Real Green, Real Healthy Recipes for St. Patrick's Day
Posted by Katya Slater-Szirom
This St. Patrick’s Day, leave the green food coloring in the pantry and try one of these healthy — yet tasty — dishes! The best part? These recipes all use naturally green foods to add some color to your St. Patrick’s Day snacks, impressing even the most health conscious friends and family. Although, we did add a “cheat” treat at the end of the list.
It’s never too early to start your day with a drink and meal, all in one. This spicy BLT green Bloody Mary uses green tomatoes to make the festive green juice base. Add in some horseradish and fresh jalapeño for a kick in the mouth!
After drinking your breakfast, try some of these matcha green tea coconut pancakes. They are made using coconut flower, matcha powder, buttermilk and egg whites. The green tea gives a subtle, natural green tint.
If you’re looking for a tasty side to use with tacos or salad, try this cilantro lime rice. It’s made with long grain rice and gets its green coloring from fresh cilantro! A squeeze of fresh lime juice adds a nice bite to this simple dish.
Fresh cucumbers stuffed with a zesty, creamy crab filling? Yes, please! These crisp and refreshing cucumber cups with spicy crab make a great snack for any party. Light and healthy, they give you the satisfaction of snacking without the icky feeling of eating too much.
For those of you looking to splurge a bit, try these lucky leprechaun treats. They take Rice Krispies Treats to a whole new level. Lucky Charms cereal meets marshmallowy goodness in this irresistible recipe.
