What you will need

Frozen watermelon chunks and white wine to make watermelon white wine smoothie.

These wine smoothies are the easiest recipes EVER!! All you need is frozen, seedless watermelon chunks and a sweet white wine. I used Moscato d’Asti, but feel free to use your favorite wine if you find Moscato to be too sweet.

By using a sweet wine we can avoid adding sweeteners like sugar or simple syrup.

What is Moscato?

Moscato (pronounced mo-ska-toh) is a sweet Italian wine with medium to low-acidity produced in Italy from Muscat grapes. It is typically thought of as a dessert wine with a hint of fizz, but can be found still or bubbly. It is sweet, perfumed, and bursting with fruit flavors like peach, apricot, and orange.

Muscat grapes have high residual sugar but low acid, which contributes to Moscato’s signature sweet taste. Moscato generally has a pretty low alcohol content, around 5-7% which makes it perfect as a dessert drink, blended with fruit or served as a spritzer.

  • Pink Moscato – is usually a white moscato that is mixed with a splash of Merlot. It is still or slightly sparkling and a favorite of U.S. and Australian wine makers
  • Moscato d’Asti – This is the most common type of Moscato wine sold in the U.S. It has a light, sweet flavor, slightly sparkling, and made from the Muscat Blanc grape. It is also served as an aperitif or dessert wine pairing.
  • Red Moscato – very similar to Pink Moscato, this wine is usually a blend of White Moscato and other reds such as Syrah and Zinfandel.
