How to make all-natural Easter Egg Dye

with Red Beet Powder

Whether you are celebrating a religious holiday or welcoming spring, there is always a reason to get creative and have fun in the kitchen! The Easter feeling is all about pastel colours, eggs, and getting festive and crafty. Colouring eggs to welcome spring is a must-do, just like decorating Christmas trees to celebrate the holiday season!

We have been celebrating Easter for centuries now, but when and how did this start? The origins of this colourful egg tradition date back to as early as the 13th century, when Christians would celebrate the end of Lent.

After not eating eggs or any animal products for 40 days, they would end up with too many to eat! So, to make the eggs last longer, they would hard-boil and decorate them as part of the end of Lent festivities. Year after year, this activity became a tradition that is still celebrated to this day.

Eggs are also known to be a symbol for fertility and re-birth, which is in a way, what Spring is all about! It is that time of the year again when flowers start to blossom to bring colour back into the world after a dark winter. So, what better way to keep this tradition alive than by using natural Earthy pigments to colour your eggs! Use this recipe to keep your creativity and Easter spirit alive!


  • The outcome of the colour may vary on how much pigment and how long the natural easter egg dye remains on the egg.
  • You can experiment with a bunch of different natural easter egg dye like red cabbage, blueberries, red onions!
  • Tip: Use brown eggs to get deeper and richer colours!
