What’s the quick & easy way to make frosé?
Unlike other recipes, you *don’t* have to wait 8+ hours for an entire bottle of wine to freeze in an ice cube tray or in a shallow dish.
You don’t even have to prepare anything in advance (other than having the ingredients in your fridge!)
THIS recipe literally takes TWO MINUTES, start to finish!
Throw 2 ingredients (wine and frozen strawberries) in your blender. Blend it up and it’s ready! SO EASY, right?!
Major Time Saver:
I used organic frozen strawberries from Aldi to save time on prep: having to wash, cut, and freeze the berries myself. (AND they’re usually cheaper than the fresh organic strawberries! Score!)
No Sugar Needed
After I came up with my shortcut frosé recipe, I was curious what conventional recipes looked like. So I researched a few…
And you know what EVERY recipe included? SUGAR of some kind.
But what I found is you *don’t* need to add any sugar to have a DELICIOUS frosé.
Since I didn’t add any ice or other ingredients, there’s no need for sweetener. The strawberries and wine add plenty of sweetness on their own, imo (and I even used a semi-dry rosé!)
“But does it need sweetener?”
If you DO want your drink sweeter (OR you end up with berries that are tart) there’s a healthier way to sweeten without sugar: monk fruit! 🙂
My favorite thing for sweetening drinks is these monk fruit drops (I use them in all my smoothies and my daily cold brew coffee!! SO GOOD).
They’re also on Amazon. You can check them out here.
If you don’t have monk fruit drops, alternative sweeteners are:
- 1/2 to 1 tsp granulated or powdered monk fruit
- 3-5 drops stevia
- a tiny pinch of pure stevia extract
- 1/2 tsp light colored honey or pure maple syrup (for non low-carb)
*Always taste and adjust to your desired sweetness :)
“What kind of wine do I use?”
My recommendation is a semi-dry (not too sweet) light to medium bodied rosé.
But use one that you like the flavor on its own. It comes down to personal preference. There are literally hundreds of different brands of wine, each with their own flavor profile.
Note: If you really want the rosé flavor to come through, pick a medium body (stronger flavor) wine because some of the flavor will be be diluted.
If you can, try to get clean, organic wine no added sugar or additives. Thrive Market has a great selection of clean wines that I’ve been wanting to try!
“Can I use different fruit?”
YES, you totally can! I tested a few different berries and they all worked beautifully.
Blackberries, raspberries and blueberries all pair wonderfully with rose, so feel free to use whichever berries you like!
I haven’t tried frozen peaches, but I have the feeling those would go well, too.
Add a splash of lemon juice or orange juice. Watermelon? Pear? They all sound amazing to me! Do some experimenting. Customize it how you like.
“How can I lower the carbs?”
This recipe is already lower carb than conventional recipes. But you can do a few things to to lower the carb count even more, if needed:
- Be sure to use a dry rose wine, which has a lower amount of sugar in it.
- Replace some of the strawberries with ice cubes. However, this will decrease the sweetness, so you’ll need to add some monk fruit drops.
- Anything can be reduced in carbs by simply eating *less* of it. Reduce the serving size, reduce the carbs. 🙂
Drinks For 1, or For 6!
This recipe makes one serving, but you can easily double, triple, etc for entertaining.
I love mixing up different cocktail recipes at home for my husband and I after the kids go to bed. BUT he usually likes different drinks than I do (he’s not into wine! crazy, right? lol), so making single servings is the perfect solution for me!
So you can use the recipe as-is to blend up one delicious frozen drink for yourself, OR multiply the recipe to however many servings you need.
One bottle of wine will make about 6-7 servings of frose, so plan accordingly if you’re having a party 🙂
