Do It Yourself Unicorn Frappuccino
When did we all become so basic?
Don’t get me wrong: when September/October rolls around I’m probably one of the first people in line for a Pumpkin Spice Latte at either Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. But I think Starbucks might have taken it a bit to far this time. I have no idea why or if there is actually a reason behind it, but for a few days this week Starbucks sold the Unicorn Frappuccino.
According to Starbucks official website, the Unicorn Frappuccino contains “magical flavors” that start out sweet and switches it up on your tastebuds by becoming fruity and sour all while changing color.
Then, of course, because it’s Starbucks, “It’s finished with whipped cream-sprinkled pink and blue fairy powders.” A grande Unicorn Frapp totals out at 410 calories and around $6. Also, big twist, there’s no caffeine involved.
A few Starbucks locations sold out of the Unicorn Frappuccino so I figured I would make a homemade version.
*Author’s note: I call it Unicorn Poop. Don’t ask me why.

Yeah, no. I’m not drinking that. Call me when the Pumpkin Spice is back.
