Do you love fresh fruit like strawberries and blueberries? I do! In fact, when I was pregnant with my first child, I craved PINTS of strawberries. We had a joke going around that my baby would be born red like a strawberry!
My FAVORITE time to eat berries? Summer of course! Summer is the season for fun in the sun, but it’s also the season to remember and celebrate important holidays including Memorial Day and Independence Day.
When I think of summer and holidays, I think of picking strawberries in the fields in the hot summer sun. We picked strawberries when we lived on the East Coast and now we enjoy picking fresh strawberries on the West Coast! There’s just something about picking your own berries and knowing exactly where they came from.
Ah, the smell and juiciness of the strawberries, so fresh. My mouth is watering up as I write this! Strawberry picking is a fun family activity that you can enjoy together, too. I can remember just about every strawberry picking trip we took with the kids! Here are a few of our favorite strawberry recipes:
- Strawberry Salad
- Strawberry Mango Smoothie
- Strawberry Lemon Water
- Strawberry Smoothie
- Strawberry Walnut Oatmeal
- Strawberries and Cream Dessert
- Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pops – Great for holidays like Valentine’s Day!
This summer, celebrate in style at your holiday gathering by serving these red, white, and blue Jello cups. These Jello cups are perfect for both adults and kids to enjoy and are a refreshing treat during the hot summer days. They are super easy to make. Let the kids help make these tasty treat cups! Top them with sweet creamy whipped cream to add extra flavor if you wish. If you like a crunchy texture, you could crumble up graham crackers and sprinkle on top.
Insert the American Flag Toothpicks in the center of the cups for a more fun and festive look!

Slice several strawberries and place them in the red Jello cups. I recommend using a strawberry slicer for easy and quick strawberry slicing!
