Frozen Cantaloupe in Strawberry Wine
While this is no doubt a fantastic and easy fruit dessert for summertime, it’s also great year round as a palate cleanser or healthy, light dessert. Incredibly easy to make, the natural sweetness of the fruits and vibrant colors make this a gorgeous dessert that will impress your family and friends. To make this recipe kid-friendly, just substitute the red wine with sparkling grape juice.
1/4 large ripe cantaloupe (cold), scooped using melon baller
8 strawberries, hulled
1/3 cup red wine (use one that you like to drink)
Fresh mint leaves, thinly sliced for garnish
Place the cantaloupe balls into a large container and freeze for at least 3 hours or overnight (if overnight, thaw for 10 minutes before using). Remove from freezer and place into one large punch bowl or individual serving bowls. Set aside.
Using a blender or food processor, pulse the strawberries and red wine until smooth. Pour over the cantaloupe. Sprinkle the mint leaves over the cantaloupe before serving.
