Rainbow Unicorn Food Smoothie Bowls

It may seem like a strange concept that food can be colored, but it is true that food can be colored in many different ways – from greens and blues to reds and pinks. For the most part, though, what comes to most people’s minds when they think of rainbow colors is how their favorite cartoon characters look in their cartoons, and the way they sometimes act in their live-action TV shows.

The rainbow colors used in animations are very different than those used in real life, but that doesn’t mean that the rainbow colors in the food you can buy at your local convenience store are not nutritious! Rainbow unicorn food smoothie bowls are a healthy snack that is a lot of fun.

I have had many friends over for the weekend, who have been impressed with the colourful rainbow decorations on my freshly baked food. My first meal as a guest was an assortment of rainbow colored cakes, cookies and cupcakes with fresh organic berries sprinkled over each one.

The only bad thing about this particular meal was that the leftovers were not that great. The guests seemed to like it, but not enough to make me want to order them again.

When I shared with them how I designed my very own Rainbow Unicorn food smoothie, they were amazed at the simplicity and beauty of the process. Rainbow Unicorn is a popular children’s character who appears frequently in books and cartoons.

Many children love to collect Rainbow Unicorn figurines, and to make their own Rainbow Unicorn smoothie. To make this smoothie, you need to mix one cup of low-fat milk, one cup of fresh or frozen fruit (in moderation), one tablespoon of vanilla, one tablespoon of lemon juice, and one cup of fresh or frozen fruit. You can find this combination in any supermarket or health food store, and if you can’t find it, you can substitute orange juice concentrate.

Rainbow unicorn food smoothies are beneficial nutritionally as well as mentally. So I challenge you to boost your morning with a colorful unicorn food smoothie bowl – colored with fruits and veggies and superfoods.

Ingredients

  • For Smoothie Bowls : Makes 3 cups
  • 2 ½ cups plant yogurt

  • 2 tbsp white chia seeds

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • ½ cup blueberries

  • ½ cup raspberries

  • ½ cup mango

  • 1 tsp blue spirulina (I use this brand)

  • for Superfood Parfaits : Makes 3 cups
  • 2 ½ cups plant yogurt

  • 2 tbsp white chia seeds

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • ½ cup blueberries

  • ½ tsp ceremonial green matcha (I use this brand)

  • ½ tsp beet powder (I use this brand)

  • 1 tsp blue spirulina (I use this brand)

Directions

  • To make both the bowl and parfaits
  • Blend up the yogurt with the chia seeds and lemon juice – it freshens the flavor.
  • Divide that into four bowls.
  • To make the bowls
  • Stir in the berries, fruit and spirulina into each to create a pink bowl, a purple bowl, a yellow bowl, and a blue/green bowl.
  • Distribute in family smoothie bowls for all. I topped mine with coconut dust, pitaya and melon stars, nuts, oats, quinoa pops and fruit for a heavenly unicorn morning.
  • To make the parfaits
  • Stir in the matcha in one bowl to make green, the beet powder in another to make dark pink, the blue spirulina in another to make blue, and blend up the blueberries into the last bowl to make purple.
  • Distribute the colors into parfait glasses, and pipe white yogurt with a french star tip!
