For as long as I can remember, one of my favorite summertime snacks has been frozen grapes.
They’re sweet, simple and perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day. I love grabbing a handful on the go or throwing a bunch in a bowl to enjoy after dinner during the warmer months.
About two weeks ago, as I was snacking on a handful of frozen grapes, I started thinking about how grape popsicles often taste nothing like actual grapes. The light sweetness from real grapes is completely lost in deep purple grape flavoring and I decided I would try my best to make a popsicle with real grape flavor. Since I had never made homemade popsicles before, I first had to buy a popsicle mold on Amazon. (I opted for this one and thought it worked really well!) Then it was time to pick out my ingredients!
Over the weekend, I made my first round of popsicles using fresh grapes, frozen blueberries, fresh mint and a splash of light coconut milk. Ryan and I ended up eating the popsicles in one sitting (two each) and I took that as a good sign!
They were so, so good and tasted like a summer treat when, in reality, I knew they were made with simple, wholesome ingredients.
I prepared another batch this morning and made sure to measure everything so I could share the recipe with you guys. I hope you love these popsicles as much as we did in our house!
These popsicles were created using fresh grapes, frozen blueberries, fresh mint and a splash of light coconut milk. Yum!
