Frozen Grapes

3 Oct

The best things in life are simple… The best food is the simplest…

With the heat rising close to 100F every day here in PR (yes, even in early October…) sometimes all you crave are liquids and fruits. Sometimes all you want is to drink your way through the day to avoid heat exhaustion. Sad to say… I know about heat exhaustion and it’s the WORST feeling in the world.

Something I learned about many years ago at one of the fanciest weddings I’ve been to is the goodness of freezing grapes. I had them first as a palate cleanser in between courses. The presentation was spectacular in a bowl made from ice and everything. Too bad I was not into this blogging thing then or I would certainly have pictures for you to also admire. But those grapes stayed in my mind, waiting for a good time to re-appear in my life.

I’ve told you how in Costco you need to buy fruits in BULK. Or at least it seems like that for someone without a hug family to feed every night. So I decided I would freeze half of the green seedless grapes I bought for a future use because I was afraid they would spoil if I left them all in the fridge. Besides, my fridge can’t hold that many huge containers of food at once…

One stifling night… I was soooo “salapastrosa”… those days you need to shower about 4-5 times to feel more comfortable. I felt like snacking… but what???? And I remembered those grapes in the fridge!!!!!! They’re amazing!!!!

It’s like a very natural ice pop or bom bom. Just serve yourself a few grapes in a plate and munch the heat away…

Hope you like this idea as much as I do every night it’s too hot to snack on a pizza…

    I absolutely love frozen grapes to snack on and I love your picture as you can even see the little ice crystals on the grapes- nice shot!

    This was my standard snack at my daughters volleyball games. Frozen grapes and frozen watermelon. Nothing better to beat the heat!

    Have some frozen grapes with your kids instead of popsicles. They are an excellent snack.

    I’ve never had frozen grapes before, Maddy, but they sound amazing! Even though we are having 50 and bellow degrees here in Seattle, I will definitely be giving these a try. Thanks for sharing, xoxo.
