Who says antioxidants have to be boring?? Not with these frosty delights!
Change up your wine drinking game and freeze it instead of pouring it into a glass! The red wine goes beautifully with the strawberries and a hint of vanilla. The beet juice adds a natural sweetness and beautiful, rich ruby color. If you can’t find beet juice, any other juice or water will work as well. Apple or cherry juice would work especially well.
Red wine is rich in the antioxidant, resveratrol which helps to neutralize free radicals in the body and free radicals cause premature aging so I think you see where I’m going with this. Antioxidants and anti-aging in the form of cool, refreshing, frozen treats! Too good to be true. Give these gems a try!
