Frozen Grapes

frozen grapesI've started to notice that various types of grapes have become available at my local supermarket, and that means that grape season is on its way! I absolutely love grapes -- I think they are both the perfect sweet snack as well as the perfect desert (when frozen, we'll get to that in a few).

Not only are grapes tasty, but they are *very* good for you as well! Grapes are full of vitamins like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and Folic Acid. They are also full of antioxidants and flavonoids which help protect our bodies from things we don't like such as aging, heart disease, neurological disease, diabetes, cancer, etc.

If you've never had them, frozen grapes are an amazingly sweet, healthy snack. Eating them is a lot like eating candy (not kidding!). To make frozen grapes, simply buy a bunch of any type of seedless grape that you like, remove the individual grapes from their stems, wash in a strainer, and the bag them in single serving ziplock bags. Place the bags in the freezer for at least a few hours, and then enjoy one serving at a time!

Enjoy!

I looooove grapes! Specially when they are frozen!
Frozen grapes sound so good right now, specially now that it's getting warmer here in LA.

After lots of experimenting with fruit, i've discovered that most fruits taste really good when frozen or cold. Like frozen mangos tastes like sorbets/ice cream. and cold bananas are delicious!

My dad eats frozen grapes practically everyday, and adds them to his protein shakes :-)

I've tried the frozen grape thing. I must be the only person who isn't impressed by it. To me it's just a grape.. but colder! lol

Laurel said...

The first time I had a frozen grape was when my frige went haywire and froze everything! They were really good, and my kids loved them too!

BTW, I received my snack foods gift today and it is wonderful! Thank you so much!

OMG. LOVE frozen grapes! This is one of my favorite treats this summer. :) I'll have to experiment with other fruits.

Let's be honest here. Regular old room-temperature grapes are just OK. Nothing to get excited about. In my whole life, I never tried frozen grapes until this year. On a whim I just experimented with a bag and popped 'em in the freezer. Superb! Fifty-one years old, and nobody ever told me about frozen grapes. Now I realize I've led a deprived life. Of course, now I've become a frozen grape addict.

Thanks! This would make a wonderful low calorie desert when I'm craving something sweet.

As a child, I learned to freeze them in a bit of lemon juice. It gives them a little bit of a sweet and sour taste and is very refreshing.

a reccomendation for grown ups, puncture a fairly deep hole with a narrow point/neck and soak the grapes in limoncillo, then freeze. The alcohol will not fully freeze but it nonethless leaves it's mark! Delightful

I had a iced grape was when my fridge went haywire and froze everything! They were actually good, and my children loved them too

Anavar said...

I never thought of freezing grapes. It really should be seedless. I'll try once to freeze grapes and see what happens :)
