Green eggs naturally

Sometimes it is fun to shake up your meals especially on holidays and special days! Colored food can be so fun – like green eggs. However, I don’t like food dyes and don’t cook with them. This recipe turns eggs green naturally. It is perfect for St. Patrick’s day and the birthday of “Green Eggs and Ham” creator, Dr. Seuss! Not only is it healthy, it is easy! My son made them for breakfast today! 

Green Eggs

  • Eggs
  • Greens (spinach or kale are our favorites)
  • Milk or coconut milk

Optional add-ins

  • Cheese
  • Ketchup
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Hot sauce

*Please use organic ingredients when possible.

Blend ingredients in a blender. 

Cook on medium-low stirring frequently. 

My children love them with a little cheese and of course ketchup (in true Pittsburgh fashion)! 

Enjoy and share with those who need a little naturally green eggs in their lives.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” -Dr. Seuss

    That is good to know. I do use food coloring, but this is great to keep in mind if I run out 🙂

    I never thought about making green eggs–but I bet the nutritional value of these is high considering you are also using spinach or kale. What a wonderful idea for St Patrick’s Day.

    This such a healthy and fun option for kids. I definitely need to try it for my son. Getting him to eat green vegetables is such a struggle sometimes, and adding them to eggs is SO smart!
