Grape sorbet is a healthy, naturally sweet, and almost instant dessert made by blending frozen grapes.Ever since I was a little girl, frozen grapes have been one of my favorite desserts. My girls love them now too. I was telling a friend the other day that grapes become incredibly sweet and the texture inside is like a little bite of sorbet. Then I started thinking... what if I blended these little sorbet bites into an ice cream-like treat! I wasn't sure this was actually going to work. I tossed some of our frozen grapes in the food processor and blended away until there were not any more grape skin chunks. Delicious! But would the kids go for it?

They both LOVED it and couldn't believe I was letting them have ice cream when they had already had ice cream at their school fundraiser. Let's just keep the healthy part to ourselves, shall we? I'm so excited this worked so well. Grapes are in season now, so you should be able to find great organic grapes at a good price. Let me know how you like this!
Yield: about 3 cups of sorbet, depending on amount of grapes
- 1 bunch grapes, removed from stems and frozen
- Place frozen grapes in the bowl of a food processor. Process until as smooth as possible, scraping down the sides (with processor off!) occasionally. If processor will not turn once sorbet is thick, add a little water, one tablespoon at a time. This took me about 4 minutes.
- Serve immediately.
