What You Will Need

  • Wooden skewers
  • Mason jar quart sized
  • 3 cups Ice cream strawberry and vanilla flavors work better with the food coloring
  • Milk
  • Whipped cream
  • Neon food coloring or any other food coloring of choice
  • Star sprinkles
  • Colored mini-marshmallows
  • Jumbo marshmallows
  • Chewy fruit candies


Make the Unicorn Horns and Ears

  • Unwrap the candies and put them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to get them soft. Be sure to put them on a plate first as they will stick!
  • Start pulling them into long skinny strands with your hands. Use caution as they may be hot.
  • Twist the strands together into a cone like shape.
  • Add your unicorn horn to the wood skewer and it is ready for your unicorn drink!
  • Now we need some unicorn ears! I used large marshmallows, pink sprinkles, and wood skewers.
  • Cut the marshmallows in half then shape with your hands into an ear shape. Add to a wood skewer. The cut edge will be really sticky.
  • Dip that cut edge into sprinkles and you have a cute unicorn ear

Make the Unicorn Milkshake

  • Once you have two ears and a horn, you are ready to make your unicorn milkshake!
  • Start by mixing up the milkshake in a separate container. I mixed up two batches but you can do it all at once. Just mix 3 cups of ice cream with enough milk to make it the consistency that you like. I used strawberry for half of mine and vanilla for the other half.
  • Fill the jar about half way with milk shake. The colors start to blend and mix....magic!
  • Add a few more drips of food coloring and fill the jar up to the threads with your milkshake. The magic of the colors will continue to swirl inside of your jar.
  • Top off your unicorn drink with a handful of colorful marshmallows.
  • Add a crown of whipped cream and add on star sprinkles just because!
  • Then cut off your skewers to length and add your horn and ears to the top.
  • This unicorn drink is ready to serve to anyone that you love!


  • Share your magic. This milkshake is intended to be shared among two or more people.
  • Who needs portions? The recipe for this portion does not matter. The magic is in the food coloring!
  • Kid-friendly fun! If you are serving this to your kids, now is the time to invite them into the kitchen. They will want to watch the magic happen!
  • Add all the colors. Drip some food coloring down the side of your jar as shown below. Add any colors that you like!
