Skinny White Sangria

Here is my solution to a low calorie summer beverage for the holiday weekend:

Skinny White Sangria
(Thank you Bethenny Frankel)

8 peaches, pitted and sliced
4 white plums, pitted and sliced
1 pound green grapes, cut in half
3 bottles Prosecco (an Italian sparkling wine)
One 12-ounce can Fresca or diet lemon/lime soda
One 12-ounce can club soda

Below is a picture of my version.  I didn't exactly copy Bethenny's genius recipe but basically I put a bunch of fruit in some white wine with a bit of Fresca.  It turned out AMAZING!



  1. Nice!! Will definitely try. It looks so delicious. The only thing is cutting a pound of grapes in long will it take!? :-) Love the "profile" picture of you raking beans, BTW. You look totally "belong"... Love your blog, Sarah.

  2. Hi Sarah! I'm so glad you left your info at today's spin class - love your blog! I have been reading a lot of your entries. :) I read the one about the pushups every question is: what if you can't do even ONE full correct pushup? I can do the knees, but not the real ones yet. Do I just keep doing the knee ones until I can do the real ones? :)
    OK, can't wait to read more! :) See you next class.

  3. Daisy!!! That may take awhile! Haha!

    PS - It turned out amazing!


  4. Jane - Like you I started not being able to even do 1 push up. Now 6 months later I can do 10 real pushups. I do 20 every night starting with as many real ones as possible then I drop to my knees. Eventually I will work my way to 20! Thanks for the great question and please continue to come to my class!

  5. Two of my favorite words; Skinny and Sangria! This is something I MUST try! :) Thanks for sharing!
