4th of July Delicious Treats
• • • Hamburgers • • •
Set up the barbeque for grilled foods for this holiday celebration. Whether you have a poolside or a lawn party, sumptuous hamburgers right off the grill make everyone’s mouth water with anticipation. Step up your game with brioche buns and don’t forget the fresh red onion slices, beefsteak tomato slices, cheese of your choice, and fresh green loose-leaf lettuce.
• • • Blueberries • • •
Packed with a powerhouse of nutrients, the delicious and sweet blueberry makes the perfect fruit cocktail for 4th of July delicious treats. Pair them up with red watermelon slices and you’ve got a super-healthy alternative for everyone in your party.
• • • 3 Berry Layered Cake • • •
What a sweet and colorful delight is this 3-layer cake. First, it’s layered lusciously with whipped cream and strawberry compote. Then, it’s decoratively topped with fresh blueberries, strawberries, and amazing large blackberries. Remember to keep your 4th of July delicious treats packed with nutrients by using locally grown fruit whenever possible!
• • • Gelatin Parfait • • •
We all grew up with those little boxes of Jello in our cupboards that our mothers would turn into sweet desserts and salads. In our culture, Jello has become as common a phrase for gelatin as Kleenex has for tissue paper. But, the great thing is, it’s easy-peasy to create a light gelatin dessert, layered to perfection for this day of celebration (and many others)!
