Sangria Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Sangria which belongs to the Beverages recipe category.
- 1-liter bottle of dry red wine?burgundy, merlot, or the like (You can
- use the cheap stuff!)
- cup (16 g) Splenda
- teaspoon orange extract
- teaspoon lemon extract
- 1 orange
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- Orange-or lemon-flavored unsweetened sparkling water
Pour the wine into a nonreactive bowl.
Stir in the Splenda and the extracts.
Now, you have to decide if you're going to serve your sangria from a punch bowl or put it into a clean old jug.
Me, I put it in an old 1-gallon (3.
8 L) vinegar jug, but I was taking my sangria camping.
If you're going to put your sangria in a punch bowl, simply scrub your fruit and slice it as thin as humanly possible.
Put it in the punch bowl with the wine/Splenda mixture and let the whole thing macerate for an hour or so before serving.
If you're using a jug, you'll need to cut your fruit into small chunks that will fit through the neck.
Force the fruit into the jug and then pour the wine/Splenda mixture over it.
Again, let it macerate for at least an hour.
When the time comes to serve your sangria, fill a tall glass with ice, pour in 4 ounces (120 ml) of the wine mixture, and fill to the top with lemon-or orange-flavored sparkling water.
Each with 6 grams of carbohydrate (assuming you actually eat all the fruit, which you won't?I'm figuring it's really between 4 and 5 grams), a trace of fiber, and a trace of protein.
