25 St. Patrick’s Day Green Tea Recipes

St. Patrick’s Day is riiight around the corner, friends. What are your plans? I remember in college, the bars were always packed with rowdy college students wearing green and sporting shamrocks drawn somewhere on their body. I don’t think that’s a look I’ll be going for this year, but more power to you if you’re up for bar crawling.

Let’s celebrate the occasion with all things green and healthy. Typically, I associate St. Patrick’s Day with food and drinks like Bailey’s, Guinness, and Lucky Charms. But if you haven’t noticed already, I am obsessed with green tea matcha. It’s been going into my cupcakes, pancakes, and smoothies. So instead of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with the typical play-on-Irish-cream kind of fare, I want to rock it out with some green tea recipes.

Here’s 25 recipes from some amazing food bloggers and a few from this blog. My mouth is watering just looking at these dishes. What do you think?

    Yay, thanks for including me on this super yum list! I'm very much inspired now to put my matcha through the paces - I often forget it's in the pantry but when I use it it totally transforms my dishes into something with real character and depth. :D

    So many fantastic ideas! I have some cookies coming up later this week that are green from the addition of Matcha, too - such a great natural way to be green for St. Paddy's. Now, off to check out some of these delicious recipes....

    These green tea concoctions sound 1000% better for St Patrick's Day than the typical skunky green beer! (We may have unthinkingly come up to SF for brunch one St. Patrick's Day...that was not the best plan. People were prepartying with green shots on the Caltrain at 9 am. D:) I don't typically cook with matcha -- I just drink plenty of tea -- but now I'm thinking I need to branch out!

      Caltrain is pre-party/pre-game central! I took the Caltrain to the Giants game once, and there were so many people with beers open and ready to go! You should definitely give matcha a try!

    What a beautiful and inspiring Round-Up! I'm honored to be included with my Matcha Chocolate recipe ^.^ Seeing these wonderful Green Tea Treats I'm absolutely motivated to try some of them, they all look so good. Awesome collection, Lisa :)
