What you’ll need for this refreshing Mixed Berry-Lemonade Wine Slushy

  • Frozen mixed berries: The berries adds a beautiful light sweetness to this drink and rich, vibrant colors
  • Wine: Moscato is my favorite wine, so that’s what I used for this recipe. You are welcome to use prosecco, Riesling, chardonnay or any white wine of your choice.
  • Lemonade: Lemonade adds a lovely citrus note and makes the drink extra refreshing.
  • Ice: Ice is optional and I recommend adding it a little bit at time in order to get your preferred slushy consistency.
  • Sugar: If you have a sweet tooth, then feel free to a touch of sugar to the slushy.

Fun variation of this drink

If you want to make this drink as show in the photo, then you’ll need to do the following:

  • Separate the berries by color. For the drink, I used a mix of blueberries, strawberries and cherries, so the I put the blueberries in one pile and the strawberries and cherries in another pile.
  • You’ll essentially be making two different slushies; one red slushy and one blue-ish slushy. Blend the red berries together with the lemonade, wine and ice, rinse the blender, then follow the same steps for the blueberries.
  • Decide on which color you would prefer to have on top. Pour the bottom color first. Next, take a spoon and slowly pour the second drink on top of the first drink to create layers.

Non-Alcoholic Drink

Feel free to omit the wine and use only lemonade. The drink will still be just as delicious and refreshing. It’ll be great for your kids to enjoy and for guests who prefer not to have an alcoholic drink. It’s a tasty alternative for everyone!

A refreshing blend of berries, lemonade and wine. This is a quick recipe that’s perfect for a hot summer day!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups frozen mixed berries (I used a blueberry, strawberry and cherry mix)

Instructions

  1. Pour the berries, lemonade, ice cubes, and wine into a blender and blend until smooth.

Why is this ice cream called “no-churn”?

This ice cream is called “no-churn” because there is no traditional ice cream churning involved in an ice cream maker. This makes no-churn ice cream super easy to make because you don’t have to worry about over churning your ice cream. Over churning ice cream will create an ice cream with an extremely icy texture.
