The unicorn popsicle is 100% fruit. I did not use food coloring. Sugar-free, since the fruit is sufficiently sweet and completely healthy by the different fruit varieties.
The hype around the unicorn
After this hype was created by the chocolate business “Rittersport” and it does not seem to weaken, I thought I would simply join. There are so many great colorful possibilities. After I discovered the great Unicorn Popsicles, it naturally had to become an ice, which stands for the unicorn. The weather has invited to an ice cream, too. Very refreshing through fruit purees.
Are you also spoiled by the hype?
The Unicorn stands for something magical, mad. For dreams. Especially in the present time, when we hear almost only bad news, the unicorn give us hope in a way.
Popsicle as unicorn
Since the unicorn is beautifully colorful, the colors of the ice has to be there, which already has the shape of a unicorn. I try to avoid food color as far as possible.
When you hear ice, you first think of a calorie bomb. Here I show you that it goes also healthy and completely without food color. What does not offer more than various fruit ice creams?! Here you can of course take the fruit varieties, which taste you the best.
What did I take for fruit?
I have taken the fruit varieties, which fit best to a unicorn.
The basis for all ice cream varieties are bananas (Nicecream) and to maintain the respective shade, I have mixed different fruit varieties.
What colors have emerged?
This ice cream not only looks completely colorful and tastes great. It is also totally healthy. Here is a small view into the nutrients of the fruits I used:
Bananas: potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin C, A, K, B6
Strawberries: Vitamin C, A, B2, B3, E, K, folic acid,
Raspberries: Vitamin B1, B2, C, A, Iron
Blueberries: potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamins C, E
Kiwi: vitamin C, E, B, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, antioxidants
Melon: Vitamin A, B1, B2,, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus
Mango: carotene, vitamin C, E, B, potassium, magnesium, calcium
You can do such a vitamin bomb just by yourself.
Toddlers are happy with the ice cream too
My little girl (10 months) can also eat a little bit of the ice cream. Especially it is just fruit and she gets a lot of vitamins. And it helps her for teething.
