DIY Unicorn Latte
This psychedelic looking drink is wonderful before a deep yoga session, meditation or any creative practice. Entirely plant-based and vegan, this colorful yet functional tonic helps you tap into your most mystical, vibrant self.
We love coffee but offering warm energizing tonics such as these help broaden your spectrum and offer alternative ways to experience true, natural energy while also balancing your body and mind. The psychedelic color reflects the potency of this trippy blend. Comforting yet entirely unique and loaded with restorative ingredients, the unicorn latte helps you fly high while activating your intuition and third eye, aka unicorn horn.
