Rainbow Unicorn Protein Smoothie Bowls. Rainbow food, using color therapy, is said to actually be beneficial in more ways then nutritionally, it can stave off hunger pains, help you lose weight, boost your mood. So make your meal pretty, color it with berries, and adorn it with flowers. In fact, my London-born mother always says “If you have 5 pence, spend 4 on bread and 1 on a flower.” And influenced by this thinking, we set our breakfast table colorfully with napkins, and flowers and a water glass for each. It starts our day in such a cheery way.
We have also made them recently as parfaits here!
Happy colorful breakfast to you too!

Rainbow Unicorn Protein Smoothie Bowls
For Smoothie Bowls : Makes 3 cups
- 2 1/2 cups plant yogurt
- 2 tbsp white chia seeds
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- 1/2 cup mango
- 1 tsp spirulina
To make both the bowl and parfaits
Blend up the yogurt with the chia seeds and lemon juice - it freshens the flavor.
- Divide that into four bowls.
To make the bowls
Stir in the berries, fruit and spirulina into each to create a pink bowl, a purple bowl, a yellow bowl, and a blue/green bowl.
- Distribute in family smoothie bowls for all. I topped mine with coconut dust, pitaya and melon stars, nuts, oats, quinoa pops and fruit for a heavenly unicorn morning.
To make the parfaits
Stir in the matcha in one bowl to make green, the beet powder in another to make dark pink, the blue spirulina in another to make blue, and blend up the blueberries into the last bowl to make purple.
- Distribute the colors into parfait glasses, and pipe white yogurt with a french star tip!
