All the colours of the rainbow (and more)
Eating a variety of colourful food and vegetables makes for a balanced and nutritional diet.
But they never specified whether it was to be taken literally or not. And some did.
Here are 6 beautiful rainbow desserts that taste as good as they look.
The franchise from the United States, which used to be in Singapore in the late 2000s, has returned with a new store at VivoCity. The rainbow-coloured beads of ice cream (from $5.50) are frozen instantly using liquid nitrogen at extremely low temperatures.
Flavours include Rainbow Ice, lemon lime, cookies and cream, and double chocolate.

To achieve the rainbow colours, vegetable puree is mixed into the cheese – beetroot is used for pink, carrot for orange and yellow, spinach for green, potato and butterfly pea flower for blue, and red cabbage for violet.
