55 Healthier July 4th Desserts

These 55 healthier desserts for July 4th are either paleo, vegan, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, whole grain or without added sugar. When you want to decorate treats in red, white and blue for the 4th of July without food coloring, it’s all up to the berries, making this more or less of a healthy berry dessert round-up! I have thrown in a few treats that don’t have berries in them, just because they’d still be perfect for a July 4th BBQ ....more

Vegan Coconut Pudding (paleo)

This paleo-friendly and vegan coconut pudding is ultra thick, creamy and rich and only takes about 15 minutes to make! In my book, there’s a coconut banana tart with a coconut milk based pudding-like filling. There was already butter and an egg yolk in the crust so I figured it’d be completely pointless to attempt making the coconut pudding filling vegan or dairy-free ....more

Vegan Mini Cherry Pies (gluten-free, whole grain)

These mini cherry pies use oats, oat flour and coconut oil in the crust, making them naturally gluten-free and vegan! I made these gluten-free mini cherry pies for my latest post on My Baking Addiction. They’re heavy on the streusel (which, believe me, is a good thing!) and have an almond-flavored cherry filling ....more

Ginger Berry Popsicles (naturally vegan, gluten-free)

These ginger berry popsicles only have five ingredients and are naturally gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and are sweetened with bananas! Popsicles have never really been my thing. The ones from my childhood were basically sugar, artificial flavoring and coloring ....more

Healthy Chicken Fajitas

I totally admit to buying store-bought pre-seasoned fajitas before moving to Germany about 5 1/2 years ago. Fajitas aren’t a thing over here, meaning taking the easy way out with pre-marinated fajitas was out, so I begrudgingly switched over to homemade fajitas. I’m ridiculously happy I did because these are SO much better ....more
