There are some things I can tolerate and other things that make me cringe when it comes to processed foods and nutrition.  Artificial food colorings is something that makes me cringe.  So when my daughter asked me for princess pink cupcakes for her birthday, I smiled and stepped up to the task.  My solution to avoid Red #40 was Beet Juice Powder made by Pines.

Beet Juice Powder for Food Coloring

 

It is simple to use.  Just add a little powder to a couple drops of water and mix well.  Add the drops of the mixed liquid to anything you want to make pink or purple.  The more you add, the deeper the color.  I have used this with cupcake icing, milk, pancake batter and cake batter.

What are your tips to reduce food coloring but give your child the foods that are marketed to them?
