FRUITY 4th of July Desserts
July 4th is the perfect time of year to enjoy fruit-themed desserts. Pies are the all-star in this category! You can make full-size pies with stars on top or miniature pies for serving to a crowd. I also love fruit skewers for a healthier dessert option.
This blueberry star pie (above) is my favorite fruity Fourth of July dessert! It’s blueberry but the star technique could easily be used on other pie flavors (cherry, apple, etc) too! Get the recipe for this gorgeous patriotic pie here! Check out more fruity patriotic desserts…

If you’re looking for a healthier 4th of July dessert for the adults and the kids, these Fourth of July fruit pops from my friend Naomi at Bakers Royale will do the trick! I love how cute they look on paper straws! These are also a great last-minute treat too (no baking required – woohoo!). See details here.

Everybody loves cake and what better way to celebrate America’s birthday than with a cake-themed 4th of July dessert?!

Kid-Friendly 4th of July Desserts
The whole family will love these sweet options, but definitely the little ones!
The kids will absolutely LOVE these cute red, white, and blue firecracker Jell-O cups! Isn’t this such a cute 4th of July dessert? I love the stripes and what little one doesn’t love Jell-O? These would be cute made in mini size too (you know how I love mini desserts)!
If you’ll be beating the heat for the 4th of July this year, then ice cream is a must! Keep it cute with dipped waffle cones and lots of red, white and blue sprinkles! I love these patriotic cones from Noble Pig. Set up a full sundae bar with all the toppings (blueberries, cherries and white chocolate chips would be festive additions!).
