The type of blue dye used in this recipe is made from boiling purple cabbage in water. The cabbage is removed and the colored water is reduced to a dark purple liquid to which baking soda is added, resulting in a change of color to blue. You can find these natural colors easily in health food stores or online. ___________________________ Did you know that we have supplements for kids?
