The Fourth of July is a special time to celebrate freedom, enjoy community, and create memories with family and friends. This year, treat your loved ones (and yourself) to delicious food that doesn’t compromise nutrition for taste or appearance. We’ve gathered the recipes that have it all.
Grilled Blackberry, Strawberry, Basil and Brie Pizza Crisps
These crisps from Half Baked Harvest are a perfect and unique summer dish. They contain the ideal balance of sweet and savory, with simple ingredients that will leave you feeling satisfied. Arrange your crisps to resemble the American flag for an extra element of fun, and invite kids to make their own for a Fourth of July activity!
Red White and Blue Popsicles
If you’re looking for a refreshing dessert, try these healthy popsicles cooked up by Eating Well. They require very little preparation, and are a tasty way to cool down on a warm evening outdoors. Raspberries, strawberries and blueberries add patriotic flare to a traditional summer snack.
Fourth of July Cocktail (with alcohol and alcohol-free)
We love this cheery beverage recipe from Linda Wagner. Her cocktail is colorful, fresh, and holds flavor with or without alcohol. Propose a Fourth of July toast! Whether you’re entertaining, heading to a fireworks show, or relaxing at home, we hope your holiday involves natural and appetizing food.
