Simple Fruit Juice Granita

Simple Fruit Juice Granita

This is a very simple treat that can be used with your favorite fruit juices to make many different variations. My favorite variation has banana in it. It brings a bit of creaminess to the icy treat. The small bottles of prepackaged juice in the produce section are the perfect amount of juice for this recipe--just pick a flavor! Don't let the mixture freeze completely before you scrape. The secret is to scrape as it freezes.

  1. Step 1

    Mix sugar and water together in a glass, microwave-safe, 8x8-inch dish. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Mix with a fork until all sugar is dissolved. Stir in juice.
  2. Step 2

    Freeze for 1 hour. Scrape mixture with a fork. Return to the freezer in increments of 30 minutes, scraping with a fork to create small granules after each one. The granita is ready when it resembles icy sand, about 3 hours total.
