The latest Instagram trend is just so pretty and sweet that left us wondering how to make it.
My ideal aesthetic: super extra green ombré toast with gold leaf flakes atop an orange daisy filled background ? ? (simple/practical just isn't my thing) Also… 50,000 followers? Whaaaaaaattt is happening! I'm so humbled and appreciative that you all like what I'm putting out there enough to follow along. Thank you so very much ?? #vibrantandpure #mermaidtoast #unicorntoast
From the looks of it, it seems a bit difficult to make, but it’s surprisingly easy to put together. Did we mention it’s super healthy as well?
Super excited to announce that I will be on 'The Dr. Oz Show' (@dr_oz ) tomorrow (whatttt?!) explaining all things unicorn toast ??? Check your local listings and tune in if you'd like! // In other news: I decided to take already whimsical mermaid toast and add a few extra sprinkles of *whimsy* via these ?radish & mandarin stars bc I love (#simplicity)…..? (P.S. super cute vegetable & fruit shapes inspired by the magical @talinegabriel ) #droz #vibrantandpure #unicorntoast #mermaidtoast
Colorful foods are on the rise, like the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino, Rainbow Bagels and Galaxy Donuts. The Mermaid Toast falls right in line with the galaxy trend and rainbow colored foods, minus all the sugar.
The trendy food was created by Miami-based food stylist and photographer Adeline Waugh. She initially called it ”Watercolor Toast”, but her followers renamed it ”Mermaid Toast”, for its swirl of bright colors.
Mermaids need love too, ya know??? ? My mermaid toast recipe X 2 + bee pollen + avo stars ⭐️ to make things extraaaaa whimsical (and just plain extra.) (also, why did I just write out an equation to explain what these are?) K bye…my brain is fried, is today not Friday? Help ? ***UPDATE: Just a lil reminder for those who don't know: this does NOT contain food dye. It's made of almond milk cream cheese + spirulina… this time I added a little bit of butterfly pea tea #whydounicornsgetalltheattention #mermaidtoast #vibrantandpure
Made with vegan cream cheese, the mermaid color swirl is attained by mixing high pigmented powders and juices to small batches of cream cheese to mix it into the white cream cheese on toast canvas. Using a chopstick or a butter knife, she swirls the colors in a waving motion. To make it extra pretty, the food stylist tops it with gold leaf flakes or pastel sprinkles. It is a feast for the eyes.
Here's the finished product from my #mermaidtoast takeover on @thefeedfeed snap ? (it's over on their IG story now as well) p.s. for those asking: the shapes are made using tiny cookie cutters, I got mine on amazon… I would be using stars but *someone* (my lovely boyfriend) accidentally destroyed the star cutter in the garbage disposal ?… so flowers it is ?
In an interview with Vogue, Adeline said, ”Brightly colored toast named after a mythical creature is not a serious or important matter, but with everything going on in the world, if someone can feel happy to look at a pretty piece of toast, then why not?” she asked.
It makes perfect sense to us!
What You’ll Need
- Slices of your favorite bread
- Kite Hill Almond Cream Cheese (or any other brand of vegan cream cheese)
- Spirulina Powder (blue)
- Blueberry Powder (purple)
- Turmeric Powder (yellow and orange)
- Chlorophyll drops (green)
- Beet Juice (red and pink)
How To Make It
- Slather the cream cheese deliberately on a slice of toast.
- For every desired color, separately mix a few dollops of cream cheese and add the colored ingredient to the small batch, little by little, until you reach the color of choice.
- Add a dollop of the colored cream cheese to each corner of the toast.
- Using a butter knife or a chopstick, start lightly swirling the cream cheese toward the center of the toast, mixing it with the other colors, until you reach the design you want.
- Top it with sprinkles or whatever you think will make it prettier!
