Red, White and Berrylicious – ACME’s Flag Day Dessert Ideas
Flag Day -- June 14 -- is a holiday for all Americans to honor the country’s most iconic symbol.
Plus, they all have fresh summertime berries, which are packed with good-for-you antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Flag Day recipes include:
• Red, White and Berrylicious Parfaits – It’s a great visual to compile red, white and blue parfaits in clear glasses or martini glasses – And, the ingredients are delicious! Add sliced strawberries on the bottom,
blueberries on top and either Greek yogurt or light whipped cream in the center. Top with mini American flags toothpicks, if desired.
• Patriotic Strawberries – Try scooping out fresh strawberries with a melon baller and filling them vanilla Greek yogurt combined with a light whipped topping. Top the “crème” with a single blueberry to complete the red,
white AND blue look.
• Flag Kabobs – Try making flag fruit kabobs by skewering cubed pineapple, whole blueberries and whole strawberries. They’re fun to eat and to carry around a party.
