Strawberry Riesling Smoothie

4.0 out of 5.0

Smoothies are an excellent way to cool down on a hot day or to serve for a Sunday brunch. The other day I realized that I was out of juice or milk and had to get creative! Luckily I had some Riesling leftover from the night before that I could use in their place!

The flavors in the apricots, lemon juice, and pineapple will compliment the flavors of Riesling. Pair with our turkey tacos or a light appetizer.

Strawberry Riesling Smoothie


  • 8 oz Riesling
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 c frozen yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 1 c pineapple chunks
  • 1 apricot
  • 1/2 c strawberries, hulled
  • 1/2 c raspberries


In a blender add Riesling, lemon juice, and frozen yogurt followed by remaining fruit ingredients. Blend until smooth. Poor into glasses and top with a slice of apricot or strawberry.

Substitutions and Tips

  • Substitute 8 oz milk or juice instead of Riesling for a delicious non-alcohol version of this recipe.
  • Pear or apple juice will compliment the flavors and aromas of Riesling but try lemonade on a hot day!
Yield: 2 servings
