I’ve been seeing prosecco popsicles all over the internet recently and immediately was drawn to the idea of a frozen champagne popsicle. Last summer I was hooked on making healthy popsicles for the kids (and adults alike). I’ve definitely stepped up my game though with these adult-friendly Strawberry Bellini Prosecco Pops.
Strawberry Bellini Prosecco Pops — How To
To create the strawberry puree, I placed fresh strawberries in the food processor and blended until smooth. I wanted to strain some of the seeds out, so I poured the puree through a fine mesh strainer before adding to the popsicle molds.
We like our bellinis heavy on the sparkling wine in our house, so I only added about 1 tablespoon of strawberry puree for each popsicle. If you want your popsicles heavy on the strawberry flavor, I would add more. To make it extra special, I also added a fresh strawberry slice to each popsicle mold before freezing.
Slowly add the prosecco (or Champagne) and fill each mold 2⁄3 of the way. You want to leave about 1⁄3 of space in each popsicle mold as the popsicle will expand a bit once it freezes due to the bubbles.
It took about 5 hours for the popsicles to completely freeze. I checked them after 3 hours and they were still a little soft in the center. They were actually a little slushy-like, which I didn’t mind at all.
