I made naturally colored blue ice cream again! Yay! 😀 The ice cream is naturally colored blue with my homemade blue food coloring (made with red cabbage & baking soda).
This time I made a vegan blue ice cream bombe with homemade vegan stracciatella ice cream and vegan blue ice cream flavored with vanilla bean and rum.
I tried how blue I could dye ice cream with natural blue food coloring. Last time I used homemade blue food coloring from half a head of red cabbage per 3.5 cups ice cream base: The ice cream was pale blue and didn’t taste of red cabbage. This time I used almost all blue food coloring from one head of red cabbage per 3.5 cups ice cream base: The ice cream had a beautiful blue color, but it tasted a bit of red cabbage, therefore I added rum – and none of my test eaters noticed the red cabbage! 😉

Lina, I saw the thumbnail and just had to follow the link to check it out! The blue cake is wonderful. The color is terrific. I thought it was going to be blueberries for color. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

Thank you! 😀
That’s so neat that you can make blue ice cream and naturally too. It looks fun and delicious!
I want to make a dairy free I’ve cream and turn it blue for my son’s birthday. Does the rum make this an adults only treat? Is there a way to mask the cabbage taste that is more appropriate for children?
You can use essential peppermint oil to mask the cabbage taste. 🙂
