If you’re gonna go green… make luck of the Irish spinach waffles

You won’t taste the green in these spinach waffles.

There’s only one right way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day… and that is to go green! We wanted to get a glimpse into our foodie friend’s traditions. Lisa Danielson is clocking in to our week-long series.

If Lisa is gonna go green, it’s got to be with waffles. But you can’t just serve up Krusteaz on St. Patty’s Day. Lisa calls these waffles, “Luck of the Irish.” A surprising ingredient turns them naturally green: spinach!

Lisa promises that you won’t even know there’s spinach in them. Blend all the ingredients in a high-powered blender to make sure all the spinach is blended up. It’s a healthier alternative to waffles, and an easy way to get your greens in!
