How to Make Frozen Grapes: 5 Steps (with Pictures)

Frozen grapes are delicious, low in calories and fat, and can make even ice cream lovers mouth water. They are perfect for children (and young adults with a young soul) on hot summer days and can be prepared in a snap. Go to Step 1 to start preparing your frozen grapes in no time.


Step 1. Wash the grapes.

It's always a good idea to wash any fruit before eating it. This helps to remove pesticides that are dangerous to your health. Place the grapes in a sieve, bowl or plate and dry them with a paper towel. Allow them to dry as much as possible, letting them rest for at least 15 minutes.

Step 2. Place the grapes on waxed paper, baking sheet or plate

You can also use some container with a lid. Spread the grapes as much as possible so they don't touch each other and prevent them from sticking together when they freeze. Even after drying them, if there is any moisture they can turn into a giant block of fruit.

  • If you want the grapes to be sweeter, you can sprinkle them with a little sugar or sweetener before putting them in the freezer.
  • If you want something creative, you can make "frozen grape skewers" by putting the fruit on a skewer, or several, before freezing.

Step 3. Freeze the grapes for at least 4 to 5 hours

The more grapes you are using, the longer it will take to completely freeze them. You can freeze them overnight too, but don't leave them for too long in the freezer as they can lose some of their flavor and texture.

Step 4. Remove the grapes from the freezer

Put them in a bowl and prepare the snack.

Step 5. Enjoy frozen grapes

Remove the grapes from the freezer and consume them pure. If you want something more different, try the following ideas:

  • Serve the grapes as ice cubes in a refreshing glass of water or in drinks such as a mimosa.
  • Place them in yogurt or rice pudding to add a special touch to the snack.
  • Sprinkle them with sugar for a super sweet treat.


  • Use frozen grapes to keep your wine glass chilled from getting watery.
  • Purple grapes have more nutritional benefits and freeze better than green ones, but some people prefer frozen greens. Try both varieties.
  • Avoid using parchment paper (be eco-friendly) and set the baking sheet aside. Just shake the grapes well to make them almost dry and place them in a closed bag. Place them flat in the freezer so they don't clump together and form just one or two layers. They freeze well like that. After a week they lose nutritional value, but they won't last all that!
  • If you want to make an Italian grape slushie, beat a bowl of grapes to a puree and then freeze for a few hours.
  • Wash the grapes and let them dry naturally on a paper towel for about a day. Remove them from the curls and place in a closed bag.
  • After drying the grapes, wrap about 6 to 7 in plastic wrap (do this with all the grapes in the batch). Place the packages in a ziploc bag. This works great!
  • Try freezing purple and green grapes and then mix them in a bag. It's a great healthy treat.
  • Wash the grapes, put them in a closed bag and keep them safe. When you want to eat, pass them to a bowl.
  • Try putting all the grapes in a big bag and freezing them that way for months. They don't stick together and last a long time.
  • Freeze for about two hours.
