If you find yourself searching Pinterest for St. Patrick's Day snack mixes, you're going to come up rather empty handed. A search returns some ideas that, though cute, don't even near the healthy hemisphere. That's why we decided to create these fun and festive snack mixes just in time for everyone to don some green, avoid the pinches, and say cheers with healthy green drinks and snacks.

Combine these mixes in any amount you need. Recipes are in parts, not specific measurements (e.g. cups, tablespoons, etc). Make as much or as little as you need for the crowd you're serving.
