This weekend it's St. Patrick's Day so of course, we had to come up with a green recipe of some sorts! St. Patrick's Day is always a fun holiday because it's super festive, everyone makes a point of wearing green and having a great time. Green beer makes it's appearance for the night and regardless of what day it falls on, everyone goes out and makes the most of it.
This year, St. Patrick's Day happens to fall on a Saturday which makes it great for those who like to go out and celebrate! It also happens to be a Market day so we will be featuring Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Doughnuts to celebrate. These guys will be available for purchase BUT if you have the mix you can definitely make them yourself!! It's a super simple recipe and they taste amazing! Enjoy :)
