There are SO many different flavors of jello. When picking a jello for this recipe, you want to pick one that meets the health needs of your family. Jello brand has at least 8 different sugar free flavors. If you choose a red jello, it does stain fingers a little bit, so beware of that.
My go to jello is Simply Delish, this brand is sugar free and dye free. We don’t eat food dye in our house because of the effects on behavior. If you are unfamiliar, check out this article to see why you should ditch the food dye. Simply Delish brand has multiple flavors as well.

How To Make Fun Frozen Jello Grapes
Now that you know all the different combinations you can choose from, you need to know how to make these yummy Jello grapes.
It’s so simple, like really really simple.
-First, remove the grapes from the stems.
-Wash them thoroughly.
Here’s how I wash my fruit.
Mix 1 part vinegar with 3 parts water in a large bowl.
Place the grapes into the bowl.
Let sit about 5 minutes.
Transfer grapes to a colander and rinse.
Now your grapes are clean!
-After you have washed your grapes, leave them wet and put them into a large zip lock bag.
-Pour the jello into the bag.
-Shake it all around to coat the grapes.
-Remove the grapes from the bag and place onto a plate or cookie sheet and pop them into the freezer.
-Let freeze then enjoy. You can keep these in the refrigerator if you prefer. The jello does not stay on as well this way, but they are still delicious.
Instead of the bag you can also roll the grapes around in the jello one by one. My kids really love doing it this way, especially licking the extra off their fingers. This way coats the grapes evenly, it’s a little messier but fun!
This grape recipe is perfect in the summer on those hot days. Fun Frozen Jello Grapes would also be a great dessert or snack to bring to a party. You can mix and match different flavors and have rainbow grapes! 🙂
