Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs: Green/Blue Color

  • Author: Jennifer Regan / Bamboo Core Fitness


These naturally dyed, green/blue colored Easter eggs are much more beautiful than the neon-colored eggs created with traditional Easter egg coloring kits.


  • 1 large red cabbage head (about 1 pound) – (Other options for green dye include parsley, spinach leaves, fresh basil and/or liquid chlorophyll. Other options for blue dye include ½ cup blueberries plus 1½ cups water or purple grape juice.)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • Hard-boiled, white eggs


  1. Shred 1 large red cabbage (about 1 pound).
  2. Place in a pot with water, vinegar and salt.
  3. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until desired color is reached.
  4. Strain ingredients with slotted spoon, reserving the liquid for dyeing.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat.
  6. Allow dye to cool.
  7. Add eggs to dye.
  8. Leave eggs in dye until they reach the desired color.
  9. Remove eggs and place eggs on a drying rack or an upside down egg carton.
  10. For a slight shine, coat eggs in coconut oil.


Brown eggs will turn green and white will turn blue.
