Hooray for July 4th weekend! A long holiday weekend filled with sunshine, friends and feasting is just what I need. And at the center of many July 4th festivities is: food!..
..Delicious, yummy, beachy, picnic-approved, poolside, summertime food to be exact. There are so many vegan recipes that remind me of this holiday. Red frosty drinks, juicy meatless burgers, summertime salads and cool desserts.
Celebrate Independence Day with a vegan feast! I hope my 4th of July recipe ideas inspire you to add some spunky vegan flare to your holiday weekend. Or go all in for a totally vegan feast. Your vegan spread (think vegan cole slaw, watermelon frosties, Daiya pepperjack portobello burgers & mocha coconut milk ice cream root beer floats) will put those hamburgers to shame.
See my menu..
A few quickie notes! these recipes are just a few of my picks. Be sure to peruse my complete Recipe Index for even more ideas. And ps – be sure to vote for me as Jamba Juice Ambassador of WOW! You can vote once a day until July 13th. And check out my re-vamped “About Kathy” page – and Twitter background. 🙂
