Frozen Fruit Salad recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Frozen cantaloupe? Frozen grapes? Frozen banans? I had to try it. A while back, my sister mentioned to me that she had frozen some cantaloupe and loved it as a snack.

I froze some cantaloupe overnight and then gave it a try. I let it thaw on the counter for 20-30 minutes prior to serving it. My boys absolutely loved it!

The cantaloupe was so successful; I decided to freeze some grapes too. I’ve frozen grapes for smoothies for years, but I’ve never eaten them that way. We all enjoyed these frozen grapes.

I let them thaw on the counter for 20-30 minutes prior to eating them and they were great. Still chewy and icy in the middle, but not hard little rocks.

After seeing how well each of those fruits turned out, I went ahead and sliced some bananas and stuck them in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Sure enough, delicious that way as well, although we ate those immediately. The bananas thawed pretty quickly.

I happily tossed the remaining fruits together and made a quick breakfast fruit salad for my boys. They ate this with Cinnamon Spice Soaked and Baked Oatmeal and they both told me it was an awesome breakfast.

My oldest son informed me that it tasted “like ice cream, but with a fruity flavor.” I wouldn’t necessarily describe it the same way, but I did enjoy it.

I had heard of freezing grapes for snacks, but never tried it. What else am I missing out on?? Please tell me if there are other frozen fruits I should try!

    My girls like to eat frozen grapes, too. This is a good idea, I have one banana left that I might have to freeze now. I bet frozen watermelon and strawberries would be good too. The other good thing about doing this is your fruit will last longer!

    My daughters also eat frozen french fries off the tray – I always tell them yuck, but then I figure it won't hurt them so – whatever:-)

    ECL – Frozen cookies are even more dangerous around here than room temp ones. I found out the hard way several years ago. Chocolate chip pudding cookies straight from the freezer are way beyond addicting!

    TBD – If only that worked for cookies and me!

    Anne – I'm a complete freak about textures and food most of the time. I can't even describe why certain textures bother me so much, but they do. However, frozen fruits totally worked for me. I wouldn't let them thaw much at all though.

    I am addicted to frozen raspberries and blueberries (two fruits I don't care for thawed out). I add the frozen blueberries to my cereal/granola and it keeps the milk ice cold. I also gnaw on frozen strawberries and peaches as a snack. My freezer is full of frozen fruit – id be lost without it for snacking, breakfasts, sweet cravings and smoothies.
