15 Fun 4th of July Desserts

With the Fourth of July fast on it’s way, it’s time to start thinking about the party or barbecue you’re hosting! Even if you’re attending at a friend’s house rather than hosting, this is a great time to start thinking about what kinds of dishes you might take as well. Whenever we volunteer to make a dish for something, we like making desserts best because we’re huge sweet lovers and we love making eye catching foods that follow a theme. That’s why we’ve been scouring the Internet for awesome Fourth of July desserts all week!

1. Easy red, white, and blue mason jar trifle

If you’ve never tried a simple fruit or berry trifle before then we’re very sorry indeed to tell you that you’ve been missing out! We’re huge fans of this delicious red, white, and blue mason jar trifles made by Boulder Locavore that are easy to put together and simple to serve on the go thanks to the individual size of the jars. The blueberries add some blue, the strawberry sauce adds some rad, and the whipped cream takes care of the white!

2. No-bake summer berry lasagna

If you’re going to make something that’s themed red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July, would you actually prefer to make something really unique and a little novelty that your friends have probably never tried before? Then we have a feeling you’ll get a huge kick out of the way OMG Chocolate Desserts made a dessert lasagna! The cake and cream layers are red, white, and blue while strawberries and blueberries add a themed garnish too.

3. Fruit tart flag

Are you really enjoying this idea of using blue and red berries to help theme desserts after the American flag for the Fourth of July but you just haven’t quite seen the idea that’s grabbed your whole attention yet? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Food Network made this fantastic flag on a plate from strawberry and blueberry mini tarts!

Were you pretty darn intrigued indeed when we started talking about making mini fruit tarts but you’re not sure you’re invested enough in presentation to arrange them like a flag according to which fruit they feature? Then we have a feeling you might get along a little better with something like these red, white, and blue mini fruit tarts from Everyday Savvy that feature blueberries and raspberries together on each one, with whipped cream and powdered sugar to bring some white into the mix.
