If you’re looking for a quick sweet treat, while still being healthy, look no further – these Honey Pistachio Frozen Grapes are just what you need. Just because you’re living a low-carb lifestyle, doesn’t mean you suddenly stop craving sweet things, amirite??
Well, this is where us low-carbers need to start being creative. The best way to do that is to make the natural sweetness of fruit work for you in more exciting ways, like this recipe. The frozen grapes give you a “popsicle” texture, with an added layer of chewy honey and crunchy pistachio bits! It’s perfect, and actually makes you feel like you’re having a real treat instead of just regular fruit.
Even though fruit is healthy, it still has a high sugar content and should be enjoyed in moderation. Treats from nature, you could call them.
What I love about this specific low-carb treat is that you can prepare it in pretty much 5 minutes. It takes no time at all. Pop them into the freezer for a couple of hours and they’re ready to enjoy. If you make a whole tray of them, they’ll probably last you a few days. So, whenever you need a little sweetness in your life, you just open the freezer and grab one or two.
Word of caution though, if you pop a whole grape into your mouth you are at risk for some serious brain freeze. I made that mistake only one time, and it was one time too many. Now, I either bite the grape in half or I let them sit for a couple of minutes after taking them out of the freezer. Either way, be careful! Brain freeze sucks 🙁
If you’re planning on being healthy this Easter weekend, you can pretend these grapes are little frozen easter eggs, because why not? (Haha!) Or give our Low-Carb Lemon Cheesecake with Pecan Nut Crumble. Either way, Happy Easter!
