Unicorn Smoothie Bowl Ingredients
To make your unicorn smoothie bowl successful, you’ll need the following:

How to Make a Unicorn Smoothie Bowl
Add your frozen blueberries, strawberries, milk, honey and cinnamon into your blender for a little smoothie blend party.
Blend until smooth. I know you’ll be tempted here to have some, but don’t! You’ve got a smoothie bowl recipe to make, this is just the start!
Add just a dollop of your Greek yogurt into the smoothie, right smack dab in the center. Use a fork to marble the yogurt into the smoothie. Heck, let the kids get creative here! You know?
To decorate your unicorn smoothie bowl, break out the food coloring and shredded coconut.
For each color you want to use (we used blue, purple, and green since the smoothie bowl was already berry colored), place the shredded coconut into sandwich bags with 1-2 drops in each bag of each color. Shake it, baby!
Have your kids shake the colored shredded coconut, make it even more fun for ’em! It isn’t hard to do, either!
Once the shredded coconut is well colored in each bag, place it on top of your smoothie bowl. Arrange it in lines, however you (or your kids) would like!
