Cool Down Your Summer With A Winesicle

WinePopsicles_AEveryone loves an ice-cold pop to cool down the summer with. But for adults, sometimes a sugary treat won’t do. But fear not, grown ups, because there is finally an ice pop for you: the winesicle. By blending fresh fruit, yogurt and wine, the perfect summer treat can be found right in your pantry. And if not, a bottle of cabernet sauvignon by Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi is the perfect red to brighten up this icy treat.

Yield: Six 3-ounce ice pops

Red Layer
2 cups halved, hulled strawberries
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi cabernet sauvignon

White Layer
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp heavy cream
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 Tbsp lime juice

Blue Layer
2 cups blueberries
½ cup blackberries
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 Tbsp lime juice

  1. For the red layer, place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Fill the ice pop molds ⅓ of the way and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. For the white layer, blend ingredients until combined.
  4. Remove the molds from the freezer and fill each another ⅓ of the way, freeze until firm, about another 30 minutes.
  5. For the blue layer, blend ingredients until combined.
  6. Remove the molds from the freezer and fill each another ⅓ of the way. Leave about ¼-inch of space at the top of the mold.
  7. Freeze until solid, about five hours.

You may have extra fruit puree, depending on the size of your berries, but save that for a pie, ice cream topping or a sweet drizzle for your morning pancakes.
