Unicorn Smoothie!

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:

  1. 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:

  1. 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.)
  2. 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!
