It’s easy to fall in love with this Rainbow Unicorn Smoothie – you would never guess it’s actually green!
Perfect for your kids or anyone who thought green smoothies are lame.
The blue colour is best made with blue spirulina powder.
The pink colour can be created with raspberries only – to make it pop, add a bit of pink pitaya or beetroot powder.
You can get these natural food colourings at organic stores or online.
