Instructions 

For the Shamrock Sandwiches:

  • In a food processor, combine whipped cream cheese, fresh baby spinach, lime juice, and salt. Pulse until creamy. Use a large (about 4inch) shamrock cookie cutter to cut the spinach tortillas, and spread with the green cream cheese. Top with second shamrock cutout to form a sandwich. Save the leftover tortilla scraps for the next step!

For Easy Guacamole and Crispy Tortilla Chips:

For the Rest of the Lunchbox:

  • Combine the broccoli, cucumber, green bell peppers, and celery in a compartment of the lunchbox to form the ombre green veggie salad.
  • Place the kiwi melon balls, grapes and edamame in other compartments.
