Summer Time Snack with Frozen Grape Pops

This is our new favorite Summer SnackFrozen Grape Pops are the perfect treat for a hot summer day. Even though you’ve probably frozen grapes in the freezer before, these pops prevent fingers from getting sticky or wet by adding a lollipop stick to the mix.

Supplies:

  • Grapes – any color or size, washed
  • Lollipop sticks – preferably 8 inches long, but any size will do. You can buy these at Walmart, or any cake/candy supply place. (We tried these with popsicle sticks and they are too wide for the small grapes.)

Instructions:

First, wash your grapes and dry them as best you can with a paper towel. Then pick about 6 grapes per 8 inch stick. Using the hole side of the grape, push your grape onto the stick. Go down about 1-2 inches from the bottom. Now pile the rest on.

Place your grape sticks in a freezer safe plastic bag. It’s best to wait over night for really good frozen grapes, but we could only wait till the afternoon. Even then, they were cold, mostly frozen, and delicious.

NOTE: these are large frozen bites, please watch your little ones as they eat their snack for choking. If you need to, cut these in half or even fourths to make them smaller. They will still freeze up great!

I was gobbling them up faster than my kids were! This super healthy frozen treat is giving me the fix I need to stay away from too much ice cream. Perfect for a summer day and a cool sweet treat!

  1. I made these but without the stick. They still taste good, but the stick makes them more enjoyable.
    Tips for Better Recipe
    – Use red, purple, and green grapes
    – colored sticks
    – for toddlers, use toothpicks instead of sticks
    – if you have a sweet tooth, sprinkle some sugar on top

  2. I have been eating frozen grapes for a few years now, do not even like them without freezing now. Hooked on them. I got my co workers hooked on them also as we have a full sized fridge/freezer at work and they are great for cooling off on a hot day. We just fill a cup with frozen grapes, no mess, easy to eat and work at same time. Just don’t give them to your dogs no matter how much they beg. Reading about toxins in grapes/raisins that can cause renal falure. Sad too, to think something that is healthy for us and our kids is so bad for our pooches. Mine are begging as we speak,but can’t take chances on my fur babies.

  3. SP – They are still really good even when thawed. I think they’d be great for lunches and you wouldn’t have to put them on a skewer, just in a bag. It would keep them cold. Good thinking.

  4. I just wanted to add a reminder to those of you who mentioned bamboo skewers … I use these for a lot of food and art projects with my 6 year old. But I have a clean pair of toenail clippers that I use to remove the sharp points. Just poke it down in a trash can or large bowl before you cut so you aren’t sending splinters flying across the room.

  5. Yes Marie I REALLY did break a tooth biting into a frozen grape…fortunately it was side tooth and I was able to have it bonded…no more frozen grapes for me…too expensive…lol

  6. Maggie – Did you really break a tooth? I’m so sorry. We actually have been eating these unfrozen on a stick as well and they are just as good. I hope your teeth are doing better. Thanks for the warning.

  7. OOps…broken tooth from biting into these…be careful…not so good for everyone…furthermore why frozen? Grapes are good at room temp. Beats a high dentist bill.

  8. Just found your blog and I love it! Did the grape things this afternoon with my 6 year old. We used bamboo skewers since thats what we have around. Frozen grapes are so much more fun on a stick! THanks! And congrats on the new baby!

  9. Sarah – Great idea to put a frozen grape in a summer drink.

    Gabreial – I’m so glad you tried them and liked them. A very easy treat.

    Michelle – I’m happy you found me off Zakka Life too!

  10. Alright, ever since I seen this post that was actually a shared post on my Google Reader, I had to try it. I made these with my three year old last night and I’m happy to report.. I LOVE them. It’s so simple, and yet so good. I’ll be making these for our trip to the beach. Maybe just freezing them on a sheet without the sticks for easier removal.

    Thanks so much for these!

  11. You probably couldn’t do this with kids, but I think I’ll make a batch of those on bamboo skewers for my next (adult) party. How much do you want to be people immediately stick them in their drinks? =D

    Simple ideas are always the best ones! Thanks!

  12. Thanks for the great comments everyone. These are a healthy treat and we have been gobbling them up.

    And as CB has said, do be careful for choking. We actually like to eat them a little soft and they are super easy to bite into!

  13. I teach preschool. Grapes are known as a major choking hazard for children 3 and under. Frozen, it seems the choking hazard opportunity would be worse. Just be careful. Don’t leave your children alone while they eat this snack and know the Heimlich maneuver!

  14. I am so glad you wrote about this. I accidentally found out that I like frozen grapes last year when I discovered my mother’s older fridge was set too high.
    Well I looked in the fruit drawer (which was colder ) and the grapes were pretty much frozen.
    They were good!

  15. Ok this is the best idea ever, my daughters love love love grapes, I am going to do this tomorrow!! My dogs also used to love frozen grapes, until I found out that grapes are really horrible for dogs :(

  16. Fabulous idea! I love frozen grapes but never thought to do it this way. I can’t wait to get some grapes to try this out. My kids will love them. THANKS!

  17. I am not lying when I say that I was guiltily snacking on a bowl of ice cream as I read this post. Thanks for the timely, healthy summer snack suggestion! We will be putting it to the test this afternoon!

  18. Yum! Another grape idea! (Sorry, I know that’s so lame). I too despair of the endless popsicles and icecreams so this will make a good change.

  19. Don’t you love these! I’ve been making them for years! I was even going to show some of the girls over at another site I write for how to make them. How funny! Great minds things alike . . . and apparently snack alike too!

  20. Oh, I never thought of using lollipop sticks!!! Thanks for the great idea. And I agree with Grandma Jani….maybe we will do some with other fruit and berries for the grownups. Yum!

  21. We’ve always loved frozen grapes, I’ve just never thought of putting them on a stick like a popsicle. Great idea! I even have tons of lollipop sticks I haven’t used in years. Thanks.

  22. Great nutritional summer snack ideas for the kiddies! Actually, I think Dad and I will make some. We could use other fruits as well; although the grapes are definitely colorful. Darling pics of our grandbabies!!!
