Spread the coconut flakes in an even layer on a tray, and dehydrate for 6-10 hours until dry.
Pre-mix the natural food dye in 6 small containers by adding the powdered dye to a little bit of water. Be bold with the color – it’s cooler when it’s super saturated!
Evenly divide the dried coconut flakes into 6 small piles. Add one pile to each dye mix, and combine well. You can mix these in a small bowl with a fork, or put it in a plastic bag and shake it really well.
