It’s a brand new year, which means the quietly cool foods of last year are about to become Instagram superstars. Some sound and look pretty ridiculous, but annoyingly enough, we have to admit they are quite delicious too. So what will be the avocado roses and rainbow bagels of 2017? Let’s find out!
It seems that the rainbow food trend isn’t going anywhere in 2017. This year, it’ll be moving away from rainbow bagels to lattes — unicorn lattes. Brooklyn-based café The End is responsible for this concoction. It is made from ginger, lemon, coconut milk, honey and, of course, E3Live blue-green algae to give it that beautiful blue color. The drink is topped with turmeric and pomegranate powder for color, along with edible flowers and vegan rainbow sprinkles. No espresso is actually involved in this drink.
You haven’t had a croissant until it has been stuffed with funfetti cream. Croissants are great on their own but they are even better when they are multi-colored and Instagram-worthy.
Made with turmeric, coconut oil, ginger, black pepper, cinnamon, honey, and unsweetened plant-based milk, these drinks are super healthy too. Along with the unicorn latte, these are part of the broader anti-inflammatory foods trend expected in 2017. Plus, so pretty and golden!
Wouldn’t be a new year without a new beer trend! By using just the right kind of yeast and bacteria (which vary by location, making this perfect for the craft community), these beers are made to be heavy and tart — as it always is with beer, it’ll be an acquired taste.
