Naturally Colored Green Sugar Sprinkles

Naturally Green Edible Grass – Sugar Sprinkles Colored With Spinach

  • fresh spinach
  • granulated sugar

Using a blender, puree spinach until smooth. Color the sugar with some spinach puree. Add more spinach puree for dark green and less spinach puree for bright green.

Even dark green spinach sugar doesn’t taste of spinach, it just tastes fresh.

Let the naturally green sugar sprinkles dry for some days at room temperature. Crush the sugar with the back of a spoon from time to time. Don’t use the oven to dry the sugar sprinkles because natural food coloring is heat-sensitive.

  1. Lots of ways to achieve the color “green”. Kale, green peas and spinach are obvious choices but sunflower seeds still seem to be more “blue”. Thanks for coming to the party and sharing with Fiesta Friday #244.
