Red White & Blue Jello Fruit Salad

by Jenn

It’s almost the 4th of July so I thought I would share an easy, but fun 4th of July recipe with you.  It’s one of my favorites, easy to make, and always a crowd pleaser.  This Red White & Blue Jello Fruit Salad is one dish our family has not gone without for as long as I can remember.  I like it because it’s a nice low-calorie dessert with plenty of fresh fruit.  You can never go wrong with fresh fruit!

Red White & Blue Jello Fruit Salad

The Red White & Blue Jello Fruit Salad is one of my favorite desserts because it’s so darn tasty and not nearly as bad as eating a slice of chocolate cake!  If you didn’t already know, I’m trying to drop some pounds.  So far I’m down 50 pounds and I want to drop a little bit more so I’m all about the healthier dessert options because going without anything sweet isn’t one of the easiest things to do when you are at a gathering and everyone else is dipping into the chocolate cake!  Well, it’s not for me which is why I’m going with the Red White and Blue Jello Fruit Salad recipe this year!  I hope you enjoy it too.
