What a perfect way to cool off! These delicious peach and blueberry wine slushies are pretty, refreshing and only take a few ingredients and a couple of minutes to make!
Super easy to make and really refreshing, these peach and blueberry wine slushies could easily become your new favorite. They are perfect for sipping and cooling down after a long day. You can make them single serve or make a large batch for a party!
I don’t know about where you live, but here in the midwest it gets downright stifling during the summer. I try not to complain too much about it so I can complain all I want about the snow and ice and bone-chilling temperatures.
Once the cold causes me to lose feeling in my fingers and toes, it can take hours to get them back to normal. You know what I’m saying?
I figure I can’t have it both ways, so I save (most) all of my complaining for when it matters. But that doesn’t mean I like the heat and humidity.
We get the kind of humidity here where you feel like you have to squeegee your face just because you walked outside. Then there is the havoc it can play on your hair, but that is a story for a different day. The good news is heat and humidity are made much more tolerable with some cool drinks.
Am I right? Of course I am!
The best part about these is they take next to no effort. That is my kind of summer recipe. There is hardly anything to it at all.
A few quick ingredients and a minute or two in the blender and Voila! you have a nice summer treat.
I used our Magic Bullet, which made it extra easy. These cold and fruity drinks are perfect for sipping on while grilling, or even better with your toes in the water.
This recipe is also super customizable. I used a nice fruity moscato and frozen blueberries and peaches.
You can use whatever white wine you have on hand (even that bottle you have been avoiding because it isn’t your favorite, it will probably work here!)
If your fruit isn’t really ripe and sweet or your wine is on the dry side, you way want to add just a bit of sugar before you blend it up. I feel like frozen drinks should be on the sweeter side, but ours didn’t need the extra boost of sugar.
Our sweet mint is going gang busters right now, so I garnished with a bit of that. A nice slice of peach would also make a fun garnish.
How are you guys beating the summer heat? And even more importantly, what are your favorite uses for peaches?
- 1 cup frozen peaches
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 1/4 cup fruity wine, like moscato
- 1-2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
- In a blender, mix together 1 cup frozen peaches and 3/4 cup of wine. Add up to a tsp of sugar if your fruit isn’t especially ripe or your wine is dry.
- Blend until mixed and smooth. Set aside.
- Blend together the blueberries, the remaining 1/2 cup of wine and sugar if using.
- Layer blueberry slushie and peach slushy in glasses and enjoy immediately.
