Green Grape Cooler
Need some heat relief? Beat sizzling,
summer temperatures with a fruit cooler
that will refresh yourself the healthy way.
It's naturally delicious, so give it a try!
You will need:
A cluster of seedless green grapes
What to do:
Take grapes off the stems and freeze
(preferrably overnight), then blend the
frozen grapes with some water on high
speed until liquified. Pour into a glass
and drink up!
If you want to be extra cool, make
some 'grape-sicles!' Blend unfrozen
grapes and a little water, then pour
into small, paper cups. Add a popsicle-
style stick and place in the freezer
overnight. Before eating, let grape-
sicle(s) thaw slightly for a few minutes
on the counter in order to remove the
'Way cool' as they say.....
Coolers can be made with a variety
of fresh, in-season fruit such as
strawberries, raspberries, black
berries, apricots, plums, peaches,
and more! So explore and discover
the endless possibilities of fruit coolers!
