A Healthy Unicorn Frappe
If you’re a fan of the unicorn food craze—and who doesn’t get even a little excited by pretty hues, glitter, and sprinkles? We’ve got a healthy take on a beautifully blended drink that’s perfect for summer. Our recipe uses sweet strawberries to create a natural pink color, and coconut milk and coconut yogurt provide added nutrients. Our secret ingredient is vanilla- and coconut-flavored Collagen Fuel, a protein powder that, in addition to providing some tropical flavor, may help support healthy joints, tendons, and muscles. Drink up!
Yield: 2 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
For the strawberry sauce
1 pound organic strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced in half
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon raw honey
For the frappe
2 scoops Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel, Vanilla Coconut
1 cup organic vanilla coconut yogurt
1 cup coconut milk, unsweetened
2 organic bananas
1 cup ice
6 drops natural blue food coloring (optional)
To Make the strawberry sauce
Add strawberries, water, and honey to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until strawberries break down and liquid has thickened a bit. When cool, blend until smooth.
To Make the frappe
In a blender, add Collagen Fuel, yogurt, coconut milk, and bananas. Blend until smooth. Add blue food coloring (if using) and ice, then blend just until combined and ice is still slushy. In a tall glass, smear 2 tablespoons of strawberry sauce around the inside of the glass in a circular motion. Gently fill the glass with the yogurt mixture. Drink immediately.
