When you think about yellow foods there’s probably a list of individual foods, or fruits & veggies that come to mind, such as: 

  • Lemon
  • Banana
  • Corn
  • Pineapple
  • Potatoes
  • yellow squash
  • yellow pepper

Sometimes these foods will turn a recipe yellow and other times it’ll completely change color depending on what other foods it’s mixed with.

So, let me share some of my favorite naturally yellow colored foods.

Use these for Halloween or when teaching kids about colors, for themed food nights, or to simply enjoy!
