There are so many fun ideas for themed parties these days.

And the newest trend is to have your guests bring monochromatic “charcuterie” boards (plus cocktails!). 

One guest brings purple, one blue, one green, one PINK, etc. I mean, how fun does that sound?

Of course, these would also be ideal for a pink baby shower or Galentine’s Day event. Or maybe you just want to add some fun to your weekly menu.

Either way, these pink foods are sure to brighten your table.

15 Incredible Foods That Are Pink

1. Pink Beet Pancakes

Breakfast has never been more fun! Not only are these pancakes insanely adorable, but they also have the added benefit of being extremely healthy.

They’re made with oats, eggs, yogurt, applesauce, and maple syrup – and beets, of course! 

Each bite feels wholesome and tastes terrific. You and your whole family will love these.

They’re so easy to make, they’ll probably become a weekly thing.

2. Hot Pink Beetroot Hummus (Vegan)

Hummus is great. But pink hummus is fabulous! 

Chickpea dip always tastes fantastic, but it isn’t…well…it isn’t cute. Also, the color is not so appealing to the eye.

This hummus, though, is a STUNNER! 

Not only that but there’s a hidden source of goodness in the mix. Beets make it vibrant, earthy, and super nutritional.

So basically, this is superpowered hummus, and you’ll love it! 

3. 3-Ingredient Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

This strawberry banana smoothie bowl is as easy as 1-2-3 and ABC… nope, just A!

That’s because you only need three ingredients and one step to make this yummy dish. 

Simply gather frozen banana slices, frozen strawberries, and your favorite milk (feel free to use dairy-free).

Toss it all in the blender and go to town! When it’s reached your desired consistency, you’re done. 

Serve in a funky bowl, and add all your favorite toppings. I like chia seeds, coconut flakes, and chocolate. Yum!

4. Pink Popcorn

Movies and popcorn go hand-in-hand. So, dim the lights, make this pink popcorn, and get cozy!

This recipe features plain popcorn covered in a buttery, sugary vanilla glaze. It’s sweet, just a little salty (from the butter), and totally addictive. 

My favorite part of this recipe (aside from its simplicity) is its versatility. You can change the colors or flavors in a snap, making it ideal for any festive party.

And if you aren’t a fan of food coloring, try using freeze-dried fruit instead. Raspberry powder will make it pink and give it a yummy flavor!

5. Red Velvet (Beet) Cinnamon Rolls

Are you sensing a theme? Beets are a pink superpower in everything from snacks to dessert!

And no, the flavor isn’t prominent in any of the sweet treats featured on this list.

In fact, if you make these once, you (and your family) will never want regular cinnamon rolls again.

It’s not just because of their fun color – though that’s reason enough for me. 

It’s because these cinnamon rolls are absolutely delicious! Every bite is heavenly.

6. Strawberry Cake

Each slice of this strawberry cake tastes like summer.

It’s sweet, fresh, and fabulously light. Plus, it BURSTS with strawberry goodness. 

There are fresh berries in the cake and strawberries in the cream cheese frosting too.

You could even use fresh (or chocolate-covered) strawberries to decorate. Talk about a show-stopper! 

7. White Chocolate Raspberry Macarons

Macarons are my favorite cookie. And these white chocolate and raspberry macarons definitely make my top five.

Just be warned: these are DECADENT.

The macaron shell is made with pink raspberry meringue and almond flour. So it’s sweet, fruity, and perfectly chewy.

Meanwhile, the filing is a dreamy white chocolate ganache that’s so smooth, you’ll want to eat it right out of the bowl.

I don’t know about you, but I’m drooling already. 

Macarons can be a bit finicky, but they’re so worth the extra love. And once you get the hang of it, you’ll be a pro in no time.

8. Simple Strawberry Smoothie

This no-fuss strawberry smoothie is as tasty as it is easy.

You only need three ingredients and a blender for a perfect, milkshake-like smoothie. 

Simply gather frozen strawberries, strawberry jam, and your favorite milk. Then, get to blending!

It’s refreshing, delicious, and perfect for a busy day. 

9. No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

This no-bake strawberry cheesecake might just change your life. Okay, maybe I’m being a bit hyperbolic… but it IS really, really good.

It’s kind of like a fresh strawberry mousse on a Graham Cracker crust. Every bite is silky smooth and explodes with strawberry flavor. 

That intense flavor comes from a homemade strawberry puree (don’t worry, it’s so easy).

It’s a berries-and-cream dream that you won’t want to share.  

10. Strawberry Ice Cream

Are you the kind of person who eats the pink part of Neapolitan ice cream first? Well then, this ice cream recipe is meant for you!

It’s fresh, delicious, and intensely strawberry. 

If you love creamy ice cream, you’ll love this. It really is the ultimate strawberry treat.

Serve with a drizzle of chocolate and more fresh strawberries, and you’ll be in berry heaven.

11. Pink Party Donuts

If the name doesn’t say enough, let me tell ya – these donuts are fun!

They’re also crazy-delicious, perfect for parties, and totally Instagram-worthy. So have your phone ready to snap!

Each little cinnamon-flavored, heart-shaped donut is baked to perfection. Every bite is sweet, soft, and not even remotely greasy. 

Basically, you can eat a bunch of these without feeling too heavy. Plus, they’re covered in a delightful simple pink vanilla glaze.

12. Cold Beetroot Soup a.k.a Lithuanian Pink Soup

Meet Lithuania’s answer to gazpacho.

If cold soup doesn’t sound appealing to you, I urge you to give this a try. It’s absolutely delicious. 

Lithuanian pink soup is super refreshing and very light yet filling. It’s the perfect lunch for a hot summer day. 

Made with pickled beets, cucumber, dill, spring onions, and plain kefir, it’s also topped with hard-boiled eggs for extra protein. 

Warm potatoes are served on the side to complete your meal. But it’s super tasty on its own too.

13. Pink Velvet Cupcakes

Like the classic red velvet, pink velvet cake is vibrant and delicious. Top it with a cream cheese frosting, and you’re in business! 

These cupcakes are the definition of soft. Each bite is perfectly pillowy and over-the-top amazing.

And the frosting? Oh man, it’s so sweet and fabulously tangy. 

These cupcakes are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, birthday parties, or baby showers.

Or just any event you want a deliciously fun cupcake. 

14. Chilled Pink Sugar Cookies

Here comes a ginormous treat your whole family will love. These thick and chunky sugar cookies taste amazing and look great, too! 

Every cookie features lovely notes of almond and vanilla in both the cookie and the delicious pink frosting.

Chill before eating, and your taste buds will explode! 

I recommend dusting the frosting with freeze-dried raspberry powder for an even bigger taste explosion. You won’t regret it! 

15. Pink Pickled Deviled Eggs

These pink pickled deviled eggs are sinfully delicious. I they’re even more flavorful than your typical deviled eggs.

The secret is to quick-pickle hard-boiled eggs before deviling them.

These are marinated in pickled beet juice for at least 12 hours. This achieves maximum flavor and pinkness. 

The yolk mixture is also super flavorful with mustard, chives, honey, mayo, and salt.

You simply cannot escape the flavor. So get yours right away because they’ll go fast!
