I’ll be honest, we don’t have food dyes in our home. Ok let me rephrase. Since being on Pinterest I found myself having to buy junkie stuff like food dyes for making crafts. The food dyes stay in the craft box now. Looking for ways to make a dye-free green frosting was difficult, until I had a Matcha green tea smoothie here in Chicago. I noticed it was green. I looked it up and found a few sources of Matcha Green Tea Powder. I bought mine from Amazon and this for my daughter’s Christmas party at school. I made a Dye-Free Peppermint Green Tea Frosting and it was fantastic! Peppermint Green Tea Frosting: 1 cup of vegan shortening 2 cups of organic powdered sugar (organic means it is corn-free) 3-4 Tablespoons of milk, we used unsweetened hemp milk, though I really like unsweetened coconut milk for frostings 5-7 mint leaves 1/2 teaspoon Matcha Green Tea Powder 1.) In a food processor puree mint leaves and milk until leaves are finely processed. Set aside. 2.) Whip up shortening for about 2-3 minutes. 3.) Add one cup of powdered sugar. 4.) Add 2 Tablespoons of minted milk. 5.) Add another cup of powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp of Matcha Green Tea Powder 6.) Blend until desired consistency. I used 4 Tablespoons of minted milk for my recipe. You can add more green tea powder for a darker green, play with it and come up with something you like. This will be great to use for St. Patrick’s Day too. PS: I had a friend who liked the Serendipity Matcha Green Tea Powder Be sure to check out my Banana Green Tea Matcha...
