Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! St Patrick’s Day is fast approaching, and what better way to celebrate than with some delicious cruelty-free treats?

Here’s a roundup of some of our favourite St Patrick’s Day recipes that will make your friends green with envy.

Pot o’ Gold Rainbow Shake

3 large scoops dairy-free ice cream (we love So Good Coconut Vanilla ice cream)
1 cup plant-based milk
Handful fresh mint
Few drops peppermint extract, to taste
Few drops green food colouring (optional)
1/4 cup Mango-flavoured popping boba (pick some up from the nearest frozen yoghurt place)
Dairy-free whipped cream (we like Soyatoo Spray Whipped Cream, or try making your own with coconut cream)
Rainbow sprinkles
Woolworth’s Sour Rainbow Straps

  • Place the ice cream, plant-based milk, mint, peppermint extract or oil and food colouring (if using) in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Put the popping boba in the bottom of a tall glass. (This is your “pot o’ gold”.)
  • Pour the shake over the boba, filling the glass.
  • Top with vegan whipped cream and garnish with sprinkles and a piece of rainbow strap folded into a half circle. (This is your “rainbow”.)
  • Add a straw and enjoy!


St Patrick’s Day Hangover-Busting Green Smoothie

1–2 cups coconut water
1 handful spinach
1 apple or pear
2 bananas, sliced and frozen
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Cinnamon, to garnish (optional)

  • Add the coconut water, spinach and apple or pear to a blender. Blend until almost smooth.
  • Add the bananas and lemon juice and blend again until completely smooth.
  • Pour into a glass and top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

For a creamier smoothie, you can substitute coconut water for soy milk or another plant-based milk of your choice. Get our recommendations here.
