Green Food for St. Patrick's Day

When else but on St. Patrick's Day is it acceptable to eat anything so shockingly green? Our round-up of the best green food from around the web will hopefully inspire you to use your own exorbitant amount of green food coloring this year.

1. Lucky Green Velvet Baby Cakes (above) from Picky Palate are an easy green dessert for St. Patrick's Day.


2. Pandan Pistachio White Chocolate Cookies from Pham Fatale are so very vibrantly green!



3. Mint Ice Cream from One Perfect Bite gets it's lovely pale green color from fresh mint leaves.



4. Your local McDonald's doesn't offer Shamrock Shakes? Make your own like The Homesteading Housewife does!



5. What would the French think about a green version of their traditional Madeleine cookie? These Macha Madeleines from Evan's Kitchen Ramblings get their green color naturally from macha, a green tea powder.



6. It doesn't get greener than this: Green Coriander Chutney found on No Recipes.



7. Even the rice is green in this cute Caterpillar Green Sushi Roll from The Little Foodie!



8. Amy Ormond's Green Tea Ice Cream Cups are so pretty, festive, and, of course, green!



9. Green Pea Soup with mint from Seasaltwithfood is the epitome of green freshness.



10. Macarons are oh-so trendy these days! And so are Shiny Cooking's Macarons Filled With Lime-colored Peppermint Buttercream.


11. Frozen Grasshopper Pie on a Stick Dipped in Chocolate (from BitterSweet) has a lovely green surprise in the middle.
