The unicorn thing.  Those too-neon-to-be-true (hence the "unicorn" reference) blues, fuschia pinks and super-purples that seem to be everywhere now in drinks and things - it's been a craze!  Are most food dyes that create such colors really consumable?  I'm not taking chances.  This recipe may not quite create those neon blues, but the "magic" in this Magical Unicorn N-Ice Cream is something truly special that creates glorious purply-pinks and is no threat at all:  fruit.  Specifically, cherries for the fuschia-pink and blueberries for the super-purple.

Just using fruit means that making this Unicorn N-Ice Cream is really easy and straightforward.  You can even use your food processor!  Simply mix partially-thawed frozen bananas and cherries in one batch, bananas and blueberries in another, and then mix the two.  That's it!

Or place it in a freezer-safe container, stick it in the freezer, and enjoy scoops.  Actually, it's so yummy, I think you should have a little soft-serve before putting it in the freezer.

This "nice cream" is so cute for a Magical Unicorn party!  You can even add a "horn" by rolling a piece of banana in rainbow sprinkles.  Don't worry, these sprinkles are colored with vegetables.  Really!
