Have you heard all about the Unicorn Hot Chocolate trend?  

It’s so fun! Perfect for kids and young-at-heart adults.  

We came up with our own semi-healthy version and added a summertime twist; ice cold unicorn smoothies!

Unicorn Smoothie

Using California blueberries and strawberries, we made our own version of the whimsical drink that’s not only super fun to sip, but full of natural ingredients that I’m sure you have readily available in your fridge right now. Really, only three ingredients make up this fabulous frappe!

Plain Greek yogurt, milk, and blueberries in blender

In a blender, add 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup of chopped fruit… I used blueberries!

And strawberries. I layered the two flavors on top of each other to make the presentation even more magical!

I started with the blueberries combo and placed the smoothie in the freezer while I whipped up the strawberry combo. It helps the bottom layer set up a bit so when you pour the second layer on top, it doesn’t mix.

Add a fat layer of fresh whipped cream! This part is optional and might reduce the healthy factor a bit, but c’mon, we’re talking unicorns here!

Add a fun straw with a whipped cream “horn” to the top and beckon rainbows and butterflies!

My kids loved the layers of different flavors and colors. It really is a fun and healthy drink that will keep them satisfied all summer…

They’re already begging me for more!
