Sharing is caring!

These Jello Grapes are the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Easy to make, with only 2-ingredients, and even easier to eat. You will love playing with the nearly endless flavor combinations and happy to have a go-to healthy snack that satisfies your sweet cravings.

This recipe was one of the very first on my site, originally published April, 10, 2012. It has since been updated to include fresh photos and helpful tips.

RECIPE FEATURES

  • Easy Snack: Two ingredients and less than 5 minutes of work.
  • Healthy: According to WW these are zero points. Although I don’t follow the plan and enjoy these as a family treat. Guilt free frozen dessert to serve my kid? Yes, please!
  • Family Favorite: We love creating different flavor combinations by using alternate Jello packets.

Hear me out, these are a MUST-TRY treat. Originally, I made these to serve to my kid as a snack when he was smaller. I’d slice the grapes into quarters, gotta avoid that choking hazard, toss them in jello and serve. The thing is I, like all parents out there, found myself eating his leftovers. And I LOVED these grapes with jello powder.

The flavor reminds me of Sour Patch Kids. First you get the tang and tartness of the jello powder, but that is followed by the sweet grape. It is perfection. I’ll tell you this much, eating an entire bowl of grapes makes me feel a heck of a lot better than an entire bowl of candy.

BEST JELLO FOR FROZEN GRAPES

While the ingredient list may be minimal, you can get REALLY creative with this recipe. Here is what you need to get started.

  • Jello: The dry powder. No need to mix this with water, like the box states.
  • Grapes: Removed from the vine and washed clean.

We really love the flavor of green grapes with lime Jello. It is a flavor match made in heaven. So if you are a newbie to this insanely easy treat idea, I suggest you start there.

HOW TO MAKE JELLO GRAPES

  1. Wash the grapes. Pull them off of the stem and toss them into a colander.
  2. Rinse them well. Don’t worry about getting them too dry since the water helps the jello to stick.
  3. Place your jello mix into a giant Ziploc bag. Add the grapes and shake them like crazy!
  4. Place them in an airtight container and put them into the refrigerator or freezer until chilled or frozen solid, typically 2 hours.
  5. Serve as desired.

FLAVOR VARIATIONS

While we stuck with lime jello for this recipe specifically, you can use ANY jello flavor and grape pairing. Here are a few go-to flavor options that we find enjoyable.

  • Red grapes + cherry jello
  • Black grapes + raspberry jello
  • Green grapes + watermelon jello
  • Green grapes + pineapple jello
  • Red grapes + grape jello

Should I freeze this recipe?

Yes or no. The choice to freeze these grapes once you have dipped them in Jello is completely up to you. We enjoy them both frozen and unfrozen. If you want more of an ice cream texture, toss them in the freezer. If you are going to eat them right away, serve them immediately.

Are Jello Grapes healthy?

These Jello covered grapes start with a fruit. Grapes contain mostly water along with healthy nutrients like potassium and Vitamin C. You also get a good dose of Vitamin K, which is always a bonus.
When you add Jello powder you are also adding processed sugar and artificial colour, which is fairly obvious by the neon bright grapes photographed. But you can opt for a low sugar Jello and you will get that same great flavor and keep them semi healthy.

Can I use other fruits?

Yes! We have tried diced strawberries and it was a HUGE hit. They taste equally delicious, although most other fruits do not have the same grape texture once frozen.

How do you store Jello Grapes?

The best way to keep this recipe is in an airtight container stored in the refrigerator or freezer. You could also use a ziptop bag.

How long does this recipe last?

When refrigerated, and stored in an airtight container, these will last 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator. Frozen grapes will last up to 10 months stored properly in the freezer.

I love these! I made these for St. Patty's Day, for my coworkers. They turned out great!! My boys love them, as well. It is nice to be able to give them something semi-healthy, and tasty since they both have MAJOR sweet tooths!

I actually have something similar, you take an apple, peel, core it and slice. Then sprinkle some strawberry jello on it place in refrigerator and presto! You have a snack. You can use sugar free jello too. I also have taken a fresh pineapple, cored it and cut chunks. I sprinkled strawberry jello, put it in the fridge and it will make a glaze. I use those frilly toothpicks and have a great snack for the pool, birthday and anytime. Thanks for the grape idea!

I just saw your link at TT&J' party and soooo glad I did. I was just looking for a healthy "cold" snack for my son for hot days. This is perfect! He loves grapes and the potential for different flavors of jello is awesome. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to pin this so I'll remember it.

Have a good weekend, Shasta
