16 Delicious Naturally Green Recipes for St Patrick’s Day

From green smoothies to green doughnuts to green cakes, this is a list of 16 Delicious Naturally Green Recipes for St Patrick’s Day that I hope you and your family can enjoy!

16 Delicious Naturally Green Recipes for St Patrick’s Day

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.

16 Delicious Naturally Green Recipes for St Patrick’s Day

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!
