Dye-free food coloring
Kids love fun, colorful foods. We love to color our food on different holidays – green for St Patrick’s Day, pink for Valentine’s Day, red or green for Christmas – it’s so fun having a reason to make our food fun! Instead of adding artificial colors and dyes, we like to color our food with natural colors from foods that are actually brightly colored! Beets have one of the deepest and brightest colors and can turn any food pink! We love adding them to pies because they turn incredibly pink!
Why are beets good for you?
These totally pink muffins contain a lot of nutrients. Beets are high in antioxidants as evidenced by their deep color. They are also a great source of folate and other micronutrients that have been shown to work as anti-inflammatory compounds. If you like adding vegetables to your breakfast and the nutrients that come with it, these are the perfect pies for you!
How to make beetroot puree
Making beet puree is much easier than I thought. Wrap the beets in tin foil. Cook at 400 degrees for an hour and a half (as you would with potatoes). I did this the night before because I wanted to make pancakes, then let the beets cool overnight. In the morning I came back, unwrapped, peeled (the skin slipped right away), and sliced. Place the slides in a Food processor Or a blender and puree until smooth. You can add a teaspoon or so of water so that it mixes better if you need to.

How to make pink waffles fun for Valentine’s Day
If you have young children, it can be fun sometimes to make your food a little too! I poured some pie dough into a squeeze bottle to make small, round pies easily. When they were calm, I inserted them into a toothpick with a heart on one end. They put some yogurt in a cute little bowl and add some Valentine’s Day sprinkle. This pink kabobs pie was a hit!
