As if your day couldn’t get any better, we’ve partnered with Kitchen Crafted® today to bring you the easiest and most delicious 4th of July dessert bar Chai Fruit Kabobs with a Coconut Chai Dipping Sauce. Kitchen Crafted’s line of products includes no fillers, no preservatives, and no unpronounceable chemically-enhanced ingredients invented in a lab. Instead they’re filled with fresh ingredients sourced from around the world. We are using their Love My Chai BLND® today, but their whole line of spices and spreads is so delicious! You can check out the availability near you here. (For my Texas friends, they recently launched in select H-E-B® stores and are offering a buy 2 get 1 free promotion all of next week!)
If you’ve been a part of this community for some time now, you have likely already heard me go on and on about my love for the 4th of July. For the better part of my twenties it was my absolute favorite holiday of all of the holidays. I love the patriotism, the celebrating of the best of America. I love getting to be outdoors with friends and family and I love that it’s a holiday centered around fresh, yummy food al fresco! Now top all of that off with fireworks. You see my point?!
If you’re hosting or in charge of dessert next week, I promise these 4th of July Chai Fruit Kabobs are a total crowd pleaser that can be prepped ahead of time and are super easy! I like setting them up as a build-your-own-fruit-kabob bar. People can choose their own ratio of fruit to angel food cake and marshmallows, plus it’s less work for you. The Coconut Chai dipping sauce is gluten free and can be made with coconut yogurt instead of cow’s milk yogurt so it’s also a dessert that’s inclusive of a lot of different dietary preferences.
