I hope everyone is having a wonderful 4th of July and have interesting plans for this long weekend. I love entertaining family and friends during the holidays and what better way to do so than with fresh fruits and deserts! Although I already have my personal favorites, there are a couple from other bloggers this year that I will be trying out this afternoon. Hopefully one of these plates make it to your kitchen countertop. Nutella-Dipped Strawberries This is a classic in my book. I am a lover of these two ingredients. Whether it is just a bowl of strawberries or a spoonful of Nutella, I am all for it! I have made these for house warming parties and girls night. This plate goes well with a glass of wine, or some milk for the kids. Fresh Fruit Parfaits If you are looking for that “red, white, and blue” feel, throw in a little whip cream, sliced strawberries and blueberries in a cup. These are easy to make and hard to resist. Simple Fruit Shakes If you are running out of time, just keep it simple with milkshakes and cherry-whipped toppings for the little ones. You can even vary it up with Oreo cookies and vanilla wafers. The possibilities with milkshakes are endless, so go on, try something new to keep you cool this holiday!
