We all love an ice cream cone every so often but if you’d rather indulge in a charbroiled cheeseburger or second helping of potato salad this Independence Day, these four light and refreshing treats will help satisfy your sweet tooth. As if that’s not enough to love, they’re packed with water to help keep you hydrated in the summer heat, and lots of antioxidants.

Firecracker Berry Frozen Yogurt Pops – A festive yogurt & berry dessert both kids and adults will love

Berry Green Smoothie – A great way to mix some green into your red, white and blue

Watermelon & Berry Fruit Salad – Use a star-shaped cookie cutter to give your watermelon a little patriotic pizazz.

Berry Ice Cubes – Perfect for dressing up a glass of sparkling water or a club soda cocktail

Have a cool, happy Fourth of July!
