Unicorn Frappe Recipe Makeover

*This article was originally published on Thrivemarket.com/blog

If you’re a fan of the unicorn food craze—and who doesn’t get even a little excited by pretty hues, glitter, and sprinkles? We’ve got a healthy take on a beautifully blended drink that’s perfect for summer. Our recipe uses sweet strawberries to create a natural pink color, and almond milk and coconut yogurt provide added nutrients. Our secret ingredient is vanilla- and coconut-flavored Collagen Fuel, a protein powder that, in addition to providing some tropical flavor, may help support healthy joints, tendons, and muscles. Drink up!

UNICORN FRAPPE

Yield: 2 servings

Total Time: 22 minutes

INGREDIENTS

For the strawberry sauce

  • 1 pound strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced in half
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon honey 

For the frappe

INSTRUCTIONS

Make the strawberry sauce

Add strawberries, water, and honey to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until strawberries break down and liquid has thickened a bit. When cool, blend until smooth.

Make the frappe

In a blender, add Collagen Fuel, yogurt, almond milk, and bananas. Blend until smooth. Add blue food coloring (if using) and ice, then blend just until combined and ice is still slushy. In a tall glass, smear 2 tablespoons of strawberry sauce around the inside of the glass in a circular motion. Gently fill the glass with the yogurt mixture. Drink immediately.
