Homemade Grape Ice Cube Popsicles

In May we posted 5 grape popsicle  recipes and we made one of them - they were delicious.  Here is the video for making the grape popsicle recipe.  The children LOVED these.  There is no added sugar and they are only an ounce each in the popsicle trays.

What You Need

  • 2 cups of grapes
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • banana (optional)
  • ice cube tray (or other container for your popsicles)
  • popsicle sticks (or cake pop sticks)
  • food processor or blender

How to Make Them

The blueberries and grapes go in your blender or food processor.  Blend them all together so you have a liquid to pour into your popsicle containers.  Pour into ice cube trays or other container, add the sticks* and you're done!

If you're using ice cube trays for your popsicles, you may want to cut the sticks in half so the stick is proportional the the popsicle.

What are the bananas for?  For making the popsicle sticks stand up straight!

*If you use the banana method, do the banana slices and sticks first.

Involve the Kids?

If you want to involve the children in making popsicles they could add the sticks to the bananas.  Give them a measuring cup and let them scoop the liquid and pour into the container!

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on ChildCareInfo.com is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building ChildCareInfo.com.
