Finally, the Summer holiday. Here are a few red, white, and blue recipes for your 4th of July gatherings. Some of these recipes are mine, some are not! Click on the picture or link below to find the recipe's source and try it out!

Let's start with breakfast...

This Berry Balsamic Crumble is a delicious and fruity way to start the morning! Berries are tossed in balsamic vinegar, basil, and honey, before simmering in the oven, and eventually topped with a healthier version of an oatmeal crust!

Similar to the chocolate banana pancakes, this recipe for Chia Muesli Breakfast Pudding is phenomenal for your body. Similar to oatmeal, but packed with proteins and healthy fats, Muesli is a traditional Swiss breakfast that will give you the energy to hike the Swiss Alps (or just make it through the hot, sweaty 4th of July parade!).

This recipe for Red, White, and Blue-berry Overnight French Toast was one of my first recipes, ever. Prepared the night before, all you need to do on the morning-of is pop it into the oven for a bit! The recipe includes blueberries and cream cheese, a wonderfully delicious combination! 

These Chocolate Banana Protein Pancakes with Fruit are a to die for breakfast, especially if you've got a long day ahead. Instead of packing your stomach full of carbs, which would leave you crashing and tired after an hour or so, this pancake recipe includes eggs and protein powder to keep you running all day long!

Now, a few for lunch and dinner...

This Blueberry, Strawberry, and Jicama salad is extremely healthy yet perfectly patriotic :)  Also wonderfully hydrating for a hot summer day!

This Red, White, and Blue Pasta Salad looks delicious and filling!

These 4th of July Kabobs are half way between a side dish and dessert!

...And now for dessert!

These Red Velvet Cupcakes are miniature sized and delicious. A light cake mix and homemade cream cheese frosting combine for some delicious cupcakes!

These Sparkling Water Cupcakes with White Chocolate Mousse Frosting are incredibly light, making them perfect for an active and hot day. Instead of leaving you stuffed and sorry, they'll leave you light and satisfied!

These White Chocolate-filled Raspberries are the perfect combination of naturally sweet fruit and delicious white chocolate. Easy to make in less than 5 minutes, they're also an easy last minute dessert option!

These Jolly Rancher Suckers are easy to make, with only a few ingredients and 5-10 minutes of baking time! Great for kids (or adults...) who want to run around all day but still enjoy dessert :)

These Strawberry Blueberry Mini Cheesecake Trifles are perfect for small, individual servings of dessert!

This 4th of July Blueberry Poke Cake is to die for. Just wait until you see how she does it :)

And now for Cocktails/Beverages...

These Blueberry & Chambord Patriotic Cocktails are delicious -- I know, I've tried them! :) Very refreshing and thirst quenching.

This Red, White, and Blue Sangria is perfect for making for a large group, then slowly drinking it down!

And finally, for good measure, this last recipe is not red white and blue but is an absolute favorite for large gatherings...

This Chicago-Style Chopped Salad recipe is enough for all of your guests! Because it's also filled with ditalini pasta, you can serve it all on one plate, instead of having to deal with multiple recipes on one tiny paper plate!
