Berry season is in full swing, so why not create a patriotic dish to serve at your next gathering? I made this super simple Berry American Flag that will be perfect for your 4th of July party! The kids at our party gobbled up the fruit. It’s amazing that just adding a skewer and design can make kids excited about healthy eating.
- Angle Food Cake*
I chose to use a pre-made Angel Food cake from Whole Foods for convenience and to ensure my nephew was able to eat the cake due to dietary restrictions.
Simply insert 7 (or so) blueberries on the top left hand side of your flag, followed by a piece of angel food cake then a strawberry. Continue this pattern until you have created a flag.
Note: Due to the size of my strawberries, I added 2 half-skewers of blueberries to fill-in empty space. You could also use raspberries in place of or in addition to the strawberries.
I’ve seen some flags that use marshmallows for the white stripes, but I wanted to eliminate any artificial products. We served organic vanilla yogurt on the side if anyone wanted a dip, but you could also use cool whip.
