St. Patrick's Day can get a bit rowdy around town for adults, but you don't need a green pitcher of beer to have a good time. This Saturday, stop by one of these local eateries to let your kids in on the fun with a non-alcoholic sweet treat. These green drinks are sure to put a smile on their face. 

TeaJava Café

The latest coffee shop and casual eatery to open up shop is rolling out the green carpet for St. Patrick’s Day. All this week, they are serving up their green drinks for $3, including their Shamrock Oreo Mint Shake. This creamy concoction will keep your kids happy until the last drop. Plus, the café’s beautiful interiors and décor will make you want to stay a bit longer and try out one of their drinks for yourself.


For a healthy option your kids will still get excited about, try out Nekter Juice Bar’s Tropical Greens. It tastes just like a juice, but it has the texture of their delicious smoothies. By combining spinach, kale, cucumber, frozen mango and frozen pineapple with ice, they create a green wonder that will give you an entire day’s serving of fiber-rich fruits and veggies. Sounds like a great excuse to treat your family to a healthy snack while also celebrating the holiday. 

Chicago Signature

This quick-service eatery has tons of comfort food classics like hot dogs, subs and Philly cheesesteaks. But, it’s hidden gem on the menu is a bit on the sweeter side. Their signature Avocado Shake, made with organic avocados and topped with whipped cream and cashews, is one of Muhannad "Mike" Khateeb's family recipes.  Its smooth blend of flavors and creamy finish is definitely a one-of-a-kind find. And with elegant touches like organic honey all the way from Jerusalem on top,  it’s definitely worth the drive out to Colleyville.


For a minty green treat, head over to MOOYAH to sip on their Mint Chocolate Chip milk shake. It gives their traditional flavors a run for their money with its fresh finish and bits of chocolate mixed in. Plus, it really matches the color scheme of St. Patrick’s Day. The Mint Chocolate Chip Shake is a great addition to their hearty burgers and fries, or it’s a perfect excuse to get out of the house for a midday treat. Whether you make a meal out of it or stop in for dessert, you can’t go wrong with MOOYAH.  

Pure Café

Get your green on at Pure Café. While they have plenty of green juices and smoothies, treat your kids to something new by trying out their Matcha Green Tea. This green drink has a simple ingredient list – Match Green Tea, almond milk and yogurt, which gives the drink a strong yet simple flavor profile. Plus, it’s a healthier alternative to other green treats. Pure Café also has plenty of lunch options like wraps and salads that can round out an entire green-friendly meal.
