Step aside, avocado toast, there's a new sheriff in town, and it's way more magical. Unicorn toast has officially made its debut, just when we thought the perfect breakfast food didn't exist. If your bland bowl of cereal just isn't cutting it every morning, this is the tasty and colourful solution you've been waiting for.
So how do you make these Instagram-worthy creations? Food stylist and photographer Adeline Waugh, who first graced the foodie world with these toasts, said that no artificial dyes are required to accomplish the toast's vibrant hues.
"I've been trying to incorporate red beets into as many creations as possible, ever since I realised that they can turn just about anything into the most ridiculously beautiful shade of hot pink," she told Teen Vogue. "I was using beet cream cheese to make colourful pink toast, and then it occurred to me that I could probably make additional colours of cream cheese using natural ingredients." The photographer prefers to mix freeze-dried strawberry powder into cream cheese for a light pink colour, drops of chlorophyll for a light green, and spirulina powder for light blue. The results are perfectly pastel concoctions that smear together on toast for a magical breakfast treat . . . or, let's be real, a snack you can enjoy any time of the day.
Though Adeline is noted as the founder of this enticing toast trend, she has inspired other adventurous, magic-seeking foodies to try it out as well. Keep reading for some of our favourite unicorn toast snapshots, and try out the recipe yourself to give your Instagram a colourful makeover.
