Healthy Unicorn Snack with NO Food Coloring for Kids

Healthy Unicorn Snack with NO Food Coloring for Kids

Like probably every 6 year old out there, my daughter is obsessed with Unicorns.

Here in LA, there is unicorn food, everywhere.

Sprinkle it on some whipped cream cheese, like so. And just stir it all up.
