Fourth of July Fruit Graham


Celebrate the Fourth of July with my new favorite snack!  I am obsessed with this low calorie treat.  In fact one whole graham cracker can be enjoyed for less than 100 calories!!

A simple snack yet so delicious and healthy.  For this simple treat spread the yogurt mixture on the graham and top with your favorite blue and red fruit.  For this picture I chose strawberries and blueberries. To get the strawberries into a smaller size I chopped the strawberries into fine squares.  The crackers are best enjoyed if served immediately. 

This snack is a perfect kitchen project for children. Once the strawberries are chopped children can easily assemble this fun snack! Including children in the kitchen at young ages can help set the foundation for lifelong healthy eating habits. 



What are some of your favorite  Fourth of July recipes?

Enjoy!

  1. Kristen, this is just too cute! I love recipes that allow kids to really get involved and "play" with customizations so they're really involved in the process of food. Perfect for the Fourth - so great!
