Unicorn toast is a breakfast trend we can definitely get behind.

in Food by

Have you seen thisย seriously colourful toast popping up in your Instagram feed lately? Some are calling it unicorn toast, some have dubbed it mermaid toast, but either way, breakfast just got awesome.

At first, I was a little panicked about the food colouring (because I’m a mom and I thinkย about stuff like that 24/7) but then I read more into it and realized that most of these crafty breakfasteers are actually dying their cream cheese or cashew butter topping with things like turmeric (for yellow), matcha (for green), blue algae (whoa), beet juice (think pink!), and more.

Now THIS I can getย behind. They’ve managed to make something healthy look like junk food and I can’t wait to try it.

I guess mermaid toast is officially a thing if @foodandwine did a feature on it… what!? ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐ŸŒŠ Beyond flattered…the name sticks for this aquatic creation. I feel like I'm about to go on a mild rant: So, this happened when I put unicorn toast out there too… there will be so many wonderful comments and articles covering it- but then there are also so many people and articles hating on it; saying it's "silly" and asking, "why?" Or "who has time for that?!" Let me just put this out there: I am just having fun! I am a food stylist and I like to create beautiful things using food- I've never claimed to be starting a trend or a putting out a new recipe that is super practical- it's 100% impractical, I just like to play around in the kitchen and attempt to create something aesthetically pleasing and unique from time to time. Also, I don't know about you, but with everything going on in the world today, sometimes I just want to look at some colorful food. Okay- rant over, phew ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I shouldn't even pay attention to the negativity when there's so much positivity from everyone out there, and for that- I'm extremely appreciative! โค๏ธ Link in bio to check out the F&W article on #mermaidtoast #vibrantandpure

I seriously can’t wait to makeย this. I have a feeling my 8-year-old is going to lose her ish when she sees magical toast coming her way.

Do you think you’ll try making your own unicorn toast?ย ๐Ÿฆ„
