St. Patrick’s Day Stuffed Eggs
Happy Friday Everyone!
And Happy Birthday to me
Today is your lucky day because I’ve got an awesome recipe to share…But, first a little story.
Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and even though I’m not secretly Irish this day is very special to me. Mainly because it’s the day before my birthday. I also like it because it was the only time of year that you can buy a shamrock milkshake at Mc Donald’s When I was a little girl, my mom would buy me this green milkshake every year as a special treat, it’s sort of our little tradition.
One of the coolest thing about being a Mama, is that you get to start your own traditions with your child. For Example: you can make a healthy snack with a green theme like this stuffed egg recipe that I found on Pinterest. As usual, I changed up a few ingredients to make it suit my own taste.
The result is a Healthy, Green, Pure Protein Power Snack…and did I mention it’s GREEN
- 5-6 Farm Fresh Eggs
- 1.5 cups of warm water
- 1/8 teaspoon of green food coloring
- 1/2 Ripe Avocado
- 1 teaspoon of Onion Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of Sea Salt
- 1 tablespoon of Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 Juice of Lime (dividend)
- Place 5-6 eggs in warm water, cover lid and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and boil for 10-12mins (I used a egg timer)
- Remove from stove and put eggs under cold running water, until eggs cooled down
- Peel eggs and place in a deep bowl
- Cut eggs, length wise in half and remove the yolks
- In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, avocado, onion powder, sea salt, yogurt and half of the lime juice
- Mash the mixture with a fork until smooth
- Put 1 cup of warm water in a deep bowl, add the other half of lime juice and 1/8 tsp of green food coloring
- Place egg whites in the bowl and let it sit for 5-10mins, remove and dry on paper towel
- Place egg yolk mixture into a cake piping bag and pipe directly into the wells of the eggs, filled to desire amount
- Garnish with a cilantro leaf.
- Place in air-tight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.

- The recipe calls for 1/4 minced onion ( I just used onion powder,because I was lazy)
