July fourth is almost here and the weather sure has been heating up in South Florida! I am the biggest fan of 4th of July pool parties, picnics, grill-outs, etc.! Anything involving great company and yummy food, I’m there!
Unfortunately cookouts like these always include a whole bunch of sugary sweets that tend not to sit well in the heat (although they are all delicious), so I found a healthy snack that’s both yummy and super festive and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
I’ve also written up a recipe for a yummy Fourth of July sparkling lemonade with a special twist!
What you need:
- Wooden skewers
- Star-shaped cookie cutters (assorted sizes)
Cut your watermelon into large slices, you want to make sure the slices are thick enough to stick a skewer through without the watermelon falling off. At this time you can also rinse off the blueberries and set them aside on a paper towel to dry.
Once you have cut your watermelon into large, thick slices, use the star-shaped cookie cutters to cut out as many stars as you can!
Take the skewers and stick them into the watermelon stars adding blueberries in between and as needed making them look like shooting stars or fireworks!
Stack your healthy firework Fourth of July snacks on a plate and enjoy!
p.s. If you make these ahead of time, make sure to store them in the fridge to keep the watermelon crisp!
