IS CHERRY WINE SLUSHIES HEALTHY
Red Wine in moderation is healthy.
And well we all know cherries are packed full of fiber and antioxidants so that is a given.
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 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 for this one!
