Friends, I don’t know about you, but I am SO READY for summer time! As I write this, we are on the verge of experiencing yet another week of rain in the San Francisco Bay Area, and to be completely honest… I am over it. This winter has been one of the coldest that we’ve had in a really long time, and I am ready for some sunshine!

But as I’m dreaming of warmer days, I’m busy in my kitchen whipping up ALL of the recipes in preparation for the summertime. The first one? These Sour Patch Strawberry Frozen Grapes.

Frozen grapes are one of my absolute favorite snacks. They’re sweet, they’re crunchy, and when tossed in the right seasonings, they can also be sweet, salty, or sour. If you’re looking for a recipe on the more savory / salty end, then you will love my Frozen Tajin Grapes.

But, these Sour Patch Strawberry grapes are perfectly sour and sweet, just like the candy that they’re named after. And, one of the great things about this recipe is that it is also incredibly easy to make. All you need are a few ingredients, and in just a few simple steps, you can have a delicious and healthy snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Plus, it only requires three easy ingredients!

3 Ingredients to Make These Delicious Frozen Grapes

  • Grapes: Of course, you need grapes in order to make this recipe! Any type of grapes work well, but I especially love using green grapes. The tanginess of the green grapes adds the best flavor to this recipe.
  • Lime Juice: A squeeze of fresh lime juice not only allows the Jell-O mix to stick to the grapes, but it also adds the perfect amount of sour flavor to make these grapes shine!
  • Strawberry Jell-O Mix: This is the key to getting that delicious, sour, strawberry flavor! Of course, you can use traditional Jell-O if you’d like, but to make this recipe a little healthier, I like using a better-for-you Jell-O brand, like this one by Simple Mixes!

Next, pour the strawberry jell-o mix over the grapes and toss them until they’re fully coated in the mix. Place the grapes into the freezer for 20-30 minutes, until they’re frozen.

An Easy Way to Make These Grapes Plant-Based

Contrary to popular belief, this recipe is NOT plant-based, as is. Why? Because Jell-O container gelatin, which is an animal by-product and therefore not suitable for vegetarians or vegans.

If you want to make this recipe plant-based-diet friendly, simply, swap out the Jell-O mix for a plant-based alternative, like this one!

How to Make This Simple & Easy Snack Recipe

To make these grapes, start by washing and drying your grapes thoroughly. I love to use a fruit and veggie wash to ensure that my produce is really clean, like this one!

Next, place your washed grapes into a bowl and squeeze your lime juice on top of them. Then, pour your Jell-O mix on top of the grapes and toss until the grapes are fully combined in the lime juice and Jell-O.

Finally, place your grapes into the freezer for 20-30 minutes, until they’re frozen. Don’t skip this step! Once they’re done, eat them and enjoy! Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to one week, or in the freezer for up to one month.
