Something undeniably magical is happening in the wellness world right now: Unicorn food has taken over, and not only is it beautiful—a rainbow of pastel pink, baby blue, and amethyst purple—but the ingredient lists are superfood-packed as well.

That golden streak on Adeline Waugh (AKA Vibrant & Pure)'s unicorn toast? The not-so secret ingredient is healing turmeric. The base for those lattes? Blue algae—which is loaded with protein, iron, potassium, and zinc.

Best of all, you don't have to live in Brooklyn to eat like a mythical creature.

Here are 8 beautiful, bursting-with-benefits unicorn food recipes you can make at home—no toxic dyes required.

2. Unicorn Latte

Hey, even unicorns like latte breaks—they just prefer that theirs be spiked with blue algae instead of espresso. Make your own The End-approved wellness beverage with nut milk, a dash of ginger, and energy-boosting maca.
