This refreshing and simple summer snack is a great choice on a hot summer day instead of ice cream. It only takes a handful of these frozen baubles of bliss and your yen for sugar will be satisfied. If you’re concerned about the glycemic spike, enjoy five or six of these sweet gems along with a handful of almonds or cashews to balance the sugar with protein and fat.
The sugar content in the grapes prevents them from freezing solid. They’ll be pretty hard, depending on the type of grape you use, but probably soft enough to bite. I like to hold one in my mouth until it softens slightly before biting it.
You can control how much frost or ice forms by controlling how much water is left on the grapes when you place them in the deep freeze. The more water, the icier or frostier they’ll be.
Red or green seedless grapes — as many as you want to prepare.
