Red, White, and Blue Fruit Cups

Hey friends.

It's time to get all patriotic up in here.

 







 





























I'm keeping it simple yet colorful and so pretty with these Red, White, and Blue Fruit Cups. I love themed foods if you can't tell already.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I tend to go a little overboard with the themed foodie props too. This time it's all in the name of independence!

Red, White, and Blue Fruit Cups

slightly adapted from Rachael Ray

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream

Slice strawberries and combine in a bowl with blueberries. Sprinkle berries with two teaspoons sugar.

Add heavy whipping cream and remaining sugar to mixer bowl. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Serve berries in small cups with generous spoonfuls of fresh whipped cream.

Need some more patriotic inspiration? Check out these other patriotic recipes from my blog, though most don't have pictures because I still need to go back and update ones that were lost! But the recipes are still good :) 

 

Happy 4th of July everyone!

 

Peace, and bacon grease!

Colorful and good for you, what a rocking dessert. The second picture made me crazy for a minute because I could see your reflection in the spoon but the orientation doesn't match. Then I figured out that you must have flipped the orientation of the picture.

I ALWAYS get reflections of our ceiling fans on my spoons.
