Summer Wine Smoothie Recipes

Updated on March 27, 2011

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.

      When we got married, the only "electrodomestic" he and I retuesqed was a Vitamix, but nobody gave it to us so we boughtone ourselves!After a couple of months, we looooove our VM. We've done daily shakes, our own raw almond butter, soups, sauces, salsas it's so versatile! I even made up my own potato garlic soup recipe among many other creations, so it even makes you be creative in the kitchen while staying healthy. LOVE IT!

      That picture looks awesome, will definitely try it out, I hesitate drinking wines directly but once I know it tastes good, I can try them out. The above recipe I will definitely give it a shot. Thanks. Cheers. :)

      Wow, sounds like a great "stealth" way to get a buzz! :-) We'll try this this weekend, along with the 3-finger 2BC Chard.
