frozen grapes – the perfect summer treat

Just put your (clean) grapes in the freezer! It’s suggested to dry them off after washing so they don’t stick together in the freezer – but ain’t nobody got time fo that, especially when we don’t use paper towels in our house (gasp, weirdos, i know). I always have a thousand ice cube trays lying around, so last time I made some, I just stuck one in each little cube holder thingy. Pretty genius if ya ask me? Then when I want a nice treat, I just grab a hole tray and enjoy!

A lot of people like them frozen because:

-They have a different consistency (a nice icy chew, kinda like ice cream in a weird way?)
-It’s slower to eat them (I can eat 100000s of normal grapes in 5 minutes like nobody’s business. They are also expensive. Here, you have to enjoy slowly!)
-Some say they taste a little sweeter, but this may just be because you’re eating them slower and enjoying the grapey taste :)
-A very healthy snack!
-PERFECT for the hot summer!

Go freeze some!

    I started eating frozen grapes a couple years ago, and I love them!! They’re like tiny, healthy popsicles! :)

    LOVE! We must be kindred spirits, although I grew up eating them in the Midwest.

    They are oh-so-good in smoothies, too! So is zucchini – the plants are so prolific you have to be creative or you’ll have a hot mess of old squash and fruit flies burying your kitchen.

    I know this is super old, but I think you’ll like it, if you haven’t tried it yet… use them to chill wine. I have to have ice in my wine, but it waters it down (unless I’m drinking really fast, but I don’t do that… ever!) It keeps the wine nice & cold, doesn’t water it down, and they look cool hanging out in the glass.
