3 Last-Minute Patriotic Desserts (Gluten Free + Vegan)

9:55 AM

July snuck up on us (because soccer)—this morning I opened my eyes, checked my phone and whatdoyouknow, July 4th. Independence Day! 'Merica!

You're probably doing something festive tonight. Maybe you're going to a grill out. And maybe you've had your dessert planned for weeks. It's probably in the fridge right now, elaborate and gorgeous and so Martha Stewart. 

Or, maybe you're like me; you swore that yesterday was like, early June, right? Didn't the World Cup just start last week? Crap, what am I going to bring tonight?

Don't worry, we've got you covered with three easy, allergy-friendly options that will help you seem so Martha Stewart regardless of your busy schedule. And bonus, they're all pretty healthy!

1. Red, White and Blue Berries & Cream from Cook Eat Paleo

Hello gorgeous. The mason jars are obviously adorable, but you could also layer these into small, clear dessert cups to inexpensively feed more people. Also, if you don't already have a refrigerated can of coconut milk, you have two options: you could pick up a vegan whipped cream from your local grocery, or you could drizzle in vegan vanilla yogurt. Find the recipe here!

2. Watermelon Granita from Yummy Healthy Easy

Folks, this has three ingredients. How much more simple can you get? Throw some blueberries on top to let your freedom flag fly. Find the recipe here!

3. Sangria in Rosé, Bourbon & Blue from A Farmgirl's Dabbles

So, we all know that cocktails are just liquid dessert, right? Just skip the edibles and jump straight to a refreshing glass of adult fun. Call it your signature freedom cocktail (and call yourself a mixologist) to instantly up you clout score. Serve it with those adorably patterned paper straws (our Target almost always has some) and voila, you've created the best part of the BBQ. Find the recipe here!

Enjoy your party!
