St. Patrick’s Day can be a fun holiday to celebrate with your children if you do it right.

And one way to ensure that you’re celebrating the luckiest of the holidays correctly is by turning everything you can the color green.

So in this article, Dearly will share five easy ways to make green, kid-friendly drinks for every meal.


Leprechaun Milk:

It’s as easy as it sounds; grab a glass, your child’s favorite kind of milk (I prefer of the nut variety), and green food coloring …


And mix.


I’ll be honest this was everyone’s least favorite, but that’s only because all of the other drink options were just so good.

Four Leaf Clover OJ:

Grab your green pancake, waffles, and eggs, along with a glass of orange juice and some more food coloring …


Mix and enjoy!

The Luck of the Lemonade:

You know what will go perfectly with your child’s lunch on March 17? Green lemonade.


Grab two packets of Lemonade flavored kool-aid, some water, ice, sugar, and more green food coloring.

Add as much sugar and food coloring to the kool-aid water as you wish and mix!


This was a fan favorite!


This one is for those of you who would prefer not to use green food coloring.

Just grab a Glacier Freeze and a Lemon-Lime Gatorade and mix them together!


You could easily just grab a Green Apple Gatorade and serve that, but that’s just not much fun!

Shamrock Shake:

This is the best one yet, even the kids agreed. And after drinking it, you’ll feel like you’ve just found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.


Grab a blender, your favorite kind of mint chocolate chip and vanilla ice cream, some type of milk, and you guessed it, more green food coloring.

Put two scoops of each ice cream into a blender, a few pours of milk, a couple drops of food coloring, and mix!


All of these beverages go perfectly with fun, love, and a whole lot of luck!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
