Last Minute Memorial Day Dessert

Need a dessert to bring to a BBQ?  I’ve got you covered. It’s super easy, fast, and looks great!


  • Red fruit. I used strawberries, but raspberries, cherries, or watermelon are a perfect alternative.
  • Something white: golden raspberries, pineapple, whipped cream, marshmallows, or white covered pretzels or raisins.
  • Blue fruit: blueberries or blackberries!

Directions: (only one!)
1. Arrange on a plate in the shape of the flag. This is perfect as a dessert OR as a side dish.

For a dessert, serve with ice cream or whipped cream!  Total prep time: 3 minutes.
