To celebrate the Fourth of July, we wanted to share some of our favorite dietitian approved red, white, and blue recipes! These patriotic treats are packed with antioxidants and fiber, and are so easy to make even your kids can get involved. Check out some of our favorite recipes below.
1. Berry Cheesecake Bomb Pops from Lively Table
These popsicles are made with a mix of fruit, yogurt, and cream cheese. They can be enjoyed as a fruit-filled dessert, but are certainly healthy enough to have for an on-the-go breakfast on a hot summer morning!
2. Berry and Angel Food Cake Skewers from Stacey Mattinson
These adorable skewers are so simple to make, that you can leave this task to the kids! And, even though they’re easy to assemble, they make an elegant addition to any backyard barbecue.
3. Almond Granola Cups from Triad to Wellness
These little cups are packed with protein and fiber, and can be saved for a satisfying breakfast or snack long after the holiday is over.
4. Red, White, and Blue Watermelon Cake from Abbey’s Kitchen
Yup! This is a cake made out of watermelon. That means no baking required and no mid-celebration sugar crashes for the kids! Plus, guests always get a kick out of cutting open a cake and seeing a whole watermelon inside!
