St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and it's a holiday that is all about shamrocks, rainbows, leprechauns and fun! Since it's a fun holiday to celebrate with your kiddos, start the day off by setting a leprechaun trap and then plan shamrock green snacks and meals for the rest of the day. Your little lucky charms will look forward to devouring these yummy organic green themed meals, read on to learn my 5 favorites for a very happy St. Patrick's Day!
1. Organic Whole Wheat Shamrock Pizzas
You can make easy shamrock pizzas using organic whole-wheat English muffins and a yummy organic pizza sauce. Then, top with organic cheese and green peppers. This is perfect for your child’s St. Patrick’s Day lunchbox or an afternoon snack attack.
2. Organic Green Cucumbers Sandwiches
Invite a few friends over St. Patrick’s Day weekend and serve easy organic green cucumber sandwiches. All you need is a yummy organic bread, organic cream cheese and cucumber slices and you have the perfect shamrock sandwiches!
3. Organic Green Machine Smoothies
For a fun and healthy St. Patrick’s Day breakfast, surprise your little Irish cuties with green smoothies. My favorite, the Peas-ful Mango Smoothie, includes mango, peas, yogurt and juice. Or try a shamrock smoothie made with spinach, spirulina, bananas, mango and more.
4. Organic Fruit Rainbow
Arrange fresh fruits such as organic honeydew, blueberries, cantaloupe, kiwi, strawberries and pineapple in a rainbow arch shape. Add a large dollop of organic homemade whipped cream or yogurt to represent the clouds at the end of the rainbow.
5. Organic Rainbow Green Salad
