Introduction: Grapesicles


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

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

Use these little grapesicles with some fruity dip;
put them in your drinks to give your guests an icecold and pretty coctail;
decorate your desserts with them;
take them with you on a summer picknick;
share them in the car with your children;

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



Enjoy!

Love, Sanne

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

    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.
