Need a little green inspiration for St. Patrick’s Day? I’ve got some festive and mouthwatering dishes for a day full of St. Patty’s Day fun!
Start the day off right with these tasty and nutritious smoothies from The Best of This Life.
This Skinny Peppermint Patty Shake looks too decadent to be healthy! OMG….who’s thirsty??!
or this gorgeous Pear Green Smoothie??
For a mid-morning or afternoon snack, how about these kid-friendly Fresh Fruit Kabobs? These kabobs are fun to eat and make a pretty display, too. Let the kids help assemble them and enjoy some time in the kitchen with their favorite chef. 🙂
It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without Irish Soda bread. Lauren Kelly, CN has whipped up an amazing loaf of healthy Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread. I love her whole grain version of an Irish classic. This would be so delicious with a big smear of grassfed butter on top! I really want this for breakfast with my coffee….
If you are looking for a simple and flavorful side dish, look no further than this Sauteed Cabbage with Bacon (everything is better with bacon!) from Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen….
Family Fresh Meals has shared an easy Crockpot Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe for lunch or dinner. This meal is an annual St. Patrick’s Day tradition in our home.
Let your crockpot do all the work while you find better things to do…..like make these fun Angry Irishman Cupcakes.
I made these feisty guys a few years ago and they were a big hit. If you married an Irish man, you know what I mean. 😉
Another simple treat that you can make for a party or snack are these Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows. They are easy enough for kids to make and be sure to make extra, they disappear quickly! Erin Go Bragh!
