If you haven’t yet been inundated by cloud eggs you may be living in a cave (or perhaps simply don’t live on Instagram and Facebook, ahem…). But either way, even if you are familiar with them I can guarantee you’ve never seen a rainbow/mermaid/unicorn version until now.
Unicorn smoothies and mermaid toast are all the brilliantly time-wasting, superfood powdered rage these days, so it was only logical (completely illogical) for me to take the flash in a pan cloud egg craze a ridiculous step further and make the cloud a full rainbow explosion. Using only colours made from real food of course.
Pink from beetroot, yellow from turmeric and green from matcha are fairly logical. Blue however is a completely different story. There are all sorts of somehow-natural blue powders floating around right now, but in the absence of all of them in my cupboard I went for the method I used years ago for those natural coloured easter eggs – red cabbage and a pinch of baking soda. Yes really.
Of course you can make these plain white or pick one colour per cloud, but if you have lots of other things that you should be doing (oh like packing for both a move and an extended holiday) this is the perfect procrastination solution. You’re welcome (and don’t tell RJ).
Rainbow Cloud Eggs
Why just make regular cloud eggs when you can make rainbow unicorn cloud eggs? That is the question. The answer of course is why on earth not.
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 tsp matcha powder
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp beetroot juice
- 1 handful chopped red cabbage
- 1/2 tsp white vinegar or water
