Grapefruit Granita

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.

kitchen gear

  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Shallow pan
  • Spoon
  • Fork


  • 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.

Top each serving with 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint leaves.
The word granita shares the same root as granular, because the frozen dessert has a grainy texture.
