I have a new post up on the Honest Company blog today just in time for the 4th of July: All-Natural Fruit Gummies! These fruity snacks are made with whole watermelon and blueberries, with a middle layer made from coconut milk. They may look hard to make, but they are actually really quite simple and most of the time involved is while they sit in the fridge–so you can do something else like go see a parade!
When I was a kid, we spent most holidays like the 4th and Memorial Day with our neighbors and their kids. We'd go to the town events—the bike parade where we got to dress up our bikes in streamers was a favorite!—and we'd share a meal at one of the neighborhood houses. And there was always jello. Back then in the 80s, the jello was either in the form of a "salad", which was molded and typically included sour cream and pineapple (and was mint green), or jigglers. These are more similar to the latter as they are easy to pick up and nibble. But they are made with plain gelatin and fruit, so they skip over the artificial colors but keep all of the fun.
I hope you enjoy the long weekend with your family—complete with a few special treats!
