You’re likely invited or hosting a barbecue for the Independence day weekend and a fresh, simple, delicious dessert is perfect addition to a warm summer’s day. Which is why I created this easy 4th of July fruit dip and berry platter.
Your family and friends are bound to enjoy a red, white, and blue themed fruit platter. As the temperatures rise, everyone will be reaching to get their hands on fresh fruit. What better than to serve it with a delicious, fluffy dip that sends your sweet cravings into overdrive.
A 4th of July celebration is the perfect excuse to gather friends and family for a backyard barbecue or a day out on the lake.
We plan on heading to the lake and will be packing up a cooler full of yummy snacks like this fruit dip along with bottles of Chardonnay and Viognier chilling on ice. The thing I miss most while living out in sunny California is not being able to meet up with the family in Wisconsin and head to the lake for a weekend of fun. It’s what summers are all about in the Midwest!
