June is National fruit month and you know how we love a celebration, so we decided our charcuterie board of the month obviously had to be a fruit charcuterie board.
And let me warn you, this is not a normal fruit charcuterie board, this is truly a bubbly fruit charcuterie board….with a bubbly fruit dip and what do we typically do with fruit in the bubbly world…..mimosas, of course!
Fruit Board Ideas
Summer fruits always play an important part in any outdoor party, BBQ, picnic, etc. Not to mention, fruit pairs so well with sparkling wine!
And if you’ve been around here a while, you know that my favorite way to enhance your bubbly is with frozen fruit. Now we didn’t use frozen fruit on this board even though we thought about it. I do think frozen fruit would be a nice touch especially if this board will be outside for any length of time.
The fruit choices especially in the summer are endless. For this fruit charcuterie board, we grabbed some of our favorite fresh summer fruits:
- Champagne mango (because, bubbly LOL)
- Oranges (honestly, only so that people could make a traditional mimosa)
And even though we had 2 trips to the store, we still managed to forget the blueberries. And as we continue on with summer you better believe we will be adding cherries, melons, and even plums.
These are just a few fruit board ideas, there is no right or wrong. We also included some fun toothpicks to making dipping into the bubbly fruit dip easier. And this bubbly fruit dip is a must make regardless if you create an entire fruit charcuterie board….trust us!
Bubbly Fruit Dip
- 8oz Heavy Whipping Cream
- 3 T Powdered Sugar
- 1 T Sparkling Rosé
- 4 oz Whipped Cream Cheese
- 4 oz Vanilla Yogurt
- Using a hand blender, immersion blender or cup blender, combine heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and sparkling rosé. Blend until stiff peaks form.
- In a small bowl, combine the whipping cream, cream cheese and vanilla yogurt. Mix well with a whisk.
- Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or as long as overnight.
- Transfer into individual cups or smaller cups to scatter throughout your fruit charcuterie board.
Note: We used sparkling rosé because we thought it would add a nice flavor with the fruit, but we have made this whipped cream with sparkling almond and brut. Any of these would work well for this dip.
Fruit Charcuterie Board + Bubbly
When we were discussing the fruit charcuterie board, I laughed saying, I think the only way I consume fruit is in a smoothie or in my bubbly.
And since our whole goal is to create something that pairs well with bubbly, it’s only fitting that we serve this fruit charcuterie board with bubbly. We liked the cans, but we’re also big fans of popping a few bottles of bubbly and letting people create their own drink.
When we were pairing the fruit with bubbly cans, all I could think of was adding a piece of fruit directly into the can like you add a lime right into your bottle of Corona. Obviously easier with splits of sparkling wine, but I think it’s ingenious!
So whether you’re creating a “mimosa” (yes, adding a piece of fruit to a glass of bubbly is our idea of the perfect mimosa) or dipping your fruit into the bubbly fruit dip, we know this will be a crowd pleaser at your next event.
Bev Sparkling Wine Cans
And I have to talk to you about these Bev cans. Just as it’s our mission to normalize celebrating everyday moments, it’s also our mission to normalize bringing cans of bubbly to your favorite outdoor occasion.
We were so excited to try these Bev cans as they are flooding our Instagram (by the way, if you’re not following us, do so now!). So I was super excited when they showed up at my door.
We will write up a full review in another post, but we really enjoyed the sparkling white wine and the sparkling rosé wine was good when we poured it into a glass. Either of these would be great with a piece or two of fruit as well.
In the meantime, if you want to try Bev, use code BUBBLYSIDE20 for 20% off any order and get it delivered to your door just in time for your next event.
