Frozen Grapes: Healthy Diet Staple

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

I had never heard of freezing grapes until about five years ago. We had just moved into our present house and the back yard had grape vines. We had so many grapes that there was no possible way for us to eat them all. A friend of mine recommended that we freeze them.

Frozen Grapes

You don’t have to do anything special, you just wash them, pull them off the vine and freeze them in a ziploc bag. You can take them out later, defrost them to eat. You can eat them frozen (my favorite after a hot workout). You can put them in smoothies to make delicious grape shakes. Here is my recipe for that:

Grape Smoothie

  • 1 cup frozen grapes
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 2 tsps of healthy oil (I like to sneak it into treats so I don’t notice it)
  • 1 packet of Stevia (or Splenda) – optional (most of the time the grapes are sweet enough)

Put all the ingredients into the blender and mix on high until smooth.

1 serving – Approximately 250 calories – 5 WW Points – 2 fruit, 2 oil and 1 milk serving.

Without frozen grapes, eating healthy would be much more difficult for me. If you are having a hard time getting all your fruit servings in, get a bunch of grapes today and freeze them in one cup bags today. Then all you need to do each day is take out one bag and you knock out two servings in one punch.

    Yes, we have a vineyard and I have frozen grapes before. I have also bought grapes when they are on sale (because they can really get pricey at times). They are great to just eat frozen too!
