This week I hunted down a recipe and made these for our recipe review, because I thought that we could all use a nice cold treat. I did not follow this exact recipe, because I improvised a little. Enjoy!
|Ingredients. Feel free to use any kind of Jell-O you want!|
|First I took the grapes off of the vine. Please note that I started with fresh, not frozen grapes.|
|Next, I washed the grapes and drained them really well.|
|Then I put the washed grapes into a large Ziploc bag.|
|Next, I added the dry Jell-O powder to the Ziploc bag.|
|I tried to sprinkle the powder over as many grapes as possible.|
|Close your Ziploc bag|
|and shake it until the powder has been evenly spread over all the grapes.|
|After that I let out all the air in the bag before putting it in the freezer.|
|Put the grapes in the freezer|
|until they are completed frozen.|
|Once they are frozen that's it, you're done! Feel free to take them our and enjoy them whenever you like!|

3 cups grapes
1 small box Jell-O Sugar-Free Gelatin Dessert (any flavor), dry powder
Place frozen grapes in a quart sized zip top bag, add Jell-O powder, zip bag and shake well. Be sure that your frozen grapes are right from the freezer because any condensation will cause clumping. I place a small amount in ramekins as treats for the kiddies (well all right I confess, me too!) and quickly return leftovers to the freezer.
Serves: 6; PointsPlus+: 2
Just a note when you are counting your pointsplus+: Technically grapes are zero pointsplus+ and technically Jell-O is zero pointsplus+. However, when I put these into Weight Watchers recipe builder it calculated the nutritional facts for both of these ingredients and it came out to be 2 pointsplus+ per serving. Either way it is a pretty healthy and refreshing snack option.
