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! 😉
