Green eggs and ham may get all the attention, but green deviled eggs may deserve it far more.

The following green deviled eggs recipe is one of the many ways you can bring more St. Patty's Day cheer into your life, and avocado is here to help.

The result is a green snack that will improve your St. Patty's day spirit whilst filling you up with green nutrition. Enjoy!

Slice the hard-boiled eggs in half, lengthwise, and pop out their center yolks. Add about 3-4 of the egg yolks to a bowl. Use the others for other purposes.
Add the avocado flesh to the bowl with the egg yolks along with the garlic, salt, pepper, lime juice and cilantro. Use a food processor or the edge of a fork to mix and mash all the ingredients together so they are evenly combined. Scoop the mixture evenly among the egg yolk halves and garnish with fresh cilantro and prosciutto. Serve and enjoy!
