Although as a kid I always chose ice cream over slushies, and as an adult I always choose margaritas on the rocks over the frozen variety, I’m currently crushing hard on wine slushies. A boozy fruity treat that cools you off and is super fun to drink… what’s not to love?!
I started off with my current favorite rosé wine, which is dry (I’m not a fan of sweet wines) and moderately priced. Feel free to use whatever rosé you prefer.
To the chilled wine, I added some frozen blueberries and a couple of these frozen pitaya dragon fruit packs. If you’ve never heard about, seen, or tried dragon fruit, let this recipe be your reason to do so! Naturally a vibrant hot pink color, and delicious without being cloyingly sweet, dragon fruit is a great addition to smoothies, and – as it turns out – wine slushies.
Blend up the three ingredients, and you’re rewarded with this gorgeous beverage:
Happy unofficial start to summer!
Blueberry Dragon Fruit Frosé (frozen wine slushie)
|Nutrition Information||Per Serving|
|Name||Blueberry Dragon Fruit Frosé (frozen wine slushie)|
|Prep Time||10 minutes|
|Cooking Time||0 minutes|
|Total Time||10 minutes|
- 2 cups dry rosé wine, chilled
- 2 (3.5 oz) packs frozen dragon fruit (pitaya) puree, preferably organic
- 2 cups frozen blueberries, preferably organic
1. Freeze the Rosé
Pour the entire bottle of rosé wine into a large ice cube tray and freeze until solid. This usually takes about 4-6 hours, so it’s a good idea to do this step ahead of time.
2. Blend the Base
In a blender, combine the frozen blueberries, frozen dragon fruit chunks, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and honey. Blend until you have a smooth and vibrant purple mixture. Taste and adjust the sweetness with more honey if desired.
3. Add the Frozen Rosé
Once your rosé ice cubes are frozen, remove them from the tray and place them in the blender with the fruit mixture.
4. Blend to Perfection
Blend everything together until it’s smooth and slushie-like. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a few ice cubes and blend again until you reach your desired consistency.
5. Serve and Garnish
Pour the Blueberry Dragon Fruit Frosé into glasses, and garnish with fresh blueberries and dragon fruit slices. Feel free to get creative with the presentation; the more colorful, the better!
Sip and savor the refreshing and fruity goodness of your homemade Blueberry Dragon Fruit Frosé. It’s like a tropical vacation in a glass!
