Beautifully photographed food and beverages inspire me. They inspire me to make new recipes for my family and give me so many ideas that our meal plan never gets boring.
The same is true of beverages ideas. I can’t count how many new beverages we’ve had this year alone, all because of my love of mouthwatering pictures.
According to Wikipedia, a Sangria is a beverage originated in “Spain and Portugal which normally consists of red wine, chopped fruit, sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy”.
I don’t drink liquor so I’m going to omit the Brandy in my recipe and instead of sugar, I’ll use Sweet’N Low® zero calorie sweetener. Two packets should be enough to provide a hint of sweetness without the extra calories from sugar.
- 1/2 cup of red wine
- 1 cup of apple juice
- 1/2 of an apple, sliced
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
- 2 packets of Sweet’N Low®
- 1 small lemon, sliced
- Thinly slice the apple and lemon and add them to a 12 oz glass.
- Pour in the blueberries and (2) Sweet’N Low® packets.
- Pour the wine and apple juice over the fruit and stir to dissolve the Sweet’N Low®.
- Chill for 30 minutes and enjoy!
I loved how light and refreshing my version of a Sangria turned out.
It’s was just what I needed last Friday after a long week. This is an easy low calorie recipe that can be whipped up in advance or when I want some sweet and fruity to drink.
