15 Red White and Blue Recipes

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.

Martha Stewart’s Red White and Blue Berry Trifle

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)

Strawberry Banana Bread

White Recipes

White Chocolate Cookies & Cream Fudge

Homemade Horchata (vegan, GF)

White Chocolate Vanilla Peanut Butter Puppy Chow (GF)

White Chocolate Peanut, Pretzel, & Chocolate Chip Fudge

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups with Chocolate Peanut Butter Filling

Vanilla Cake Batter and White Chocolate Chip Caramel Corn

Blue Recipes

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.

My friend Marla just posted a great roundup of 20 Patriotic 4th of July Dessert Ideas she’s compiled in case you need inspiration.

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!

  1. Love your recipe roundups! So many good ones…awesome photography!!

    Getting together with sister and her hubby and all their kiddos and my mom will be in town, so looking forward to that. Then, that evening, the whole gang will come back to my house where we have front row seats to fireworks in our backyard! Not going out in ANY crowds!

    Have a safe and joyful 4th with Scott and Skylar, Averie!

  2. Love your recipe round ups. I want to make some white chocolate PB cups and the corn chip crusted salmon cakes….and that is my only plan for July 4th so far! Have a great weekend!

  3. Those fudge recipes…the cookies and cream and the white chocolate, peanut, pretzel, chocolate chip one….seriously? Incredible.

  4. I love the looks of that clafoutis and those peanut butter cups. Adding them to my to make list. This year we are heading out for the 4th, so no cooking at home! But I did post a Red, White, & Blue Quick Berry Bread today!

  5. Wonderful roundup! I think adding in a handful of blueberries to your strawberry banana bread would be PERFECT for the 4th! Especially because bananas ripen so fast during the summer.

  6. Canada day is tomorrow, so there should be concerts in the park and fire works etc.. I might take in some of those festivities … or just stay home and BBQ.

  7. Great ideas! I haven’t decided what I am making yet.
