A spin in the blender turns two simple ingredients into a cooling frozen desert.
There’s nothing more soothing on a sweaty summer day than a frozen treat. But dairy-based ice creams and gelatos can weigh you down, and they’re packed with sugar to give them a creamy texture. Italian granita is a lighter, icier alternative – even better, it’s a breeze for anyone to make, no special equipment required!
Think of this granita as a frozen lemonade on steroids. Strawberries are a classic addition, but you can throw in any combination of ripe berries for your own twist – use whatever is ripest at your local market! Then a quick blitz and a few hours in the freezer are all it takes to complete this tart, refreshing cooler. You’ll want to have some in your freezer all summer long.
