Guess who’s back to swim instructing already? You guessed it! And here I thought I was getting a month off with the whole class debacle. I was told 4 hours before my regular scheduled private lesson that I could come back because I was “scheduled” to take the class. When I got there, I heard a few instructors quit and they had no one to cover. I wonder why!
The Mom for my private told me how much her daughter loves working with me and was so unhappy with the sub. Apparently, they didn’t both to explain to her why I wasn’t there. Aye…yai…yai…
Either way I’m happy to be back working with the kids. Someone told me a long time ago that when you help other people, it’s helps you and I could not agree more.
I’ve been through a lot these last two years (more than I’ve even disclosed on the blog) and the things I’m doing now i.e. getting educated as a nutrition practitioner and becoming a swim instructor have been therapeutic for me. Not to mention it forces me to leave my house. If not, I’d probably end up a cat lady. Although I don’t own a cat so I’m not sure what that would make me?
My time off lent me time to work on new recipes like these Greek Yogurt Frozen Grapes! I had been wanting to make them FOREVER and completely forgot they were in my freezer until last week when someone sent a huge box of frozen food and I was forced to clean out my itty bitty freezer and there they were!
So I got to work whipping up this super simple grapelicious snack! Seriously, these are so easy I was wondering if it was even legal for me to post this as a recipe. But I AM!
Okay so all you need are 3 easy ingredients to make these Greek Yogurt Frozen Grapes. Grapes, of course! Greek yogurt and your favorite seeds. I used hemp seeds because they’re my favorite, but chia or flax would work well too. Feel free to mix it up!
First, you insert the toothpicks into the grapes. I found standing them upright and pushing the toothpick through the hole where they’re plucked from was easiest. From there, you make yourself a little assembly line with a bowl of Greek yogurt and a bowl of seeds.
Then gripping the toothpick, roll the grapes in a bit of Greek yogurt and dunk into the seeds. Set on a baking sheet with parchment paper and freeze. Super simple and super tasty! It took me less than 10 minutes to assemble these Greek Yogurt Frozen Grapes.
The best part? They taste so darn good and after setting overnight in the freezer they held up to the heat! I thought for sure they would melt in this 120 degree heat wave we’re having. You better believe I’ve been munching on these frozen grapes all week long to stay cool! You can store them a plastic bag in the freezer to munch on for up to a month is what I’d recommend.
I love the combination of sweet and crunchy snacks and this is one you can feel good about eating. No additives, no preservatives or extra sugar. It’s a fun and EASY recipe that’s great for hot days. These would also be fun to bring to a party!

Insert a toothpick into the end of the grape that has a hole. I found it easiest to stand the grape and hold with one hand while I inserted the toothpick with the other.
Place Greek yogurt and hemp seeds in a separate bowls then line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Assembly the grapes by dipping into the Greek yogurt then immediately into the hemp seeds. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat this process for all the grapes.
Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours (overnight is best) then eat!
Store grapes in the freezer in a plastic bag for up to one month.
