23 Healthy Green Dessert Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day
It hit me that I am coming up on my SIXTH year of blogging this April (how and why can time fly by so quickly?!?). So today I’m going through the archives and sharing a bunch of green recipes I’ve posted over the years, to bring you this ahhhmazing list of 23 HEALTHY green dessert recipes!
Why green? Well, I don’t know if I’m totally alone on this one, but I associate every month with a different color:
Orange for October
Baby blue for December
Pink for February
Green for March
Does anyone else do this? Or am I totally insane and alone on that one? Aaaaanywayssss… I’m just gonna OWN IT and “celebrate” this weirdness by providing y’all with this green dessert roundup!
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and March (aka #GreenDessertMonth) with me and eat some naturally green sweets! Let’s get started.
1. Healthy Key Lime Cheesecake
Okay, this isn’t technically green, but it has green key lime zest + juice in it! If you like Key Lime Pie and if you’re obsessed with cheesecake, then you’ll LOVE this Key Lime Cheesecake. It tastes so sinful, you’d never know it’s low calorie, sugar free, high protein, and gluten free. This is to DIE FOR.
2. Healthy Matcha Green Tea Fudge DIY Protein Bars
This is hands down THE most popular recipe in my DIY Protein Bars Cookbook! It’s so soft and fudgy, the color is spot on, and it’s topped off with a chocolate drizzle (dark chocolate and white chocolate are both amazing). You’d never know it’s gluten free and vegan too, shhhh!
3. Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
This Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is truly a sweet, guilt-free treat. It’s minty fresh, creamy, and 100% delicious. Is this real life? Oh yes, yes it is!

5. Healthy Homemade Pistachio Butter
6. Healthy Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
7. Healthy Matcha Green Tea Shortbread Cookie Dough
If you’re a cookie dough-lover, HIGH FIVE! Cookie dough is seriously the best. Too bad there are always warning labels on packages telling us to NOT eat the dough raw. That’s why I made this recipe — it’s safe to eat raw!
8. Healthy Matcha Green Tea Sugar Cookies
No words are even necessary to describe how amazing (and MIND-BLOWING) these soft and chewy Matcha Green Tea Sugar Cookies are!

If you can handle the liquor shots, you can handle these Veggie Shots! Get your daily servings in shots style 😉

These Matcha Green Tea Blondies are so sweet, dense, and delicious, everyone falls in love at first bite. It’s also great with white chocolate chips added to the batter!
12. Healthy Mint Chocolate DIY Protein Bars
Here is another popular recipe in my DIY Protein Bars Cookbook. The mint protein bar base is incredibly soft and fudgy, and it’s topped off with a thick layer of dark chocolate. This delicious minty goodness is also gluten free and vegan, but you’d never know it!
13. Healthy Matcha Green Tea Nice Cream
Serve guests a big bowl of this Matcha Nice Cream and they’ll be as happy as can be. This sophisticated, tea-infused dessert requires just 4 ingredients, and it’s perfect topped with freshly sliced bananas, cacao nibs, or mini chocolate chips!

This fudge is sweet and fluffy and PACKED with matcha flavor. So much goodness in a small package! It’s hard to believe this is sugar free, low carb, and high protein.
