Turner’s favorite foods are strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, watermelon, and peanut butter. He would live off them if he could. I’m always trying to come up with creative snack ideas to keep it interesting. The 4th of July is the perfect way to incorporate festive snacks into our day. I wanted to share some of our favorites with you!
- Red White and Blue Ice Pops
Bottom Layer: blended frozen strawberries, plain yogurt, a splash of almond milk
Middle Layer: blended frozen bananas, plain yogurt, a splash of almond milk
Top Layer: blended frozen blueberries, plain yogurt, a splash of almond milk. This turned out kinda purple, but it was delicious nonetheless!
If I was patient, I would have frozen each layer before adding another, but who has time for that?!
- Red White and Blue Fruit Platter
A pretty presentation always makes food more appetizing. I use this Porcelain Egg Crate to dress up our plain old berries and bananas. I actually use this for other snacks like pretzels, gold fish, cheerios, etc. It’s a fun way to display toddler foods.
- Red White and Blue Parfait Pops
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups plain yogurt with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 Tbsp agave nectar, 1/4 C. fresh blueberries, and 1/4 C. fresh diced strawberries. Stir to combine and divide evenly between dixie cups. Cut festive straws in half and stick in the center of the cup. Top with a Tbsp of granola and freeze overnight. And, there you have, festive parfait pops!
I hope you and your kiddos like these treats as much as we do! I’d love to hear some of your favorite holiday snacks too!
