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:

  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries
  • Wooden skewers
  • Star-shaped cookie cutters (assorted sizes)

Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

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!

Step 3:

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!

Step 4:

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!
