Unicorn Pudding Recipe

Unicorn Frappucinos. Taste the rainbow. Lisa Frank.

There’s no denying that there’s a huge appeal to the bright, beautiful colors associated with unicorns, rainbows and the charcters on every 90’s gal’s fourth grade binder. So when Starbucks released a limited edition brightly colored frankenfood Unicorn Frappucino this April 2017, I totally understood the allure. It was speaking to my inner 90s kid who loved Rainbow Brite and My Little Ponies. And apparently, it spoke to the rest of the world too since Starbucks had a massive influx of sales during the Unicorn Frapp’s short lifespan with lines out the door and sold-out frapps for miles. I witnessed the mania myself last weekend as I ran around NYC, grateful that I would never sacrifice my health for a sip of the sugar laden, fat laced drink.

I mean, yuh, the colors were pretty…but the drink was loaded with enough sugar to stand in for several candy bars and more fat than a McDonald’s cheeseburger (!!!). Um, nah thanks. I got a bikini to rock in like a month.

But I am excited that there was such hype around a beverage simply because it was brightly colored. I mean, c’monnnn peeps. Ya know what else is brightly colored? FRUITS AND VEG. If we can get excited about some color, then I think we can start trying some fruits & veg on for size.

Thus, my Unicorn Chia Seed Pudding was born. You can watch the Facebook Live broadcast above — where not only do I show ya guys how to make the pudding, but explain the fat blasting benefits of coconut and chia seeds.
