With all of the unicorn hullabaloo, I decided to whip up another fun protein packed and wholesome take on a unicorn inspired dish. It's true. These Skinny Unicorn Popsicles are not only cute and inspired by the mythical magical creature of legend, they are also better-for-you in so many ways!
I'm no stranger to the magic of unicorns. I made a rather magical Skinny Unicorn Ice Cream Cake a while back and it's easy to see why it became a fast favorite. However, this time around I wanted to take it a step further and use all natural food coloring. Yep! Not only are these popsicles dairy-free, they are also free of artificial colors.
Along with the easy to use all natural food colors that I got my hands on, I also used the new Silk Protein Nutmilk for the base of the popsicle. Silk Protein Nutmilk is made with protein from 100% pea, with the delicious combination of almond and cashew milk. It's thick and creamy and I knew right away it would make the perfect popsicle. There's 10 grams of soy-free, plant-based goodness in a serving of Silk Protein Nutmilk. I used the vanilla flavor, along with a touch of Vanilla Silk Almond Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative to give me a denser and creamy popsicle.
Now that the weather is getting warmer (up almost to the 90's here in Texas already), these little sweet treats are the perfect way to stay cool and guilt free! Plus, they couldn't be more easy to make with just at 5 ingredients, two of which are coloring and sprinkles!
Yum! I'm absolutely in love with these popsicles and I can't wait to let my little girl try one when she gets home from school this afternoon. She is completely for anything rainbow, glittery, sprinkle or otherwise unicorn-esque.
