The Fourth of July is a meaningful time of year when I like to, well, pig out! Just the thought of delicious comfort food and bright colors in the sky gets me really excited for the upcoming holiday. If you are curious about some recipes that’ll blow your guests’ socks off, I’ve got you covered. To also make sure everyone is included, I’ve provided some vegan options. Yay!
These 4th of July Blondies are an easy dessert for your guests to pick up while they move around. Trust me, they’ll be back for seconds!
Red White & Blue Cream Soda Bar
Let your guests have a little creative opportunity by allowing them to set up their own drinks at your cream soda bar. Best part is, it’s less work for you!
Cheesecake is seriously an addiction of mine, and I don’t have a sweet tooth at all! This creamy red white and blue dessert is easy to make in batches but don’t be surprised if there are no leftovers!
Buzzed Cherry Bombs
If you want to add a boozy treat that people can snack on, these cherry bombs are perfect!
Italian Cream Soda
If the thought of a self-serve soda bar doesn’t suit your fancy, you can build some for your guests by using this amazing recipe from Butter with a Side of Bread.
Popcorn bars are one of the best budget options out there and can be easily dressed up to look fancy.
More cheesecake you say? Yes, please! Even people who claim to not be salad eaters will go nuts over this.
Coleslaw is traditionally very unhealthy and very unvegan but it doesn’t have to be!
Baked beans are a great option for picky eaters who won’t go for typical veganized dishes.
Buffalo Chickpea Burger
Love spice? Me too! This buffalo chickpea burger will have you drooling.
Vegan Sloppy Joes
I got so excited when I found this sloppy joe recipe as I haven’t had one of these in quite a while!
Vegan Macaroni Salad
Put a vegan spin on a traditionally milky dish and you will save your guests and yourself a tummy ache for sure!
If these Fourth of July dishes don’t get you excited for the fireworks, I don’t know what will! I can’t wait to get started on the vegan dishes this holiday and share them with family.
