Natural food dyes

What can I use to naturally dye food? What would be good to use to naturally dye a cake frosting made of yogurt/cream cheese?

  • I know you can buy all-natural food coloring that is blue, but I don't know of any food products you can make one from. Sorry. Blueberries and most other blue foods will just give you a purple dye.

  • Beet juice can make a nice pink color. What colors would work for the cake?

  • Thanks for your help, I appreciate it! I was thinking about using blueberries, but...I guess I won't! Are the all-natural food colorings that much better than regular food coloring? I'm wanting his cake to be as healthy as possible, and I'm willing to forego a pretty cake to do so.

  • I don't really know if the "all natural" dyes are any better. I'm a little skeptical on that. I mean, tobacco is natural, lots of deadly poisons are natural, I'm not 100% sure that natural automatically equals better for you than synthetic, or if the benefits are worth the extra price tag. I just don't know.
