Homemade Unicorn Shake

This week the “Unicorn Shake” at Starbucks is literally dominating social media. It’s been described as anything from mango-tango to birthday cake in a cup.

Either way, my basic b**** senses tingled and I needed it.

The problem? Well…It doesn’t exactly align with my current nutrition program and I don’t really wanna work out for 2 hours to kinda make it #worthit.

But – fear not, and dare not suffer alone! Here’s a healthier version you can make at home, for $1 cheaper!

(AHHHHHH hallelujah sound)

My biggest shocker with it? It really does change flavors! Now I may not be the best barista, but ya know what – it’s yummy and gets me toward my goals. Here’s how you can make it too!

First things first, you’re gonna need Shakeology – if you don’t have some you can order it here – my favorite is chocolate, but this recipe can be made with strawberry or vanilla!

Next – go pick some berries! Ok – or go to your fridge or the grocery store, and go to town!

Unicorn Shakeology for 1

21 Day Fix – 1 purple, 1 red

  • 1/2 cup chopped mango or melon
  • 1/2 cup blueberries or blackberries
  • 1 packet strawberry Shakeology
  • Pinch of shredded coconut
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup ice

Blend half the ice, half the water, and half the Shakeology with the berries. Pour half into your drinking glasses (it should be 1/3 full). Next blend the melon with the remaining ice and water and pour over the mixture in the cup to one side, it will swirl! Add the remaining mixture and top with coconut “sprinkles”.

Oh, and I guess I’ll splurge – whipped cream on top! (Hey it’s better than 3 Snickers!)

Healthy food can be fun too!
