You can’t beat Grapesicles for a healthy and frugal snack during the hot summer months! Kids and adults alike love these frozen treats.
A few years ago a friend introduced me to Grapesicles. I was surprised how much I liked them! It feels like a treat, sweet and succulent, but it’s just frozen fruit. This summer I made up a big batch and started feeding the kids I know. Every kid who had them loved them, a 100% approval rate! One kid told me it was like an entire Popsicle she could put in her mouth all at once. As far as I’m concerned this is a huge snack win.
I have been buying them for 98 cents a pound this summer. Popsicles cost more for what, sugar water? Here it is supposed to be over 100F tomorrow! If you expect a hot 4th also, pop some of these in the freezer. Your overheated company of all ages will be glad you did!
I wash my grapes carefully and let them dry completely. Any bad grapes should be picked off. The rest stay on the stem and go into a Ziplock bag. Freeze until solid.
To serve take a scissors and cut sections off and hand them out. I looked around online (a dangerous thing, I know!) and saw that some people shove these on BBQ skewers before they freeze them. I love food on a stick too but if you are serving them to kids on the young side I think a sharp stick is less than genius.
