Red, White, and Blueberry Dusted Strawberries

Red, White, and Blueberry Dusted Strawberries

The highlight of summer is finally here! The fourth of July is the time of celebration of our independence as a country, to make memories with loved ones, and share our thanks. But what is a party without plenty of festive food and treats? While we agree that all the apple pie and Bomb Pops are much welcomed staples of the holiday, it’s also nice to have a few healthier treats available to keep the energy up.

Thankfully strawberries, blueberries, and yogurt are easily accessible, delicious, and nutritious ingredients that can be a part of many July Fourth recipes that call for the iconic color scheme. Our recipe for Blueberry Dusted Yogurt Strawberries is easy to whip up in a pinch, is naturally sweetened, and adds an elegant yet still festive flair to your party spread.

The natural sugars and antioxidants in berries and honey will help give you an extra boost to keep the party going into the evening, and the Greek yogurt also adds an extra dose of probiotics that your gut will be thankful for!
