Unicorn food has officially hit a fever pitch, y'all. Call it a trend, call it a coping mechanism, call it a way to make your food pretty again—it's all of the above, and more. An offshoot of the superfood movement, "unicorn" goodies are generally pastel shade treats that are loaded with good-for-you herbs and powders that pack beautifying, health-boosting properties, taste delicious, and are inherently Instagrammable. Last summer we reported on the blue algae latte that was the tipping point. This week, we've had our eyes tuned to this incredible rainbow unicorn toast that's caused us to maybe forget about avocados for good (not really).
Our secret weapon for adding a unicorn oomph to our smoothies and breakfast bowls comes courtesy of Philosophie Superfoods' amazingly potent blends, which make it easy to up the nutrient quotient of absolutely anything you're whizzing up in the blender. As a partner in The Wanderlust subscription box, Philosphie has taught us how to incorporate the superfood blends like Berry Bliss (our hands-down fave), which is loaded with mangosteen, acai, camu camu and maca, into our morning yogurt to add a burst of tart berry flavor and a hyper-load of antioxidants, or top off our post-gym fresh fruit smoothie so the result is a berry blast of flavor plus tons of protein, vitamin C, and antioxidants.
Philosophie founder Sophie Jaffe (Phila-Sophie, get it?) is a raw food chef and nutritionist who has infused her in-depth nutritional knowledge into many of Philosophie's signature recipes, and she's hit it out of the park with her Moon Pearl Latte, a drink that's a must-make for anyone who's hopping on the unicorn bandwagon.
