Make your own natural pink food coloring for Valentine’s Day!
A while ago, I made natural blue food coloring with red cabbage. And today, I made natural pink food dye with raw beetroot. Isn’t it such a pretty pink color? 😀
- raw beetroot
Dice or grate raw beetroot and puree in a blender. Use raw beetroot puree to dye baked goods. If you plan to color drinks, icing etc., strain the beetroot puree through a sieve.
You can use beetroot juice to color (soy) milk or yogurt pink …
… or buttercream or cream cheese frosting.
Or make beautiful all-natural pink icing: Add less beetroot juice for baby pink, and more beetroot juice for dark pink.
I used pink and dark pink icing to make Valentine heart cookies.
