Frozen fresh fruit! Who needs high-calorie and artificial sugar-filled frozen fruit bars when you can transform whole fruits into wholesome sorbet?

If you have more of a sweet tooth, you may want to try freezing red or black grapes. Green grapes are a popular pick for those who enjoy the sweet and tangy flavor. The grapes keep their crunchy character while the inside becomes a smooth sorbet surprise. Whether you are in need of a refreshing snack after a tough workout or craving a cool snack on a hot summer day, frozen grapes won’t disappoint!

Ingredients
or2 lbs or 6 cups of seedless grapes, red or green or black or a combination
Preparation
1.
Rinse the grapes thoroughly
2.
Place a 1/2 cup of grapes in in 12 zip log bags with a good seal. Don’t worry about fully drying the grapes before bagging them—a nice pat with paper towel will do the trick. You don’t want the grapes to be so wet that they will all freeze together, but a little moistness will give them a nice frosty coating after freezing
3.
Let the grapes sit in the freezer overnight to allow for an even freeze
