Granita 6 Ways

April 16, 2018

Granita is kind of a no-brainer recipe when it comes time for the warmer months, but even on chilly days, this makes for a really fun practice in your home. The flavor combos are just about endless as you can see and its a really good way to use up all that fruit that’s on the tail end of its prime. Anyways, I had a blast cooking with my boy and can’t wait to do it again with another fun, colorful, flavorful, and interactive recipe! ENJOY!

Carefully add a dash of Meyer lemon zest to a glass bowl.

Use fresh Meyer lemons to juice.

Add hot water…

…and sugar.

Mix well, or until all of the sugar has dissolved.

Pour into a pan or freezer-safe dish.

Transfer to a freezer to set up until frozen solid.

Add blueberries to a glass bowl and give them a little mash.

Add sugar…

…and hot water. Mix well or until the sugar has dissolved.

Add to a food processor.

Blend very well.

Using a strainer, carefully pour into a pan or freezer-safe dish and transfer to a freezer to set up until frozen solid.

Add sliced watermelon to a food processor along with sugar…

…and hot water.

Blend very well.

Using a strainer, carefully pour into a pan or freezer-safe dish and transfer to freezer.

Carefully add a dash of orange zest to a glass bowl. Juice fresh oranges. Add hot water and sugar. Mix well. Pour into a pan or freezer-safe dish.

Transfer to the freezer.

Juice fresh limes into a glass bowl.

Carefully grate in lime zest.

Add hot water and sugar. Mix well, or until all of the sugar has dissolved.

Pour into a freezer safe dish and transfer to the freezer to set up.

Juice fresh pomelos into a glass bowl.

Add hot water and honey.

Mix well, or until all of the sugar has dissolved.

Pour into a freezer safe dish and transfer to the freezer.

Once the granita sheets are frozen, use a fork to scrape the granita into tiny flavored ice flakes.

Repeat with each flavor.

I recommended doing this over a frozen slab to maintain temperature.

Once finished, all that’s left to do is ENJOY!
