Magical unicorn toast is the breakfast trend taking over Instagram

We’ve already been blessed with rainbow bagels, rainbow cheese toasties, rainbow doughnuts and even, rainbow sushi. But now, we have a new contender – and it’s by far our favourite. Chuck out the granola, we’re never buying cereal again.

Behold, #toasttherainbow unicorn toast, the latest food trend to brighten up our mundane breakfast routine. 

26-year-old food photographer and stylist, Adeline Waugh, created the magical toast on her Instagram account @vibrantandpure. Mixing cream cheese with a selection of natural pigments, Adeline slathers the magical topping onto slices of bread and adds a range of colourful fruits and vegetables. 

 

 

"I’ve been trying to incorporate red beets into as many creations as possible, ever since I realized that they can turn just about anything into the most ridiculously beautiful shade of hot pink,” Adeline tells Teen Vogue.

“I was using beet cream cheese to make colorful pink toast, and then it occurred to me that I could probably make additional colors of cream cheese using natural ingredients. From there, I created five different colors and just experimented putting them on toast different ways. I had the colors separated on the toast and then some of the colors ran together, and I thought, 'wow that actually looks pretty cool!' So, I took a chopstick and mixed all of the colors together."

Proving that you don’t need artificial pigments to make beautifully coloured food, the Miami-based photographer only uses natural ingredients to colour her cream cheese.

“I don’t mess around with toxic chemicals in my food, so food coloring was never an option," she says.

“I use beet juice for the hot pink, freeze dried strawberry powder for the light pink, turmeric root juice for the orange/yellow, drops of chlorophyll for the light green, spirulina powder for the light blue, and freeze dried blueberry powder for the purple." 

Be right back, we’re off to stock up on bread (and Philadelphia)…
