Whether you’re going to a BBQ or you’re celebrating Fourth of July with a small family gathering, I’ve got you covered with what to eat/bring. Here are my favorite healthy 4th of July recipes!
BBQ food doesn’t have to be super heavy. Most of these recipes are lightened-up versions of your typical party fare, and they taste just as good!
Healthy 4th of July Recipes
In this post, I’m focusing on appetizers and desserts. (If you’re looking for a main dish, check out this post for my favorite Healthy Grilling Recipes for Summer!)
Is there anything more quintessentially summer than pie? This particular recipe doesn’t require any baking, plus it’s naturally red, white, and blue!
If you can believe it, there’s no mayo in these. Just a secret ingredient that makes them perfect (and not too heavy).
This crossover between guacamole and hummus is always a crowd-pleaser!
Super flavorful and soft. One of my favorite cookie recipes ever — and they’re healthy, too!
This cookie cake is exactly what you need at the dessert table for Fourth of July. It’s fruity, sweet but not TOO sweet, and super festive!
This recipe uses plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and mayonnaise. Your friends and family won’t even notice the difference, I promise!
I hope these healthy 4th of July recipes have inspired you! Whether you’re cooking for 2 or 20, your dish will be a hit. 🙂 Happy Fourth!
