Strawberry Granita – 3 Ingredients

Strawberry Granita3

About:

A granita is an Italian semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water and various flavoured ingredients.   I love making granitas from berries, such as raspberries, blueberries and strawberries!

Frosty and light, each spoonful is bright and refreshing, capturing the sweetness of the berries balanced with a hint of honey and tangy lemon flavour.

Yields-4-5 servings
Preparation time-5 minutes
Waiting time-3-4 hours

Ingredients:

  • Strawberry- 400gms (hulled and sliced in two)
  • Honey-2-3tbsp
  • Lemon juice-from 1 lemon

Procedure:

  • Combine the sliced strawberries, honey, lemon juice in a blender/food processor and process until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a freezer safe 13x9inch baking dish, cover and place in the freezer.
  • Once ice crystals start to form scrape the mixture with the tines of a fork every 30 minutes as the mixture freezes, until granite is fully frozen but scoop able consistency (about 3 hours)
  • Once set remove from the freezer and stir with a fork to break it up and scoop into individual serving dishes or glasses.

Note:

  • Sweetness can be personalised as per the taste.
  • For vegan option replace honey with maple syrup or alternative sweetener of choice.
  • Ok, if you want to get fancy, you can add all kinds of toppings.
