It’s almost the Fourth of July and although I haven’t made any adorable festive food that’s red, white, and blue all in one, I do have recipes from each color.
If only I was as prepared for the holiday as Martha is.
My Red Recipes
Strawberries and Cream Smoothie (vegan, GF)
Coconut Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Almonds (vegan, GF)
Cinnamon Sugar & Ginger Roasted Potato Sticks (vegan, GF)- not quite red but close
Microwave Strawberry Vanilla Mug Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Glaze – this one falls under the white cake with red berries on a blue plate special category
Cranberry & Orange Ginger Mango Chutney (vegan, GF)
Homemade Horchata (vegan, GF)
Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes (vegan, GF)
Purple Rain Smoothie (vegan, GF) – banana, chia seeds, berries, ice
Mixed Berry Clafoutis – the closest thing I’ve got to red, white and blue all in one – this dessert doesn’t get enough love and it’s so good. Make it like pancake batter and you can do it a blender in about 30 seconds, add berries, pour in a pan and bake. Custard meets pancakes, in bar form.
Do you have any favorite Red, White and Blue recipes?
Feel free to link them up
I have seen so many adorable things all over Pinterest, Foodgawker, and blogs.
What are you doing to celebrate the Fourth?
That’s just 5 days away (Wednesday) It really snuck up on me! Time flies.
The only bummer is that it’s on a Wednesday. Too bad we can’t capitalize on a long weekend situation this year.
We have no plans and hopefully will avoid the crowded fireworks shows and will instead stand on our balcony and should probably be able to catch at least 3 or 4 fireworks shows going on around San Diego’s bays and harbors.
We’ll definitely be avoiding the beaches. Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day are days to stay far away from the beaches since they are packed with tourists and locals alike, and parking is horrendous. We’ll walk to whatever we decide to do.
My request is a nice sunny warm day spent with my family. Simple stuff.
For anyone pre-celebrating this weekend, stay safe.
Thanks for the Healthy Surprise Snack Box Giveaway entries and have a great weekend!
