As I was planning my weekly ice cream flavor recently I decided to make something for Independence Day.

There are plenty of red, white and blue foods you can buy at the store.  But it’s hard to find one without food coloring.

This red white and blue swirl ice cream uses only real ingredients to create a colorful treat.

Raw cream, egg yolks and natural sweeteners are used as the ice cream base.  Then as an added bonus it has grass-fed gelatin to bump up the nutrition.red white and blue swirl ice cream 3

You can make it with dairy or without.  We made a batch of each so the whole family could enjoy it!

My kids love this fun, festive ice cream.  Not to mention the swirl is great plain!

There is no need to resort to junk food to celebrate a holiday.  Real food is good food.  And it can be just as colorful and flavorful.

This Independence Day enjoy a big dish of red white and blue swirl ice cream.

    Looks great!!
    And yes, while real food is awesome food, one must have the time to make it… Hence why I had to resort to “junk” food yesterday. So it’s not correct to assume there is no need to resort to junk food for a holiday. šŸ˜‰
