Summer Wine Smoothie Recipes
Beat the Heat with a Wine Smoothie!
A few years ago, I tried my first wine smoothie at the New York State Fair--it was the perfect relief from the muggy heat. All you need is some fruit, wine, and a blender. Add a few fancy glasses, garnishes, and fun friends for a great summertime party.
I'm providing some recipes for smoothies I've come up with, but you can definitely experiment. If you come up with a great new recipe, be sure to share it with the rest of us in the comments capsule below!
Tropical White Wine Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1 cup frozen pineapple pieces
- 1 fresh banana
- 1-1/2 cups white wine
In a blender, mix until smooth. For a zing, use a bit less wine and replace with lemonade or limeade. This refreshing drink will send you buzzing through summer.
Rad Berry Red Wine Smoothie
- 2 cups frozen raspberries
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1-1/2 cups red wine
Combine in a blender and mix until smooth. For a creamier smoothie, add more yogurt.
You can also try other ingredients, like substitute the yogurt with a fresh banana, or try using other kinds of frozen berries.
