Naturally Green Recipes for St. Patrick's Day

Want some alternatives to green beer or cupcakes and cookies frosted emerald-green to get into the spirit of St. Patricks Day? You can't get much greener than these yummy recipes.

Drinks Sip on refreshing drinks made with Kiwi, Cilantro, or Matcha to celebrate the Emerald Isle.

Snacks Simple and quick munchies like edamame, kale chips, and guacamole will give an energy boost to all-day revelers.

Easy Guacamole - It goes with everything, and it's belongs on every coffee table, just beside a bottle of cool, refreshing light beer and a bowl of crispy tortilla chips or carrots.

Soup and a Salad (or a Salad and Soup) Chill out with a light lunch of fresh pea gazpacho and a green goddess dressed iceberg lettuce wedge -- or make it a heartier dinner with the salad and a meatball soup with greens.

Dessert, anyone? Enjoy a spicy-cold popsicle or Matcha Pound Cake.
