Strawberry Bellini Prosecco Pops

Bubbly and refreshing, these Strawberry Bellini Prosecco Pops are the perfect way to cool down and enjoy a cocktail, popsicle style! 

Cocktails and Mocktails for May Celebrations

Since May seems to kick off the bridal showers, graduation parties and other festive celebrations, it’s fitting that this month’s Recipe Redux challenge was to share a cocktail or cocktail recipe.

I’ve been seeing these 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), like these Summer Strawberry Popsicles or Cucumber Spa Pops. 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 bellini’s heavy on the sparkling wine in our house, so I only added about 1 tbsp of strawberry puree for each popsicles. 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. Which actually made them a little slushy-like, which I didn’t mind at all. It reminded me of these amazing sounding Lavender Peach Wine Slushies from Hinger Thirst Play. There is just so many yummy things you can do this summer with frozen booze!

      Thanks Marisa! Just had to make sure I clearly label the popsicles in the fridge so my kids don’t think they are for them!

    This might be what happens in heaven. I love anything bubbly. A popsicle is 100% logical for the summer months. Processco goes so well with strawberries too!
