Patriotic Themed Berry Ice Cream Cones – Memorial Day 2021

Today, Monday, May 31, 2021, is Memorial Day. It’s a federal holiday in the United States.

The purpose is for honoring and mourning the U.S. military personnel who have died

 in the performance of their military duties.

This holiday is observed annually by Americans on the last Monday of May.

Made a quick and easy dessert using the Patriotic colors of red, white & blue.
It’s refreshing and involves a healthy dose of fruit.

Here I used strawberries and blueberries.


You can use wafer cones or sugar cones.

Top off with red, white and blue Sprinkles for a Patriotic theme.
