Let me start by saying: I don’t really understand this whole unicorn trend.
I just don’t. Maybe it’s the 40-year-old in me, but the idea of unicorn everything these days is getting a little excessive. From hair color to unicorn tears lipstick to unicorn colored banana bread (??), it’s just showing up everywhere. I can’t log onto social media without seeing something new that is unicorn colored.
And then, the Starbucks frappuccino was released, and it looked so pretty. All those colors… and then I read about the flavors, and well… there was no way I was going to try it. The flavors sounded miserable to me, and the calorie content was WAY beyond anything that I should be adding to my day.
And then… it struck me. I could make my own UNICORN shake at home, and choose my own flavors that was completely Jenny Craig friendly!
Behold: The NTTC version of the ridiculously popular and short-lived unicorn frappuccino. I mixed just a few ingredients with the Jenny Craig Vanilla Cream Shake to make this beauty. And, while I drink a non-colored version of this on the regular, today it tasted extra delicious much attributed to the fact that it was so pretty.
In the end, I can’t decide if I like the unicorn trend, or if I’m still annoyed. The one thing I know I love though… is this shake. Try it, my dears!
Peanut Butter-Banana Unicorn Shake
1 cup ice cubes
2 Tbsp. peanut butter powder (I use PB2)
1/2 frozen banana
blue food coloring
pink food coloring
1. Combine your shake, ice, peanut butter powder and banana in a blender and blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
2. Remove 1/3 cup of the shake to a small dish and color it pink.
3. Add several drops of blue food coloring to the blender and mix for a few moments, until well combined.
4. Add shake to a clear glass, and fill about 2/3 full. Layer the pink shake and fill to the top with blue.
5. Top with sprinkles, if desired… and enjoy!
