According to a few (OK, a lot) of sources, the new Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino is a huge hit. But, it's only available for a limited time — so, what are you going to do when the frappuccino is no longer around to purchase? Don't worry: you can still enjoy a delicious and aesthetically pleasing treat right at home if you follow one of these unicorn drink and snack ideas.
Personally, I'm down to try all of these. When I’m not at work, I’m pretty much at home making a new recipe.
Now before I dive in, I have to make a quick comment on this beautiful unicorn trend. Is anyone else noticing that everything (and I mean, everything) can now be turned into a unicorn? And it’s not as easy as throwing on some glitter and sprinkles — no, no, it involves tons of marshmallows and mini unicorn horns and rainbows and glitter galore. I want to hate the trend, but to be totally honest with you, I’m kind of into it. While I love the whole “neutral tones always and forever" aesthetic that is so popular on Instagram, I'm also super ready for some bright pops of color to come back into the world — and if it takes unicorning the crap out of everything we eat and drink, I'm all in.
So now, you may unicorn the crap out of your kitchen with the following rainbow treats!
