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 23 of the way. You want to leave about 13 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.
