Vegan Unicorn Smoothie

 

Did you see the craziness about the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino on Instagram last week? We did and it was giving us a little bit of FOMO, so we decided recreate the drink in a more-healthy, veganized way.

This recipe is a three parter, starting with the blue syrup and ending with the toppings. Feel free to skip the coconut whip or blue syrup (just because these things can be a little bit of a pain in the ass when making), because the pink smoothie is bomb on its' own. But, if you're an over-achiever and really want to go for it- make all three parts. And then show us your creation so we can have FOMO all over again. We're on Instagram and Facebook.

Syrup (optional):

  • 3 tbsp non-dairy yogurt
  • ¼ tsp spirulina

Toppings (optional):

  • 2 tbsp coconut whipped cream

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make the syrup. Combine yogurt with spirulina, mixing well. Swirl yogurt around glass (see video for technique). Place in freezer while making the smoothie.
