My boy and I are so sick these days, the dreaded colds and flu from January have continued into February and there seems to be no end in sight. Everything is such an effort for
the both of us me, he's still bouncing around the house in his sick state, seriously, where do toddlers get their energy from and why do we lose it as we grow up?! I put together this little sweet treat to cheer us both up - unicorn food!
This is super simple to put together, it's just about adding as much colour as you can. Tyler Lee's was substantially healthier than mine, he just had some ice-cream, sprinkles and rainbow drops, I went all out - marshmallows, Lovehearts, pastel sweets and edible glitter, it was amazing. It's funny how something so simple can really make your day, I loved all the texture with the raspberry ripple ice-cream, yum is the only word I can use to describe this concoction.
My little one really did love this, especially the rainbow drops and I was glad because they were the only healthy thing in the mix really, rice adorned with all the colours of the rainbow.
I have so many healthy version of this in my head but to be honest, being this sick, an injection of sugar isn't going to do me any harm and the ice-cream really helped to soothe mine and Tyler Lee's sore throats... any excuse for ice-cream!
I think unicorn food is the perfect name for this mixture of colour, it's so pretty, just like a unicorn (liking my thought process there)!
This would be such a fun thing to put together for a birthday party or date night with a good film, it's such a simple thing to just pop lots of sweet treats in a bowl but it's so good. I'll have to make a version with skittles and jellies for my other half, he'd love it.
A spoon of unicorn loveliness!
The unicorn food really cheered my boy and I up, ice-cream really can solve all the worlds problems (or our sore throats at least!). I love putting together little treats like this for us to have during our mama and baba time. The best thing about unicorn food is that you can pop whatever you like into the bowl. I'd love to try this with some mango frozen yogurt next time and some colourful fruits (a lot healthier than this version I'm sure you'll agree). Unicorn Food can be put together using anything, just as long as it's colourful of course.
Do you like the look of my unicorn food creation? Would you love a bowl of this too?
