How to make this wine smoothie
Put your ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth!

A real crowd pleaser
This wine smoothie can be made with just the fruit and the wine, but i ended up adding almond milk and ice. i liked it with just the two ingredients (and wow that was easy) but adding the milk and ice made it…um…AMAZING. perfection. we were taste testing…and it was actually a little tough to not just finish it right then and there. but the husband of a blogger knows that no food or drink is consumed before pictures are perfected! (pat eats many luke warm dinners these days after waiting for me to finish taking pics! poor guy)
Impress your friends on a hot, summer day with this delicious little number. So simple to make. As well as Valentine’s, this really is the perfect drink for a long, holiday weekend. Just be careful, they go down a bit too easily.
What is chocolate wine?
If you’ve never had chocolate wine before, it’s a mix of chocolate and red wine so basically, it’s a wine liqueur. There are types that are heavy on the wine with notes of chocolate…and then there are types that are heavy on the chocolate with hints of wine. this one was heavy on the chocolate. Which…is that ever a bad thing? I think not. Plus it works perfectly with the berries in this wine smoothie.
The tart flavor of the raspberries really comes through, but you can mix it up and try different fruity combos. You could try blackberries for a lightly ore mellow hit, maybe go for mixed berries – get creative with your berries! Cherries and peaches would work a treat too!
- You can omit the almond milk and ice, if you want a stronger, thicker tipple.
- Experiment with different berries and fruits, lots of great combinations out there!
- Add a touch of lemon juice if you want it less sweet.
- Serve with some frozen berries and a straw.
