Unicorn Noodles Are An All-Natural Food Trend You Might Actually Get Behind

Sharing is caring!

First, there was the unicorn latte. Then there was the unicorn frappuccino. There have been a whole host of crazy food trends relating to unicorns, and there will be a whole host after these, and theyll probably make you roll your eyes.

But we want to take a moment to pause at the beauty of our favorite multi-colored unicorn food to be created to date: unicorn noodles.

Behold, unicorn noodles.

Theyre as close as food gets to a work of art.

Unicorn noodles are basically just noodles theyre made using clear or white noodles that have been naturally dyed. To dye the noodles blue, purple cabbage is boiled in a large pot of water to release the color. Noodles are left to soak in the colored water for 5-10 minutes. How much water-to-cabbage you use will affect the darkness of the blue, as will how long you leave the noodles to soak.

The noodles are then turned shades of pink and purple with a simple squeeze of a lemon. In fact, turning them these shades is one of the best parts of making unicorn noodles. You squeeze the juice and watch them change colors right in front of your eyes.

It looks like magic, but it’s really science at work. When you add acid to the purple noodles, the pigment from the purple cabbage –called anthocyanin — reacts by changing color.
