I am always looking for different dairy free and grain free snacks to have on hand for the kids. And for me too, of course! Frozen grapes are always a hit – I can’t seem to keep them in stock as they are a favorite to munch on. And it does take a bit of pre-planning, but not much.
I go ahead and wash the grapes thoroughly before sectioning them off into kid sized portions and sticking them in a baggie. The water that is left over from the washing often leaves a little icy crust on the grapes that are in the bottom of the bag, which makes them nice and crunchy. Then just pop the baggies into the freezer for a few hours. It is just so easy!
The grapes seem sweeter when frozen, which is really nice if you have a sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied. They are nice and chewy and are really just fun to eat. (Do not give them to young children however, as they could be a choking hazard if not chewed properly.)
This is also a great way to use up grapes that might be a bit to soft to eat fresh. They freeze up well and you will never notice that they aren’t perfect. I’ve even frozen grapes that have the seeds inside. They are just as delicious, and they are really good for you.
What other grain free snack ideas do you have?
