Summer is here! The 4th of July is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with some patriotic recipes? We’re bringing in the holiday with some of our favorite Red, White and Blue Desserts.
They’re sure to please. In fact, when we tested these recipes in the office, we hardly had enough for photos because they were gobbled up so quickly. Better yet, these recipes are not only extra tasty but special-diet friendly – perfect for hosting parties!
In Oregon, fresh berries are everywhere this time of year. So, they make up our blue and red in these recipes. These patriotic recipes are best when made the night before.
Overnight Chia Seed Pudding
Recipe notes: Chia seed pudding can be made up to 3 days in advance. To shake up the flavor on this one, substitute a nut beverage (like hazelnut or almond) or by using other fresh berries, like raspberries, marionberries or blackberries.
Patriotic Berry Popsicles
Recipe notes: Use blackberries in place of blueberries or use a mixture of the two. You can use all frozen or fresh fruit instead of a combination, depending on what you have. If using all fresh, you will have to freeze after each addition (do not add hemp right away) and you probably will not have to add hemp to the strawberry mixture. If using all frozen fruit, thaw partially (as recommended with blueberries above) or add more hemp with the berry mixture.
What are red, white and blue recipes you making for the holiday? We’re always curious!
