Independence Day is a day for gathering with family and friends to celebrate the independence of our nation. Whether you are going all in with fireworks at home, spending the day boating, or enjoying a long weekend camping, odds are good that there will be a spread of food involved. Prepare yourself with this simple and refreshing recipe for Patriotic Fruit Kabobs with Honey Cream Dip from 100 Days of Real Food!
For the kabobs, you are going to want to get your favorite red, white, and blue fruit. Strawberries, blueberries, and bananas are a great combination to start with, but get creative with your fruits!!! Dice the fruit into bite-sized pieces and thread them onto the skewers.
The honey cream dip is almost as simple! Combine the ingredients below using an electric mixer. Start on law and gradually increase your speed. Whip together for several minutes until you have a thick, creamy consistency.
Honey Cream Dip Ingredients
4 ounces cream cheese, cut into chunks (½ a block)
½ cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
These kabobs would pair nicely with a wine (or grape juice) spritzer like this refreshing Red, White and Blue Wine Spritzer recipe. Make your life a little easier by selecting recipes that have similar ingredients so you can spend more time relaxing and enjoying Independence Day with your loved ones.
Be safe and Happy 4th of July!
