With Memorial Day right around the corner and festive barbecue’s popping up left and right, who isn’t in need of a delicious recipe decorated with our dashing colors of Independence? With the spirit of the holiday in mind, here is a tasty (and EASY) roundup of recipes from a few of my favorite health-minded bloggers. Enjoy!

My friend at Around the Plate likes to whip up her Red, White, + Blue Parfait as an American classic for her family. Simply layer a whole grain granola with protein packed Greek yogurt and fresh berries for a fabulously festive way to kick off the holiday weekend!

Nutella Crepes from Love & Zest. Need I say more? Seriously. Just add fresh berries to a whole grain crepe, tortilla, or heck, even a slice of bread, covered with a decadent spread of chocolate nut spread and YUM.

This Blueberry, Strawberry, + Jicama Chip Dip from Two Peas + Their Pod is a very unique take on a fresh dip. Certainly a unique flavor, but a fun way to introduce jicama to your kiddos!

And of course, I have to give a shout out to the tasty bloggers found right here at GF4K!

This no-bake dessert lets kids help with any patriotic celebration preparation. All it takes is a quick dip, roll, and a bite. Easy peasy and zero excuses NOT to share these Red, White + Blue Dipped Strawberries at your next get together.

If you come across blue potatoes at your local market? You will have to mix up a batch of this Red, White, + Blue Potato Salad. A specialty twist on a classic picnic addition.

Fourth of July Cake. It’s cake. No further description needed.

While you are busy trying to please the kiddos, be sure to mix up a dish or two to impress the grownups as well. This Independence Day Salad is the perfect choice. Feta, fresh berries, nuts, and mixed greens. Fresh, light, and ideal for a summer day.

Hope you and your family enjoy celebrating the lives and memories of the incredible men and women who have fought for our freedom throughout our lifetime and beyond. Our family of four will be celebrating with friends with a 5K, cookout, and hopefully our small West Michigan  parade as the cherry on top! Cheers!
