St. Patty’s Day is right around the corner and it is a wonderful time to introduce green foods to your kids! They are all in the festive “green” mood and are much more willing to give it a try. So, here are a few recipes that have been a hit at our house.
St. Patties Day Shake
Take advantage of the festive mood and serve this for a fun “green” snack.
½ a fresh pineapple- chunked
1 c. organic apple juice
2 ripe bananas
1 huge handful of spinach leaves (2 if you would like)
Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend on high until smooth and leaves are not detectable. Enjoy!
Avocado Chicken Salad on “Green” Leafy Lettuce
1 crushed clove garlic 2 tsp. honey
2 T. cilantro 1 avocado
¾ c. rice milk 3 T. lime juice (if desired)
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar ¼ tsp. sea salt
Put all ingredients in a food processor and puree to smooth.
For chicken wraps:
1 head leafy green or romaine lettuce
1-2 lb. chicken breast
¼ purple onion- diced fine
Cook 1-2 lbs. chicken breast. Cut in bite size pieces. Toss in dressing. Add desired amount of diced purple onion (I do about ¼ of an onion).
Place desired amount of chicken salad on lettuce, roll, and eat. Serve with green apples for a totally green meal!
