Can you believe that the 4th of July is coming up this Saturday? It’ll be a day of fireworks, delicious food, and honoring independence in the United States. To help celebrate for my U.S. readers, I rounded up ten of my favorite healthy July 4th ideas from around the web.
These healthy cupcakes from Chocolate Covered Katie look scrumptious- and they’re made of healthier cupcake options. The best part has to be the blueberries hiding inside!
Happy Healthy Mama’s dessert pizza is made of a coconut chocolate crust with almonds and dates: so much healthier than your typical dessert pizza crusts.
Such a great idea for that July 4th barbecue– strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries in ice cubes for the perfect ice cubes!
Mocktails with fresh fruit! While the recipe calls for soda, I’d suggest using club soda and a hint of ginger for that kick.
Aren’t these “firework” fruit kabobs incredibly sweet? This is reminding me to start using my cookie cutter shapes that are just lying around in my kitchen!
What’s better than fresh fruit (and yogurt-covered pretzels) as a snack? Love the way that Family Fresh Meals styled this mostly healthy tray as the American flag!
Don’t munch on boring iceberg lettuce salads: instead, go for this tasty red, white, and blue salad! The special part has to be these cute jicama stars.
This is quite possibly my favorite of the ten: love the creativity behind I Creative Ideas’ DIY watermelon grill with fruit skewers. Isn’t it amazing what people come up with? (Yet another reason to browse Pinterest).
This recipe with feta, tomatoes, and watermelon is perfect for the grill! I’m adding this to my cooking list for the summer.
These patriotic popsicles are super cute! Best of all, there’s no synthetic dyes- just raspberries and blueberries. A suggestion: getting organic versions of the fruit.
