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.

Green Power Mix

A spicy-sweet grouping with lots of crunch.

2 parts wasabi peas + 1 part cashews + 1 part white chocolate chips

"Irish I had more gold!" Mix

A classic snack mix—nuts, chocolate, dried fruit, and pretzels.

1 part green chocolate candies (such as M&M's) + 3 parts pretzels + 1 part no-sugar-added banana chips + 1 part unsalted almonds, 1 part bittersweet chocolate chips

Pot o' Gold Mix

Sweet and crunchy favorites—exactly what the leprechaun wants at the end of the rainbow.

1 part apple chips + 1 part coconut chips + 1 part banana chips + 1/2 part pretzels + 1/2 part unsalted roasted almonds + 1/2 part cashews + 1/2 part white chocolate chips
