Natural green food coloring is easy to make at home: All you need is fresh spinach leaves! I use natural green food coloring to color mint chocolate chip ice cream, custard, sugar hearts and sugar sprinkles green. And don’t worry natural green food coloring doesn’t taste spinachy, it just tastes fresh!
Natural Green Food Coloring With Fresh Spinach
- fresh spinach leaves *
- mortar and pestle
- fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth
* You need fresh spinach leaves to extract spinach juice. I tried it, it doesn’t work with frozen spinach.
Pound the fresh spinach leaves in a mortar.
Strain the pounded spinach leaves through a fine mesh sieve to extract the vibrant green spinach juice.
