2 cups Frozen Cherries
2 cups Sprite
4 tbsp Lime (juice)
2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 bottle Bottle Dry Red Wine
It’s almost cherry season again and I can hardly wait to make my Cherry Red Wine Slushies. This is by far my favorite time of year, because the farmers markets are soon to be bursting at the seams with fresh fruit.
And this is about the time that I will stock up on all those seasonal fruits so that I can make all kinds of things. I also like to freeze as many fruits also, so that I can enjoy throughout the year.
I like to enjoy this drink on the weekends, it’s refreshing and very good for you too. Did you know that one cherry has 3 grams of fiber, which aids in digestion, lowers cholesterol, controls blood sugar and can help with weight loss.
Also cherries are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, protein and iron so eating these often is a smart thing to do. So why not pair them with some red wine too?
Red wine, which has flavonoids in it has proven to be heart healthy so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The type of red wine you use is all about personal preference, so please go ahead and experiment with your favorites.
I would love to see pictures of you enjoying your Cherry Wine Slushies below. Enjoy!
Note: Wanting to use fresh cherries vs frozen? Just add more ice cubes.
