If you follow us on Instagram then you probably already know we went to all the Starbucks near us today and EVERYWHERE was sold out of the Unicorn Frappuccino. We’re a day late and a frappuccino short, apparently! The boys wanted to try it and despite the fact we heard it was … not the greatest … we thought it’d be fun to let them give it a taste (if for no other reason than their anticipated reactions).
Unfortunately, the universe decided it didn’t want them to sugar up on the cotton-candy-colored, trendy concoction, but instead of going home empty-handed we decided to make our own unicorn brew. After all, there’s enough room in this world for more than one unicorn inspired drink, right?
We tend not to feed the boys a ton of sugar, so this was a treat! We opted for some slightly less unhealthy ingredients (but let’s be serious, sugar is sugar) and it came out pretty darn good. It was sweet, but not too sweet, and a teeny bit tart. Yum!
We made it super simple and blender-free because these guys aren’t operating a blender anytime soon and we assume most ADHDers their age aren’t either. 😉
Also, if you want to make this completely dairy free, opt for dairy-free whipped cream instead of traditional whipped cream!
- 2 flavors of sorbet
- natural soda
- whipped cream
- rainbow sprinkles
We hope you enjoy it if you give it a whirl and please feel free to share your unicorn inspired drinks with us below.
