My daughters and I are in love with all things Unicorn especially Unicorn Food. However, most of the Unicorn Food recipes are made with lots of artificial dyes and flavorings. So I did some research and have come up with the 10 most magical, all-natural kid-friendly Unicorn Food recipes that are as healthy as they are beautiful.
This week on the blog, I’m celebrating all things UNICORN and Believe in a Cure for Breast Cancer. So of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t showcase some of my favorite healthy unicorn food ideas.
Unicorn food is sweeping the nation!
For those unfamiliar with this magical food trend, it’s where you create beautiful pastel colored concoctions of your favorite foods like Unicorn ice cream, Unicorn toast, Unicorn lattes, Unicorn energy bites, etc.
Here’s a picture of my daughter enjoying a Unicorn rainbow bagel last week.
The sky’s the limit! With a little creativity, you can turn pretty much anything in to unicorn food…even sushi! (Yes! Sushi! Keep reading for that magical recipe!)
Usually these magical treats are made with loads of food coloring (as I’m sure was the case with the unicorn bagel above—ok don’t judge! I’m definitely not perfect.)
So I’ve scoured the web to find my favorite healthy alternatives which use all natural ingredients such as spirulina, beets, or berries to achieve their magical spell.
Note—some of the recipes do use regular sprinkles, but you can certainly get all-natural sprinkles online or at your favorite health food store, and some of the recipes do use all-natural food coloring.

Now, if you make that all-natural Unicorn toast, like Ashley Rose from Sugar and Cloth, then you’ve got the fixings for a truly magical morning.

My girls love popsicles after school. I can’t even imagine how excited they would be if we made these healthy,Skinny Unicorn Pops from Amanda at The Skinny Fork.

Amrita, from Crazy Vegan Kitchen, created these delectable butterscotch treat bars to bring back the memories of her favorite childhood rainbow ice cream dessert. Instead of dairy ice cream, she combines vegan ingredients such as Raw Cashews, Soy Milk, Maple Syrup, etc to make these beautiful squares of which only a unicorn would be truly proud.

This unicorn bark would be a fun idea at holiday time. With only a healthy ingredients (such as greek yogurt, honey, banana, and strawberries), it’s definitely a great healthier version of the higher calorie traditional treat.
