July Fourth Healthy Recipes




July Fourth is one of my favorite holidays of the year!  I love getting together with friends and family, enjoying the summer warmth, watching fireworks, and of course eating all the festive foods.  I wanted to provide three of my favorite healthier recipes for the fourth that will be a huge hit at any gathering!



  • Strawberry, Banana, Marshmallow Skewers:
    On a wooden skewer, thread half a strawberry, banana slice, half a strawberry, and marshmallow.  Repeat twice and end with another half strawberry.  Drizzle chocolate syrup (I melted a few dark chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzled with a toothpick).  Decorate with festive blue sprinkles!


  • Blueberry, Raspberry Parfait:
    In a small mason jar, layer strawberry greek yogurt (or your favorite flavor), blueberries, yogurt, raspberries, yogurt, and top with blueberries.


  • Pineapple Refresher:
    In a blender, combine 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1/4 cup coconut water, 1/2 banana, 1 cup fresh pineapple, 1 cup ice.  Blend thoroughly, pour into a glass, and garnish with a strawberry!  For an alcoholic version, add 1.5 ounces of your favorite vodka!


I hope you enjoy these quick and easy festive recipes!  If you try them out, tag me on instagram @kblount42.



Happy July 4th!!
