Grapes are a seasonal fruit that are mostly grown in California in the United States. There are many different varieties of grapes, and they are usually available from May through January.

There are lots of nutritional benefits to eating grapes, including the fact that they are low glycemic and full of antioxidants. Besides just eating them out of hand, grapes can be added to smoothies or sliced and served in a salad. One of the most fun ways to use grapes is to make frozen grapes.

You might think that frozen grapes would be too hard to chew, but they are usually still fairly soft, even when frozen. If they do freeze solid, you can let them sit on the countertop for about 10-15 minutes before serving your frozen grapes.

Frozen grapes are a healthy snack that kids love to eat. You can cut the grapes in half or quarters before freezing to prevent them from being a choking hazard for young children. This healthy snack is:

  • dairy-free,
  • gluten-free,
  • vegan, vegetarian, and paleo.

Recipe Steps

You won’t believe how easy it is to make frozen grapes. But, there are a few tips I have to share with you.

Step One

The first step is to wash your grapes. This ensures that you remove any residual dirt or debris on your grapes.

The easiest way to wash grapes is to put them in a colander in the sink. Turn on the faucet and let the water run over the grapes to clean them.

Step Two

Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and remove the grapes from the stems. Place the grapes on the baking sheet.

Step Three

Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 2-24 hours. This will ensure that the grapes freeze individually, as opposed to one giant clump.

Step Four

Remove the baking sheet from the freezer and serve the frozen grapes. Or, transfer the frozen grapes to a zip-top bag for long-term storage. When you’re ready to eat the frozen grapes, remove them from the freezer and let them warm up for 5 minutes before eating.

Pro Tips

  • Check out the different varieties of grapes in the grocery store. There are specialty varieties including Cotton Candy grapes that have a delicious texture and flavor.
  • Buy grapes in season (May through January) for the best results.
  • Be careful about giving regular grapes or frozen grapes to young children who might choke on them.

FAQs

Can I use a blend of red and green grapes?

Yes, absolutely! Red and green grapes have slightly different flavors and sweetness levels, so a variety is great.

Do I need to buy organic grapes?

It is ideal to buy organic grapes whenever possible since they are on the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list of produce most often sprayed with pesticides.
