Healthy Ideas for Your 4th of July

Headed to or hosting a 4th of July party this week? Here are 4 healthy options for you! 

  1. Fruit Kabobs are a great option. Easy to make and festive looking! Makes for a great kid project as well. Simply layer strawberries, bananas, and blueberries or blackberries.
  2. Dessert doesn't have to break your calories! Try a simple layering of angel food cake, whip cream, and red/blue fruits for a beautiful dish. This is a household hit every year for me.
  3. Want to make a festive drink?  Place a few strawberries, blueberries, and chunks of pineapple in a glass. Muddle the fruit by mashing it with a wooden spoon. Get your cups, toss in ice cubes, bits of your fruit mix, and top with a ginger ale! 
  4. For another flag dish, simply cube red fruits, cheese, and a dish of blue fruits.        

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!
