Tuesday Tip: Freeze grapes for a healthy snack

It’s summer time at the HQ and along with all the fresh fruit in season, summer also means cool treats.  One of my very favorite cool treats is frozen grapes which is something I just got turned on to last summer.

I love grapes but they always seemed to spoil faster than I could eat them.  This was frustrating to me because I hate throwing out food and because fresh produce isn’t cheap.  Then I came across a blog (I can’t remember which one!) where frozen grapes made frequent appearances.

Genius idea!

And I started freezing my grapes and haven’t looked back.  I wash the grapes and pull them off the stem, toss them in a freezer bag and store the bag in the freezer.  Whenever I want a snack, I dump some out in a bowl and ta-da, frozen healthy treat for a hot summer day.

They also last forever this way and there’s no more worrying about them spoiling before I have a chance to eat them.  To me, they taste like a fruit sorbet with a bit of a chew because of the grape skin.  This is easily, hands-down, one of my favorite snacks.  You can even plop some in a drink to help keep it cool instead of ice.

If you like grapes and are looking for a new cool treat, give frozen grapes a try!

  1. I’ve seen many people freeze grapes, and read that it’s a good idea, but I’ve yet to try it. I worry that the cold will hurt my teeth trying to bite into them.

  2. This is one of our favorite things to do with grapes, they just seem to taste better too. We take them out of the freezer and let them sit a bit so they aren’t too rock hard.
