The Unicorn Frappuccino® Blended Crème hit social media like a ton of Sugar. As a diabetic, I had to avoid it. Ya know, it’s bad for Diabetics to drink sugar. This sweet drink was almost all sugar 59g per 16 fl oz.  Let’s add some perspective on this, each 16 oz. has about 18 sugar cubes in it, NOT icecubes–sugar cubes!   Two times more than an average soda.

“According to the coffee giant, it’s a “flavor and color-changing creation” made with a dusting of pink powder blended into a mango creme Frappuccino and layered with a sour powder topping. When you stir the drink, the color transforms from purple to pink, and the flavor goes from sweet and fruity to tangy and tart.”

Ok IF you’re not a diabetic, then who cares about the sugar, right? Many at Psych Cental have written about the dangers of sugar in respect to Depression.

Personally, I’m happy the Unicorn Frappuccino is gone; not cause I don’t like it or anything. I am more worried that I will like it and give in to temptation next time.

The Magical UniMoo

It got me thinking, where do all the pink and blue fairy powders come from? How did Starbucks make a Unicorn Frappuccino? That’s when I discovered the wonders of the Uni-Moo.  They must have a Uni-Moo, it’s the only answer!

(The Uni-Moo was the idea of one of my girls.  She loved the concept and together we drew this special unicorn cow.  She named it the “UniMoo!”)

What I know about the UniMoo:

  • 100% Vegan
  • They give Milk of all flavors.
  • The UniMoo doesn’t have wings, it doesn’t fly, but it can hover.
  • Most likely the real driving force behind the Unicorn Frappuccino® Blended Crème.

Help me discover more about the rare gifts of the Uni-Moo.
