It’s hard to imagine that just freezing and stirring grapefruit juice can so fully transform it into a frozen dessert — but it does! Grapefruit is a great fruit for a granita, but you can try almost any juice, particularly citrus. Just like oranges, grapefruit are an excellent source of vitamin C.
- Measuring cup
- Measuring spoons
- Shallow pan
- 3 cups grapefruit juice either store-bought or squeezed from around 4 medium-sized grapefruits
- 1 cup maple syrup, honey, or brown sugar
- Put the juice and maple syrup, honey, or sugar in the pan and mix until combined. Carefully put the pan in the freezer.
- Using a fork, stir every 15 minutes until frozen, about 2 hours. After 2 hours, serve, or cover and freeze in individual portions for up to 2 weeks.
FANCY THAT! Top each serving with 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint leaves. DID YOU KNOW? The word granita shares the same root as granular, because the frozen dessert has a grainy texture.
