The Fourth of July has always been a big thing in my family. My grandfather, uncle, dad, sister, brother, and several other family members, as well as friends, have either served or are currently serving in the U.S. military. Growing up, we would typically grill out with family and friends and then head over to the local military base to watch a big firework show in the evening. It’s something we look forward to every year—celebrating this great country and the freedom that comes with the privilege to live here.
As much as I love to travel to other countries, I’m always happy to come back home to the good ole’ US of A where everyone speaks English, the bathrooms are free, and Super Target exists.
As cheesy as it might be, I love to reinforce the patriotic theme with red, white, and blue foods. While it’s not as easy to create savory foods, like burgers and such in those colors, (although I do have a red, white, and blue-ish potato salad) patriotic desserts are super simple and even fun to create!
It’s also nice to show up to a Fourth of July cookout or get together with a pretty and festive dessert, like this Patriotic DIY Fruit Pizza Platter. It has everything you need to make your own mini fruit pizza and just so happens to resemble the American flag. You could easily customize this platter by using fruit in other colors and any shape cutter for the cookies to serve at any event, like birthday parties, showers, etc.
These mini fruit pizza cookies are not only cute, but also delicious and pretty healthy too! Everything is vegan friendly, refined sugar free, and includes a gluten-free option as well! If you make this, please tag me on Instagram so I can see your recreations! Be sure to scroll down to see some other patriotic dessert ideas! Have a happy and safe 4th, my friends! 🇺🇸
