Providing healthy options in the annual Fourth of July spread can be a challenge. While it doesn’t take magic to come up with a fun patriotic treat, a wand definitely helps — a fruit wand. With just two fruits and a skewer, the entire family can celebrate Independence Day with a star-spangled snack.
• 1 watermelon
• 1 quart of blueberries
• 20 skewers
Preparation & Assembly
Cut the watermelon into half inch slices. Then use a star-shaped cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
Gently slide 5 or 6 blueberries on each skewer, leaving enough room for the watermelon star on the top. If you’re assembling with keiki, have them name a state as they slide on each star.
Place the assembled skewers on a white plate or serving tray for a red, white and blue display.
