St. Patrick’s Day Recipes: 9 Green, Guilt-Free Ideas

Is it possible to have a healthy St. Patrick’s Day? Skipping the beer is one way to go, but that’s no fun. So we put the question to Gina Homolka of Skinnytaste—the nine scrumptious recipes below are her answer. Festive and easy to whip up, these goodies let you celebrate the day with minty “shamrock shakes” made with avocados, and cupcakes (yes, cupcakes!) that call for applesauce (and okay, a little chocolate stout).

The best part? This “green cuisine” works for any occasion. And that’s no blarney!
