Product description

Flavor:Blue

BOX OF 5 COLOR PACKETS - VIBRANT COLORS FROM NATURE

HOW DO I USE THE COLORS?

We recommend mixing the color powders with a very small amount of water or glycerin (approx. ¼ tsp liquid to 1 tsp powder) to make a paste, so they blend easily into the recipe.  For pastels, use ¼ tsp per cup of mixture. For strong colors, use full packet. 

Refresh powders instantly with a couple drops of water.

​If blending a liquid recipe, or in a food processor, you may add the color powders directly into the recipe after testing a small amount to ensure the color will dissolve thoroughly.

Blending ColorKitchen's primary colors will give you a rainbow of hues.

Basic Colors

  • PINK: 1 Beet Red Color Packet (equal to 1 ½ tsp), per cup recipe.
  • YELLOW: 1 Yellow Color Packet (equal to 1 ½ tsp), per cup recipe
  • BLUE: 1 Blue Color Packet (equal to 1 ½ tsp), per cup recipe

Mixed Colors

  • LIME GREEN: ¼ tsp Blue Color, 1 ½ tsp Yellow Color, per cup recipe
  • MINT GREEN:  1 tsp Yellow Color, ½ tsp Blue Color, per cup recipe
  • ORANGE: 1 ½ tsp Yellow Color, ½ tsp Beet Red Color, per cup recipe
  • RED: 1 ¾ tsp Yellow Color, 1 ½ tsp Beet Red Color, per cup recipe
  • PURPLE: ¼ tsp Blue Color, ½ tsp Beet Red Color, per cup recipe

Heat and Natural Colors

Natural colors can be heat sensitive and start to fade at 200-250 degrees, resulting in more pastel colors. When working with heated recipes, like a gummy candy, mix colors into a liquid first and then add into the cooling phase for maximum color vibrancy.

For cakes and other larger portion baked goods, a recipe with a shorter bake time or lower heat is recommended.

Our Mission

Our mission at ColorKitchen is to see the end of artificial coloring in the foods we eat. Artificial coloring has been linked to ADHD in children, as well as cancer and allergic sensitivities. Our products were developed to offer a natural alternative to synthetic colors, with vibrant and beautiful plant-based options that decorate and color food safely. We want to bring you products that you can feel good about, products that are affordable, fun, and easy to use.

Located in Bend, Oregon, just east of the Cascade Mountains, ColorKitchen is a small business, created and run by women. We experiment with recipes in our test kitchen, trying out products and making tasty treats, sometimes with less than perfect results!

We bake, we test and we taste, and nothing goes to waste!

Snowball Coconut Creme Truffles

Yield: 16-24 truffles

Ingredients

1 cup coconut cream concentrate, also known as coconut butter.
¾ cup virgin coconut oil (soft, but not melted)
½  cup coconut milk
½  cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp. organic sugar (optional, or substitute with organic, natural sweetener of choice)
½  tsp ColorKitchen Bright Blue Color Packet
1 tbsp vanilla extract
⅛ tsp salt
Shredded coconut for topping

Instructions

Using a mixer or food processor, combine the coconut cream concentrate (coconut butter) and coconut oil until smooth. In a small bowl, mix blue food color powder with a couple drops of water until all the color is dissolved. While the mixer or food processor is still running, add in your coconut milk and shredded coconut, and color mixture, continuing to mix until smooth. Then, add the rest of your ingredients (along with your various optional ingredients) and mix until the batter is again smooth. Since it will generally be too soft to manipulate, place the mix into the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. Take it out when the batter is firm, but not so firm that you can’t mold/shape it. Once the batter is ready, use an ice cream scoop or small spoon to scoop out the batter and roll it into a ball in your hands until you have about 16-24 truffles (depending on how large your balls are) all placed on a plate. As long as the truffles are still firm, you can then roll them in any topping you’d like. If not quite firm enough, just stick them back in the refrigerator for a little while.


 
Frosting-Filled Strawberries

Ingredients


Strawberries
Frosting (either store bought or homemade) 

What To Do

-To make this treat, begin by carving out the strawberry tops to expose the inner-cavity. Set the cut strawberries aside.

-Using your favorite frosting, add 1/2 color packet of Bright Blue to each cup of frosting.

-If you have decorating tools like bags and tips, scoop your frosting into a bag, and using your favorite tip, fill each strawberry to the brim with blue frosting.

-If you don't have decorating tools, scoop the frosting into a plastic storage bag and cut a small piece off the corner plastic and squeeze to fill each strawberry. When finished, lightly dust the strawberries and frosting with powdered sugar.
