15 Delicious Green Breakfasts and Desserts for St Patrick’s Day

This post was first published on March 14th, 2020. It has been updated and is being republished today.

It has been one year since I published this post. And, one year since a new normal began for all of us. Today, while we are still social distancing and following CDC guidelines, there is hope on the horizon in the form of a vaccine.

And, while it might be a while before everyone gets it, at least now we can ponder on all the places we will travel to and restaurants we will try out ~ kind of like we ponder on what we would do if we won the lottery! 🙂



In an attempt to “flatten the curve” when it comes to this virus, large group gatherings were moved online. Everything from church services to concerts adapted to a virtual environment. Speaking of virtual concerts, if y’all love deep, soulful music, then y’all might want to check out the upcoming virtual concerts by Michael Malarky – a singer, songwriter, who became a household name when he played Enzo in The Vampire Diaries.

Last year, events, such as St. Patrick’s Day parades, however, were canceled altogether.

From Dublin to New York to Savannah, cities put a kibosh on previously planned St Patrick’s Day festivities and activities. And, not much has changed this St. Patrick’s Day.

With that said, if all this social distancing has thwarted your plans of heading out and grabbing a shamrock shake and a green cupcake while catching the parade, a few of my fellow bloggers and I have you covered! Well, at least the food and drink part but not the parade part in this list of 15 Delicious Green Breakfasts and Desserts for St Patrick’s Day.

15 Delicious Healthy-ISH Green Breakfasts and Desserts!

Breakfast and dessert are my two favorite meals of the day so I figured I would compile a list of tasty treats that you can start your day off with and end your day with. And most of these lean towards being healthy-ish.

St. Patricks’s Day Interesting tidbit:

On a side note – did you know that the original color of St. Patrick’s Day was blue and not green? According to this article, green replaced blue because of Ireland’s nickname “The Emerald Isle,” the green in the Irish flag, and the shamrock/clover!

On this list you will find delicious and energizing green smoothies, healthy shamrock shakes, savory kale egg bakes, refined sugar-free green smoothie pancakes, matcha banana lemon donuts, green bagels, green cupcakes, and heck – even a green cake!

15 Delicious Green Breakfasts and Desserts for St Patrick’s Day

From green smoothies to green doughnuts to green cakes, this is a list of green treats you and your family are sure to love dining-in on.

I’m hoping you and your loved ones get the chance to prepare one or more of the green treats on this list either on St Patty’s Day or this weekend.

The beauty of these treats is that you don’t have to save them for St Patrick’s Day only.

You can whip them up anytime you feel the need for a tasty boost of greens!

Until next time, I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and are covered by God’s protection and provision during these times.

Ah, what a great collection of festive recipes, Shashi! (And interesting tidbit about the original blue color...I had no idea!) This reminds me that I need to go put on a green shirt now...I can't risk getting pinched by Laura today! :-) Happy St. Patrick's Day, my friend!

The Fajita marinade sounds really good. The colorful final output is very catchy and I hope I’ll get the same taste when I try it myself. My family enjoys anything Mexican and I’m sure they will definitely love this too.
