The 4th of July is all about fireworks, bbqs, and festive red, white and blue-colored foods! I stay away from artificial colors as much as I can, but I still love to get my family in the festive spirit for every holiday. That means beautifully colored Red, White and Blue foods. There are so many natural alternatives to artificial food coloring, so I’ve rounded up nine of my favorite dye-free 4th of July recipes to share with you here! Whatever you’ll be grilling up this holiday, these dye-free recipes will surely fit into your menu and bring beautiful, natural colors to brighten up the table! What are your favorite Red, White and Blue recipes? For even more inspiration, check out my 4th of July Pinterest board!
Magical Fruit Wands
Wanting my kids to partake in the magical excitement this Fourth of July, I created these naturally red, white and blue Independence Day wands. Just place the wands in tall cups on the buffet table at your holiday BBQ alongside all those other special holiday recipes you're craving. Then watch as the real magic happens when everything vanishes….everything that is except the smiles!
