Colorful food has become the trend this year. We have already written how to make multi-colored spaghetti using only natural dyes, and now we will tell you how to make a multi-colored toast for fans of unicorns and other magic. This recipe is also useful for those who decided to surprise guests or their household members, those who decided to arrange a photo session with exotic dishes, as well as those whose children often refuse to eat.
What's really magical about the multi-colored toast is its organic composition. So, once experimenting with cream cheese in the kitchen, Adeline Waugh created her wonderful sandwich and shared a photo on Instagram. And although the creator herself called it "watercolor", her subscribers quickly made an association with the rainbow mane of a unicorn. And they called these toasts "Unicorn Toast", which can be translated as "Unicorn Toast."
So how to fly away on the magic wings of the popularity of this toast? It's simple - you need to create a multi-colored cream cheese. You can try it yourself or follow the recipe, there is no clear guide here. The recipe implies freedom, so if you want the cheese to be a little sweeter, just swap it for thick yogurt or add a few grams of sugar. In addition, the shade can be changed by increasing or decreasing the amount of pigment.
Raspberry (Beet juice)
Start with one teaspoon of beetroot juice and gradually increase the amount until you reach the desired shade.
Orange / Yellow (Turmeric Root)
You need juice or powdered turmeric - just one pinch. Slowly add a few drops to the cream cheese until you reach the desired yellow / orange shade.
Light green (chlorophyll drops)
Start with 3 drops of chlorophyll (sometimes sold in pharmacies as a dietary supplement) and increase the dose until the cheese turns a light green hue.
Light Blue (Spirulina Powder)
You will need very little powder to achieve the color - a quarter teaspoon.
Lilac (dry-frozen blueberry powder)
Take a tablespoon of dried blueberries or raspberries and grind into a powder, first placing them in a zip-top bag. Gradually add the powder to the cream cheese until you achieve the desired purple / lilac shade.
Light pink (beet juice and blueberry / raspberry powder)
Take a tablespoon of dried blueberries or raspberries and grind into a powder, first placing them in a ziplock bag. Add to cream cheese along with a few drops of beetroot juice for a truly marshmallow pink color.
A step-by-step photo recipe for creating multi-colored toasts:
It is better to start with a layer of regular cheese, since later, when the shades are added, they are mixed with the white color, creating additional colors.
Add colored cream cheese each serving.
This is where it gets interesting. Without any special technique or guidance, just start mixing colors. You can do this with a wooden stick, knife, or even your finger.
If you are not satisfied with the picture, add some color where you see fit. (here, according to the author of the recipe, there was not enough blue / green)
And now the toast is already changing …
Add some more natural powder …
Simplifying the recipe
If you do not want to play with the shades of cheese in the kitchen every morning, because it still takes time, which we often do not have, you can simply "lay" the colored cheese in layers.
And then stir a little.
