If you haven't used wine in your blender yet you are not living your best life

Ever since our wine slushies literally broke the internet a while back, we have been on the hunt for more delicious (alcoholic) things to whip up in our blenders and Nutribullets. 

And just in case you are feeling a little fed up with all those healthy kale smoothies too (like; YAWN!), here are some far better things you could be making in your blender:

1. Moscato and Peach Slushie

One word: YUM.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (750ml) Moscato wine
  • 2 cups peach (fresh or frozen)

Instructions

1. Add the fruit to a blender and process until smooth. Pour the blended fruit through a strainer to remove any pulp or seeds from the juice, then pour the juice back into the blender. Add the wine and blend until fully combined. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and set them in the freezer until frozen. Pop the ice cubes out of the trays and store in a zip-top freezer bag until ready to use.

2. To make a wine slush: Add six or so ice cubes to a blender process until smooth. You may want to pour in a little extra wine to help blend the slush together. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

3. Zinfandel and Frozen Berry Slushie

This two-ingredient mix is about as easy as summer entertaining gets. Simply combine a bottle of Zinfandel with frozen berries, and blend!

Ingredients

1 bottle white Zinfandel (the pink wine)

1 cup frozen mixed berries<

Instructions

Puree the wine and berries in a blender. Strain the mixture, and then pour the mixture into a shallow dish.

Freeze for 30 minutes. Scrape the mixture with a fork. Repeat 3 times for a perfect slushy consistency.

Divide between 2-4 glasses, let sit for 5 minutes at room temperature to defrost, and then serve.
