There’s no better time to go green than St. Paddy’s Day. After all, you don’t have to be Irish to enjoy green beer, green donuts – even green, err, bacon?
But you don’t have to have food dye on hand to enjoy a hearty green snack this weekend. Here are three naturally green recipes, perfect for the Irish and everyone else.
1. Oakhurst Dairy Shamrock Milk Mixer
Forget the fast food milkshakes – this chocolate, pistachio, and mint milk mixer tastes just as delicious and needs only 3 ingredients to throw together. Perfect for a party or special afterschool snack.
A kiddo fan favorite – this green mac and cheese boasts both festive coloring AND good nutrition. You’ll need some Oakhurst milk, broccoli florets, and green peas to pull it off. Get the recipe here: http://weelicious.com/2013/03/06/green-mac-and-cheese/
Avocados are what give this dip it’s delicious creaminess as well as a perfect St. Paddy’s day hue. Pair with cut veggies for a healthy and hearty party app. Get the recipe here: http://dailyburn.com/life/recipes/healthy-green-goddess-dressing-dip-recipe/
