Grapes - Frozen

Updated on June 2, 2015

Frozen Grapes

I am always amazed by how many people have never considered, conceptualized, thus never enjoyed these refreshing frozen treats known as Frozen Grapes.

A treat in which I now consider a necessary refreshment on a hot summers day.

Easier than making ice cubes. You simply place a batch of grapes into the freezer and use them when you wish to.

So simple is the reason why I have been amazed at the reactions from the people that I have suggested this simple treat to. They have never heard of doing such a thing. Their expressed fear that the grapes might explode like a frozen can of soda.

A flavorful, self contained melt, in your mouth frozen grape slush.

One which can also be used to brighten up a simple glass of water while providing the same function of an ice cube.

It started with the grape for me. It has evolved onto freezing berries, pear slices, peach slices, and melon balls. Yet it is the grapes that come in their own package that cuts down on any sticky messes.

So start freezing them up, and munching them down. Then maybe thank me in the morning if you are one of those who had never imagined freezing a grape before.

So deliciously practical is the frozen grape.

Enjoy!

      I've never myself had frozen grapes however when my children were teething we use to put them in "mesh" feeders and they were great to gnaw on.

      I guess as an adult I neer thought of eating them myself....I'll have to try them. Thanks for sharing.

      They are so yummy! Drop them in some wine for something tasty. They are also delicious with chocolate drizzled over them and then frozen. Such a short, but effective hub. Props! Up!

      This is an awesome idea, especially in this heat. It's less expensive to buy bulk, and when frozen, they don't mold on you. This is a great way to stay hydrated and get a refreshing treat w/o all the junk, because it's fruit, freshly frozen.

      It is a great idea, which I have never considered. I'm sure it's better than an ice-lolly because it's more natural, with less sugar etc. Thanks for sharing.

      My mother always had a bag of cut up frozen fruit in the freezer during the summers. Grapes, honeydew, cantalope and other soft fruits. It was so refreshing to just grab a handful to cool myself off and satisfy my need for a quick snack.

      Thanks for stopping by snoblet... I suspect any fruits can do.. Yesterday I cut into cubes a perfectly ripened Pear and froze it... It too was awesome!... Being 95 degrees here in Chicagoland yesterday made them all that much better.. But again, not like the clean natural packaging of a grape where I do not need to use some fork or spoon device in order to eat them without getting sticky... Advantage still goes to the grape.. *smiles*

      I just threw the grapes into the freezer to try this out. Sounds nice to have on a hot day as you said :) Can this be done with any fruits? I want to try longans too.

      Thank you Natasha! Thank you Dale! Thank you both for stopping in.

      Yep, individually naturally wrapped frozen little slushies... How can you go wrong.. And the only waste is the stem which is bio-degradable. *smiles*

      You're welcome Lucy!, and thanks for stopping by... I love the frozen berries almost as much as the grapes these days.. But it is the grapes that leave little mess behind... Maybe that is why I love them so.

      Thanks for your considerate recognition Patty, Billy, and Deborah!

      I know how much I appreciate the internal cool down that these treats have provided me. Better than a Popsicle, and better for you.
