I love a party theme and the possibilities for the Fourth of July are endless!!!
It is so much fun to go all out with the red, white and blue. Even with the food you serve! From breakfast to dinner, show your spirit with fun, festive foods.
Here are some of my ideas for super easy healthy and festive foods:
Red, White and Blue Parfait: Layer plain or vanilla yogurt, strawberries or raspberries and blueberries in a parfait glass.
Berry Waffles with Yogurt: Top whole wheat waffles with strawberries, blueberries and plain yogurt. Drizzle with maple syrup.
Angel Food Cake with Berries: Top angel food cake with strawberries or raspberries and blueberries.
Red, White and Blue Kabobs: Alternate strawberries, blueberries and apple slices or banana slices on a kabob skewer.
Chips and Salsa: On a chip and dip serving tray, place salsa in the middle and blue and white tortilla chips on the outside.
Stuffed Strawberries: Remove the core from strawberries, fill with cream cheese and top with a blueberry.
Red, White and Blue Snack Mix: Mix yogurt covered raisins, dried blueberries and dried cherries or cranberries.
Fruit and Cheese Plate: Arrange blueberries, strawberries or raspberries and assorted white cheeses in an American flag on a rectangle serving plate.
Tomato, Black Olive and Feta Salad: Combine black olives, diced tomatoes and feta. *From FitSugar
Red, White and Blue Potato Salad: Use red and white potatoes, green onions, plain Greek yogurt and blue cheese.
Red, White and Blue Sangria: Use white or red wine and throw in blueberries, apple slices, pear slices, strawberries, raspberries or whatever you like.
