Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Peanut Butter-Banana Unicorn Shake

2018年8月8日

Let me start by saying:  I don’t really understand this whole unicorn trend.

I just don’t.  Maybe it’s the 40-year-old in me, but the idea of unicorn everything these days is getting a little excessive.  From hair color to unicorn tears lipstick to unicorn colored banana bread (??), it’s just showing up everywhere.  I can’t log onto social media without seeing something new that is unicorn colored.

And then, the Starbucks frappuccino was released, and it looked so pretty.  All those colors… and then I read about the flavors, and well…  there was no way I was going to try it.  The flavors sounded miserable to me, and the calorie content was WAY beyond anything that I should be adding to my day.

And then… it struck me.  I could make my own UNICORN shake at home, and choose my own flavors that was completely Jenny Craig friendly!

Behold: The NTTC version of the ridiculously popular and short-lived unicorn frappuccino.  I mixed just a few ingredients with the Jenny Craig Vanilla Cream Shake to make this beauty.  And, while I drink a non-colored version of this on the regular, today it tasted extra delicious much attributed to the fact that it was so pretty.

In the end, I can’t decide if I like the unicorn trend, or if I’m still annoyed.  The one thing I know I love though… is this shake.  Try it, my dears!
