There are so many colorful, patriotic 4th of July food items! Unfortunately, so many of them have all sorts of food dyes in them.
There are so many problems with food dye, not to mention one son of mine goes completely out of control after consuming it. So we avoid food dye as much as possible.
Here are some naturally colored red, white and blue food to help you celebrate the 4th of July in style, but without any food dye. Yay!
4th of July Food
The best Strawberry Shortcake you'll ever make!
I’m not sure anything screams summer as much as strawberry shortcake does. This is always a favorite with my kids.
This recipe is super delicious and pretty too!
Homemade Fresh Salsa Recipe
Pair some blue tortilla chips with red salsa for a blue and red festive snack or side dish.
Homemade (or store bought) salsa and chips are a great additional to a 4th of July BBQ or get together.

This easy to make salad combines creamy cheesecake filling with a medley of juicy strawberries, plump blueberries, and sweet raspberries. Great for adding color (and flavor!) without any dyes.
Mixed Berry Cobbler
Small Town Woman has this recipe for a super tasty looking strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry cobbler.
We all love cobblers around here. Adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top or a dollop of whipped cream is a great way to make this red, white, and blue all dye free.
No-Bake Berry Pies
Wow! These look so yummy! The fact that they are no bake is awesome, you won’t need to heat up your house in the hot July heat.

Mini Fruit Pizzas with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
My friend brought something similar to these to a summer playdate years ago. They were a hit with all the kids.
I’ve since made them and found them to be very easy to make and just as good as when my friend made them.
