I’m a bit addicted to wine smoothies. Last summer I was introduced and I have been hooked ever since. This Wine Smoothie with Mango and Pineapple, is one of my very favorites.
I’m sure my friend Isabel is laughing. There were many an evening last summer that we were working together on the phone while I was sipping away at my delicious wine smoothies. For whatever reason, it made her crack up. Probably due to my obsession, but whatever… I can’t help it. You don’t understand…
They’re good. I mean, really good.
And they can be changed up with different fruits and with different types of wine. Sometimes I use just plain red or white wine and add a little fruit. Other times I buy a flavored wine. This time I went with a Strawberry Wine just because I thought Strawberry, Mango and Pineapple were good together. Yes indeed.
They’re SO refreshing and are wonderful served on a hot day at the pool, or with a fabulous BBQ meal. (They go great with burgers!)
I consider them a rather fun way to cool off. Just sayin’…
Oh, and did I happen to mention how easy they are. And they only have two needed ingredients. I have three, but that’s just because I wanted two kinds of fruit. Oh, and a blender. You need a blender. I use this one.
It’s the Oster BRLY07-B 7-Speed Fusion Blender. I’ve had this baby for about 3 or 4 years now and it does everything I want it to do, and can even juice softer fruits and veggies. But that doesn’t matter here. It’s one heck of a great smoothie maker.
- 1 bottle (750ml) of white wine
- 2 cups of Dole frozen mango chunks
- 2 cups of Dole frozen pineapple chunks
- Throw it all in a blender together and blend until smooth or the consistency that you like.
- Serve with fresh fruit slices or add maraschino cherries for some color.
If you want to make it a little sweeter, feel free to add a bit of honey, agave nectar or sugar. I don’t like it a whole lot sweeter, so I usually just keep it plain.
Also if you want it to be creamier, add some yogurt. You can use plain, vanilla or even a flavor. Enjoy!
