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.

For another terrific fruit salad option, save this recipe for the Red White and Blue Salad. We all love 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!

    I make frozen grapes ALLLLL the time, especially during the summer. They are a great healthy snack and very familiar to a popsicle according to your taste buds.

    Frozen grapes was an old Weight Watcher trick. They are also great served with wine – yum! I've been freezing peaches and put them in everything. I also like to flash freeze strawberries and blueberries so I can grab a few here and there. Love frozen grapes! Haven't tried cantaloupe but I will now 🙂 Have a happy Wednesday.

    Wow! so the bananas didn't turn brown? Every summer we picked wild blackberries in the forest and keep them in thefreezer for smoothie but I saw my kids snack on them, I never thought it could be tasty. i thought it would be too hard. But now I change my mind, in the cereal is agreat idea.

    As a fruit grower I often freeze oversupplies of fruit..anf free flowing..which I use in late autumn and during the winter.It is great and clean way to reserve them:)

    Looks Yummy! Recently my dad, who is on a diet, foisted off a box of fig newtons on me. I guess he figured better my waist than his. Well, to stop myself from scarfing the entire box in one sitting, I decided I'd be really clever and put them in the freezer. This worked well until I discovered that frozen fig newtons are DELICIOUS! Or at least the were delicious… I fear they didn't last long after that discovery was made. That's what I get for trying to outsmart myself!

    Love frozen fruits too! They are great for smoothies! Unfortunately, we can't freeze stone fruits…I think they will be mushy when they are thawed.

    The image of the bowl filled up with frozen fruit looks just stunning. What a wonderful way to preserve fruit and make a colourful statement at the table. Good thinking, Mary!
