Festive Red, White and Blue Desserts


Banana Split With a Twist
Sweet and juicy watermelon is standard fare for summer holidays, but why settle for a slice when you can go for a split? Cut bananas in half lengthwise and place the halves on plates. Top with watermelon balls formed with an ice-cream scoop. Add dollops of whipped cream, then sprinkle on berries and chopped nuts or granola.


Revolutionary Berries
One at a time, dip strawberries into the chocolate and then into blue sugar or edible glitter.


Spangled Sandwich Pops
Wave the flag proudly — then feed the troops! First, skewer mini ice-cream sandwiches on popsicle sticks. Then, press the exposed filling into a plate of sprinkles or nonpareils. To keep mess to a minimum, serve the pops in colorful cupcake liners.



Mini S'Mores
You don't need to sit around a campfire to make these mini summer desserts -- just pop marshmallows sandwiched between graham cracker squares underneath the broiler for a few seconds, then dip them in melted chocolate. For a July 4th, Memorial Day or Labor Day gathering, sprinkle with festive nonpareils and sprinkles.


Striped Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet cake and whipped cream-cheese frosting are already a perfect pair, but fresh blueberries and raspberries add that perfect patriotic touch for July 4th., Memorial Day or Labor Day.


Red, White, and Blue Parfaits
For a sweet treat that isn't packed with calories and fat, try this pretty parfait. Fresh blueberries and strawberries layered between low-fat vanilla yogurt add easy red-white-blue flair to this tasty dessert.



Sparkler Cupcakes
Confetti cupcakes will be the hit of your party with a few festive add-ons. Firework-inspired swirls and colorful sprinkles dress up these cupcakes.


Red, White, and Blueberry Trifle
Add blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries to a creamy vanilla pudding and cubed pound cake mixture to make this easy (just 25 minutes of prep work!) patriotic summer dessert.
