As a mum of a pink loving daughter I couldnt wait to make a natural pink food colouring. It was even easier then I'd expected thanks to my Thermomix!
This recipe makes nearly a cup and around 1/2 teaspoon will colour a batch of icing.
It has a slightly sweet, subtle taste and could be added to both sweet or savoury baking/cooking.
If you're wondering what to do with the leftover boiled beetroot..you could try my beetroot cupcakes
