Another holiday is near, which means there’s another opportunity for themed meals! If you enjoy preparing themed meals for your family, we have some Fourth of July breakfast recipes for you. But if themed meals aren’t your thing or just create more stress for you, that’s ok too! We’re just here to share fun recipes if they bring a little more joy to your life and home.
These red, white, and blue skewers are perfect for July 4th! The original recipe uses French toast squares, but you could use any kind of breakfast bread–pancakes, waffles, or even biscuits! All you have to do is layer banana slices, strawberry slices, blueberries, and cut up pieces of French toast on skewers. Then sprinkle with cinnamon or drizzle with honey or syrup. Just make sure you have enough for seconds because this will likely be a family favorite!
Variations: marshmallows instead of bananas, blackberries instead of blueberries, and cherries instead of strawberries. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
Create a patriotic parfait by layering plain or vanilla yogurt, blueberries, and strawberries…or any other red and blue fruits! Alternatively, don’t layer the different ingredients. Simply top a scoop of yogurt with the fruit to create a simple yet festive breakfast.
These naturally colorful scones are easy to make and even easier to eat. Their patriotic nod comes from blueberries, cherries, and white chocolate chips—yum! These scones pair perfectly with a hot cup of coffee (for parents only, of course!) or a tall glass of milk.
Summer is smoothie season, so let’s make a festive one! This smoothie is definitely a little more involved, because it calls for three different combinations to make red, white, and blue layers. But if you’re making them for a crowd, it’s simple to make one large batch of each color. The best part of this recipe is that it doesn’t call for any food coloring! The blue layer is colored with spirulina, a natural superfood full of vitamins and rich in the color blue!
This Fourth of July yogurt bark is delicious and simple to make. Your kids would probably enjoy helping out with it! It only calls for four ingredients: yogurt, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. Easy, healthy, and delicious!
We hope you have a wonderful day celebrating America with your family and trying these Fourth of July breakfast recipes!
