Natural Food Dyes

You will need a juicer for this recipe

Color and produce used:

Red- beets
Orange- carrots
Yellow- mango or yolk 
Green- spinach
Blue- red cabbage 
& baking soda*
Purple- red cabbage


-For each color you will need to clean out your juicer each time
-I juiced about 1 cup of each fresh fruit or veggie and came up with a few tablespoons each of every color. Depending on what colors you want and how much you want, juice more or less.
-Dyes are only good for a few days so make new dye each time you need it
-Do not worry too much about the veggie flavors coming through in your food, they are very subtle and won't overpower your flavor and make it gross, promise!!
-* mix in a little bit of baking soda to change the color to blue! its magic, you will see!!
-Use your dyes for your baking recipes, enjoy!!!

Thanks for stopping by, come back soon to See the cute rainbow cake I made with my natural dyes when you check back, its coming soon!!
