Red, White, and Blue 4th of July Desserts

June 30, 2017

 

The simpler, the better these days. I love making strawberry shortcake or a good strawberry pie, but many times, gatherings are last minute! These are really easy grab and go 4th of July dessert ideas to serve up or bring to a party.

 

Fresh fruit cones – Make cone shapes out of wax paper and slide them into butcher paper for a fun grab and go fruit appetizer. Blueberries, raspberries, cherries, or strawberries would work for this! You can stuff them in taller containers or lay out on trays.

 

American Flag platter – Layer red, white, and blue rows of fresh fruit and white chocolate covered pretzels on a platter for an American flag festive grab and go appetizer.

 


Popsicle floats
– Pour 1/4 glass of chilled hibiscus tea (you could also use sparkling juice) in melamine wine glasses, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and top with a strawberry or white coconut popsicle. These are very easy and delicious desserts to serve up, just make sure they are eaten right away!

 

Let me know if you have any q’s about these. I honestly can’t wait to bust out the fresh fruit, yard games, and sparklers for the weekend! I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!

  • I adore all these of these recipes. I’m all for healthy snacking, and it’s great to have the option to stick to a healthy diet during a celebration when people can easily go off track!

    Hi Anna, I’ve been reading your blog for about one year and want to thank you for sharing all of your ideas and inspirations :). I have enjoyed seeing the different combinations of clothing, food and decoration that you have written about on the blog. I personally just started a major diet last week and this post caught my eye as I have been spending more time in the kitchen cooking up fresh ideas. I currently use allot of coconut milk and cream in my cooking and your Popsicle Float sounds absolutely amazing! I know I will try to cook it sometime soon, maybe for a date night with my husband. For the Fourth, I love both of the fruit ideas. Great idea on the berry remix on an ice cream cone! Honestly most of the people I know are trying to do some sort of clean eating, or whole food diet and I am sure those will be a hit at the parties we are going to attend. Thanks again for sharing your ideas! Great post 🙂 – Andrea

    • Andrea, so good to hear from you! I so appreciate your kind note! We have been trying to eat better as well, and fresh fruit is all I am craving this summer. Hope you are doing well, keep in touch! x

    I know this is out of topic but when will you share the second part of how you met.

  • Oh wow, Popsicle floats look to die for!

    I’m probably going to replace vanilla with chocolate, what can I say, my name is Mia, and I’m a chocoholic, LOL 🙂

    Love,
    Mia
