Celebrate the sweet taste of independence with some sweet fruit-inspired summertime recipes! Try these ideas for patriotic punch and freedom fruit skewers to create healthy, festive treats for the Fourth of July holiday, or make either on any hot summer day to enjoy a burst of refreshing fruit flavor.

Ingredients: Patriotic Punch

Apple juice

White grape juice

Sprite

Apples

Watermelon cubes

Blueberries

 

Instructions

  1. Combine equal parts apple juice, white grape juice, and Sprite in a clear serving pitcher. Fill the pitcher three-quarters full so that there is room to add the fruit.
  2. Wash apples, and slice into rings. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, cut stars out of each apple ring. Continue until all apples are cut.
  3. One at a time, carefully add apple chunks to the punch so that the star shapes clearly show through the side. (Note: Adding enough apples to fully create one even layer will keep the chunks vertical.)
  4. Cut watermelon into chunks. Gently place each piece into the pitcher, creating a layer of watermelon on top of the apple chunks. Push the fruit layers down slightly to cover with punch.
  5. Wash blueberries, and carefully layer on top of the watermelon chunks. Top with equal parts of apple juice, white grape juice, and Sprite to cover the blueberries and fill the pitcher.

 

Ingredients: Freedom Fruit Skewers

Pineapple

Apples

Blueberries

Skewers

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut pineapple and apples into rings. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, cut stars out of each ring. Set aside.
  2. Thread blueberries onto skewers by themselves, or mix them with the apple rings. Arrange the skewers with the pineapple stars on serving dishes. Keep the prepared fruit in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
