Starbucks made headlines this week with the limited release of their Unicorn Frappuccino. If you’re not familiar with this colorful drink, it’s a coffee-less milkshake made with a number of syrups, including vanilla, mango, and a blue-colored white mocha sauce, to make a sweet and tart flavored drink.
To make the drizzle:
- Stir together the cashew butter, spirulina, and water. The mixture should be thick and blueish-green in color. Scoop the mixture into a frosting bag or plastic bag for piping into the glass later, and set the bag aside in the freezer while you make the smoothie.
To make the smoothie:
- Combine the water, orange juice, mango, banana, and pitaya puree in a high-speed blender and blend until thick and smooth. (If you don’t have a high-speed blender, you might need to add more water to help it blend.)
- To assemble the smoothie, cut the tip off of the plastic piping bag filled with the blue-green drizzle and pipe it around the sides of a glass. Pour the smoothie into the decorated glass, then top with whipped cream, if desired. Crush the freeze-dried strawberries and blueberries between your fingers to create “sprinkles” on top of the whipped cream, then serve!
