This grape ice cream breakfast bowl uses the best of this season’s produce to make a super delicious, totally healthy breakfast bowl full of juicy fruit and berries.
Don’t be fooled by kids going back to school. It’s still, officially, late summer. That means the most abundant fruit and produce of the year. Peaches, pears, apples, raspberries, and juicy grapes are available right now. I found this basket of seedless Concord grapes tucked away at my local grocery store. The full carton was less than $6.00 and seeing as grape ice cream is my favorite after chocolate, I had to get them.
Omgosh, this is yummy. It’s ice cream that tastes like grape jelly. Only Concord grapes, seeded or seedless, will give this flavor. If you can’t find them, use regular grapes or whatever berries are available to you. Raspberries would be as good ice cream.
I got to talking to an elderly lady in the apples while shopping. She was smelling all the apples and said she was sad that so many heirloom varieties are gone. I agreed. We both decided a variety called Red Free was the best smelling, so I got a bag of those to go with the grapes. They were also a bargain at $.99 a lb. A couple ripe pears, and yellow and white peaches, a few raspberries, pecans, and some cacao nibs for good measure and I had a beautiful breakfast bowl for less than $3.00 or so.
Use whatever fruit you have available, of course. This is a flexible recipe.
Grapes, especially the Concord variety, are full of flavinoids and antioxidants. They’re thought to be beneficial to heart, brain, and immune health.

In a high speed blender, puree the frozen grapes, banana, and plant based milk until smooth and creamy and like firm-ish soft serve ice cream. Add stevia while blending if you like it sweeter.
Top with fruit, berries, pecans, dried cranberries, and cacao nibs.
This recipe is delicious as is, but is flexible. Use the fruit and berries you have on hand.
