This no-fuss, super green and festive snack board is a fun way to fill up with all the good stuff on St. Patrick’s Day.  This snack board proves green food can be enjoyable!  It is both adult and kid-friendly.  Below I provide exactly how I made the board plus alternate green food ideas.  

If you follow me on Instagram then you know I love to play around and get creative with food as art.  Last Halloween I made the kids this spooky dinner before we went trick or treating.  In this St. Patrick’s Day snack board I have a leprechaun hat, two shamrocks and a rainbow with a pot of gold.  Can you spot them all?  

Similar to the concept of my Chocolate Dessert Board, don’t overthink it.  Just gather your favorite green ingredients and fill up the board.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.  Green grapes were my major filler where I had gaps.  I started with the green bell pepper shamrock and leprechaun hats made from cucumber, yellow bell pepper and vegan cheese.  I used heart vegetable cutters to make the open-faced green hummus shamrock sandwich.  The rainbow with the pot of gold can be made from almost any fruits or vegetables.  I used an avocado half for the pot and filled it with yellow dye-free vegan, dark chocolate candy gems for the gold.  

This St. Patrick’s Day snack board is vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free, egg-free and dairy-free.  I hope you love it as much as I do. It is so easy and fun.  If you give it a try, please let me know!
