How To Make Edible Easter Grass

Quick & Easy edible Easter grass is the perfect accent for your Easter table.  Just water, food coloring, and sweetened coconut. Using this edible grass you can have any dessert nestled in an edible Easter basket theme.


  • 1 bag of sweetened coconut flakes
  • green food coloring
  • a small amount of water


  1. In a medium mixing bowl start by adding 6 to 8 drops of green food coloring. Add to the food coloring, 1 tsp of water.  
  2. Now add your coconut (I started with 1/2 a bag) and mix well and lightly with a fork.  Add more water and food coloring to get the color you desire. (be careful with the water as you will want the coconut to dry before you use it)
  3. I would recommend air drying overnight as mine was moister than I wanted for my photographs.
