March is the month of St. Patrick’s Day! It’s that time of year when everything goes green in honor of Ireland’s patron saint. What was once simply a religious feast day back in the 17th century has somehow evolved into a grand celebration of Irish culture with lots of parades and festivals across the world. And what’s a holiday without food? Or better yet dessert? Here’s a roundup of delicious naturally green St. Patrick’s day desserts if you’re looking to celebrate the holiday with something sweet minus the artificial stuff. No food dyes or green food coloring here. Just delicious, sweet and more importantly green!

5.  Almond Flour Sugar Cookies

These darling little cutout sugar cookies made with almond flour as their base would make great St. Patty’s day treats. For a beautiful and modern take on St. Patrick’s day simply use a round cookie cutter like the cookies shown. Use a shamrock shaped cookie cutter for a fun and festive twist. These cookies are topped with white chocolate and tinted with matcha green tea powder, but you could also leave the white chocolate white and dust with some natural green sprinkles like these from India Tree. India Tree makes all natural food dyes and decorating sugars in fun colors using only vegetable and herbal color sources. You could also add a nutty flavor with a sprinkle of pistachios or pumpkin seeds.

6.  Healthy Shamrock Shake

McDonald’s famous Shamrock Shake is now synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day. Every year for a limited time their green, minty and vanilla ice-cream based shakes are sold by the millions. But even a small Shamrock Shake is close to a whopping 500 calories. I firmly believe indulging now and then is part of healthy lifestyle, but aside from its green color not being natural, there’s some other not so great ingredients like corn syrup and preservatives like sodium benzoate. So why not make your own healthier version at home? This healthy homemade Shamrock Shake is made with good for you ingredients like Greek yogurt, avocado, spinach and fresh mint leaves.
