Green (REAL Green) Food For St. Patty’s Day

st patricks day recipes

With so many delicious real green food options for your St. Patrick’s Day meal, why not skip the food coloring this year?  There’s just no need for green velvet cupcakes or Shamrock shakes when you can put together a naturally green feast that will please everyone’s taste buds.  Here are just a few of the mouth-watering St. Patrick’s day food ideas I found on Pinterest:

Potato & Brussels Sprout Pizza

Creamy Lime Squares (leave out the food coloring and add more lime zest!)

Fruity Shamrock Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but my temptation to use green food coloring just went way down.  Still considering it?  Here are some reasons that may dissuade you.  Of course, once in awhile this stuff won’t hurt you, but if you can avoid it, may as well.

    Love this post and could not agree more – So much beautiful green in nature; why do you need artificial food colorings?
