Little healthy icy sweet treats, sounds good doesn't it? Grapesicles, just a fancy name for frozen grapes actually, come in their own convenient packaging and are ideal to take with you on a picnic or to use as fruity ice cubes  :)

Update: 'Grapesicles' is accepted in the frozen treats contes, if you like this instructable I would really appreciate it if you considered voting. Thanks :)

Step 1: What to Do

Picture of What to Do
Ingredients
  • White and red sweet seedless grapes
  • Make it extra delicious with a fruity sauce of jelly and lemon or lime juice
     
Materials
  • Freezer safe bag or box
  • Freezer
  • Optional: Satay skewers or cocktail sticks

What to do:
  1. Remove the stems from the grapes and wash them
  2. Put the grapes in the freezer and wait
  3. Done :)

Small tip: When you want to put the grapes on satay skewers for a nice presentation, do this before you put the grapes in the freezer. When you try this with frozen grapes they will most likely spit in two.



Step 2: Different Forms of Presentation

take them with you on a summer picknick;

or just take a large bowl and eat them all yourself :)



Enjoy!

Love, Sanne

I love doing this. But I put it in milk and it freezes milk

I'm not quite sure what you mean by this. Can you explain it further for me?

simple and awesome.

I hope you enjoy them! Over here we have had a couple of tropical day's so they were gone in no time!

My mom started freezing grapes about 40 years ago (weight watchers recommendation). They taste amazingly sweet frozen. I told my twins they were candy when they were toddlers lol. Still a favorite in our house :). Super cute on the skewers. Thanks for sharing.

You're very welcome!
A friend of mine has got her five and two year old's to believe dried apricots are candy, more believable than 'olives are candy' like my aunt tried to do ;)

Thank you :)
Letting them out of the freezer a couple of minutes before you'd like to eat them really helps.
