How to Create Natural Pink Food Dye

Recently, I explained how to make red and pink food coloring using beets.  Another way to make pink is to use blueberry juice.  To make icing for sugar cookies, you simply mix blueberry juice, confectioners sugar and water.

The basic measurements for sugar cookie icing is:

1 cup of confectioners sugar
1 T. + 1 t. of Liquid (In this case blueberry juice and water)

You can use more water in the mix if you want it a paler shade or less water for a darker shade of pink.

Enjoy!
