Last week, Starbucks introduced a special drink that was only available for a limited time. Yes, it was offer to the general public for less than a week only! Many of my friends and family rushed to their nearest Starbucks locations and lined up for this specialty drink: The infamous Unicorn Frappuccino! Were you one of them who tried?
Unfortunately, the review and feedback of this drink was not as positive as the enthusiasm of the Starbucks fans! It was quite a mixed review, I must say. Some described it as a refreshing sour mango-flavored drink. Some said it was a waste of money and tasted too artificial, etc. I guess, the artificial came from the coloring of the drink?
Hence today, I’m sharing my
Yes, all natural color in my recipe, including this gorgeous hue of blue! If you haven’t watch my video tutorial above, what are you still waiting for? You’ll discover the secret ingredient that I used to create this gorgeous blue color! It was truly magical to see the transformation of the color!
My homemade version of the Unicorn Frappuccino is a Blue Vanilla Frappuccino, layered with Purple Blackberry Frappuccino, topped with cotton candy and edible gold stars! It’s whimsical, magical, refreshing and oh so delicious! The sweetness from the Vanilla Frappuccino balanced really well with the tangy Blackberry Frappuccino layer! Of course, you can top these with whipped cream instead of cotton candy. But I think the cotton candy adds a layer of dreaminess to this special drink! If you’re hosting a Unicorn themed party, this drink will definitely be the star of the show!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Leave me a comment below and tell me if you’ve tried the Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino and what did you think about it? If you tried my homemade version, be sure to let me know as well! I would love to hear from you! Stay tuned for more fun and magical recipe next week!
