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? 😀
You can use natural beetroot food dye to color baked goods, drinks, ice cream, icing, buttercream …
- 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.

How fun! I like the all-natural dye options plus, we grow beets! Thank you for linking up with us on the Art of Home-Making Mondays. We are glad to have you! 🙂
P.S. I love your historical theme!
Thank you! 😀
This is such a simple yet brilliant idea. Our son is easily affected by some foods (especially additives) so I’m definitely giving this one a try! Thanks for sharing at To Grandma’s House We Go xx
Thanks! 😀 You can also make natural blue food coloring with red cabbage and natural green food coloring with spinach. And I’ll soon post a tutorial about making natural food coloring with carrots and blueberries.
I’ve colored eggs for Easter with natural dyes, but never really thought of making my own food coloring. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
