Easiest 4th of July Fruit Dessert Ever

If you're anything like me, sometimes your best intentions end up falling by the wayside. I've been seeing all of these adorably cute decorating and food ideas for the Fourth of July floating around the internet lately, of course. Yet here it is, just a few day before the holiday, and I have done none of those things.

Why? Well, you see, I will be working at my "real" job outside the home on the 4th. And the 3rd. And the 2nd. So I would have had to plan a good bit ahead to get anything substantial done. Unfortunately, I didn't do that. Life, ya know.

But have no fear! I do have a bit of craftiness up my sleeve. It's likely been done since the beginning of time (or at least since the first American Independence Day), so I'm just here to offer you a quick reminder.

Strawberries are red, blueberries are blue, and bananas are white! Toss together with a bit of sugar, lemon juice, and another fruit juice of choice. Put them in a cute serving jar, top with whipped cream, and you have yourself a cute, festive, no-brainer fruit dessert!


Quit stressing, already! ;-)

    1. You're right, Julie! I ate a belly-full of this the other night, and was not the least bit guilty.
