Happy St. Patrick’s Day! You can’t have St. Patrick’s Day without eating something green and we know how easy that can be with little kids. One way to encourage healthy eating is to play with food, making up recipes, and taste-test! So we made these super easy green popsicles that are all natural, no food coloring and we even had fun playing test kitchen trying a few times to make the color green. Here are our attempts to make green food for St. Patrick’s Day!
Green Food For St. Patrick’s Day
Ingredients: We opened the fridge and looked for blue and yellow ingredients. We settled on blueberries and lemonade. You and I both know that it won’t blend to green but as long as the waste isn’t too much let your kids experiment. As soon as my son poured in the lemonade he could see that this was not the mix we needed. It was super tasty though and I blended it and drank it!
Ingredients: We went back to the fridge and grabbed the spinach. I suggested the yogurt (vanilla or lemon would make it yummier) and we tried again.
Taste test – he loved it! It tasted like watery lemon to me, if you are going for taste – add a ripe banana and like mentioned above use vanilla or lemon yogurt. These green treats we made a few years ago were great.
The point of this activity was the process of trial and error, color mixing and having fun with healthy food!

This looks yummy – I’m salivating. Although, I’m not sure how my kids will like it. They don’t even like Green Drink from Odwalla which I think is delicious. (Tons of sugar, what’s not to love?)
