Make Your Own Fizzy Fruit

A few weeks ago, Alys and I made fizzy fruit (carbonated fruit!) using a few things and some fresh fruit. The fruit is delicious and has a small bite to it from the carbonation.

The fruit is 100% safe and contains no additives at all except carbon dioxide which is an inert gas used to make soda fizzy.

What You Need

  • Plastic airtight bottle (I used nalgenes)
  • Dry Ice (solid carbon dioxide can be bought by the pound. Call your local grocery store to check availability)
  • Fresh Fruit (grapes and pineapple were the best so far!)
  • Juice (optional)

Step 1.

Cut the fresh fruit into small pieces. This increases surface area of the fruit to allow the carbon dioxide gas to enter the fruit more readily.


Step 2.

Fill the bottle 3/4 of the way with your fresh cut fruit.


Step 3.

Cut a small piece of dry ice about the size of 1-2 grapes. Drop the dry ice piece in the bottle. Make sure you don’t put too much or else you will create a dry ice bomb (youtube dry ice bomb to see), which is very dangerous. This is very important!

Cutting dry ice is fun, but make sure you wear gloves

Step 4.

Seal the bottle VERY tightly and store for 10-12 hours to let the carbon dioxide enter the fruit.

Decided to put the bottles in the cooler but they can easily go int he fridge too

Step 5.

Open the bottle (listen for the depressurization!) and enjoy your fizzy fruit!


Fizzy Pineapple!

Step 6.

Play with any extra dry ice you have!

This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
