Mandarin orange, passion fruit, grapefruit and orange blossom (in addition to the rice and coconut milk I assume).
