I’m keeping the unicorn trend alive by sharing 15 of the best healthy unicorn recipes.
Do shimmery rainbows, pastel water colours and iridescent hues bring back nostalgic, comforting childhood memories? Or maybe it makes you think of cotton candy, Care Bears, My Little Pony or Lucky Charms. Whatever it reminds you of, I’m sure we can all agree that there’s something about bright and colourful foods that adds that extra “oomph” and MAGIC compared to plain regular food. There’s definitely a “don’t worry, be happy” kind of vibe that brings us back to times when things were playful, simpler and innocent. Let’s be real. We adults need our fun too! Which is why I’m all about that unicorn life and want to share with you guys 15 of the best healthy unicorn recipes.
This unicorn food trend (ie unicorn “fever”) all began with the vibrant unicorn toast and has made more and more people “crave the rainbow” in their food ever since. Food bloggers and recipe developers have continued developing more innovative and exciting beautiful recipes that fit the #Unicornfood theme. The unique multi-coloured and oftentimes glittery features of unicorn recipes are usually made with colours from natural food dyes (typically super-hyped “superfoods”) such as spirulina, chlorella, matcha (for green), blue-green algae/Blue Majik (for blue), beet, pitaya or hibiscus powder (for pink), turmeric (for yellow) and shisho herb (for purple). These recipes I’ve conjured up for this round-up were designed with nutrition in mind, so you don’t need to worry about whether they’re good for you or not (but don’t go OTT with them!). They’re healthy, creative and aesthetically-pleasing to the eye, with a selection of vegan options!
Now, let’s enter the fantasy realm of unicorn dreams, shall we? Here are my choices for the TOP 15 Healthy Unicorn recipes to revive those good ‘ol memories!
