I’m a little late to join the unicorn game, but I decided to see what all the buzz was about.
While I appreciate the pretty blues and pinks (I mean who doesn’t want to eat pretty food?!), I cannot abide the exorbitant amounts of sugar and artificial colors in most “unicorn food.”
So obvi I had to create an awesome healthy alternative that is actually practical for human consumption. Introducing…the Unicorn Coconut Yogurt Parfait.
It’s all things healthy like dairy free, refined sugar free, no artificial colors, probiotic, high fiber, and plenty of protein. I’ve included links to some of the products I use to make it easy for you to get some. Enjoy!!!!
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup filtered water
1 tbs hemp hearts
3 tbs chia seeds
Whisk the above ingredients in a bowl and let stand 10 minutes or so, whisking it up occasionally to keep everything well mixed. You could also let this soak overnight in the fridge.
Mix in the coconut yogurt and stevia, and I recommend these two brands specifically. The coconut yogurt is super rich and thick and delicious. No other brand compares. Omica Organics makes a really clean stevia product that doesn’t have that bitter aftertaste.
Next up, divide the chia yogurt base into 3 bowls. Choose how much you want for each color. Here are the products I mixed in for totally natural, plant-based colors:
Blue Majik is a phycocyanin extract, which is basically the blue pigment extracted out of spirulina. A little bit of this goes a long way for color.
Fermented beet powder is a great option if you want a meal that is low sugar. The fermenting process “eats” up the sugars from the beets.
Both these products are essentially super foods with braggable health benefits, so be sure to check out the links. Use as much as you like to get the color you want.
After coloring, I placed the three yogurt bowls back into the fridge for a bit to prevent the colors from running during the layering process.
Layer the yogurt base up in any color order you like, then top with fresh berries and granola. There are plenty of grain-free, sugar-free versions these days. Choose one you love. Sprinkle with more hemp seeds, bee pollen, and coconut yogurt. And most important of all, RELISH EVERY BITE!
