Aqui Es Santa Fe’s Color Wave Empanadas

32 Broad St, Port Chester; 914.305.1060

We always love a tasty empanada, but these bite-sized “color wave” iterations are as Instagrammable as they are delicious. Made with natural colorings like beet root extract, spinach concentrate, and cuttlefish/squid inks, these babies come in both traditional and inventive flavors like beef, chicken, cheese, cheese and guava, ham and pineapple, blueberry goat cheese, and more. $3.15 each (minimum order of 3) or $32 for a dozen.

Beascakes’ Rainbow Mini-Donuts

575 Main St, Armonk; 914.273.3612

These adorable mini-donuts (not donut holes; those are separate) come filled or dipped in colorful icing, and are eminently poppable, making them a perfect party purchase. If you want to just grab a bunch for yourself though, we’re not going to judge. (Grab a couple of rainbow-decorated sugar cookies while you’re at it.) $4.50 each or $9 for a dozen.

Bona Bona’s Over the Rainbow Milkshake

10 Westchester Ave, Port Chester; 914.481.5712

Make like Dorothy and ditch Kansas. Port Chester is where it’s at, thanks to this monster milkshake from the ice cream connoisseurs at Bona Bona. Made by blending the house rainbow cookie ice cream, each one sports multiple rainbow cookies embedded in a buttercream rim, topped with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles. $9 per milkshake.
