A few weeks ago, I had a chance to visit one of our local strawberry farms, Eno River Farm. They not only had fresh strawberries but another one of my favorite fruits, blueberries. Blueberries are filled with antioxidants and have other health benefits, so I brought home an abundance of berries that day; they were delicious. I will be visiting again to get some berries for the Fourth of July easy desserts I’ll be making!
What To Do With All These Berries!
My daughter told me that her roommate’s birthday is coming up, and she wants her favorite dessert, her mom’s Strawberry Shortcake. That got me thinking that I needed some Fourth of July easy desserts, and I needed more than one. With the Fourth of July approaching, strawberries, blueberries with a little whip cream on top are the perfect color scheme for Independence Day!

So I decided to start my search on Pinterest and food blogs; food bloggers know their stuff. I not only looked up Strawberry Shortcake but other recipes using these delicious fruits.
Here are just a few of the recipes that I found which will help me put my strawberries and blueberries to good use. Here’s hoping these Fourth of July Easy Desserts will help make your holiday more festive too!
