Strawberry Granita Recipe
  • Put all ingredients into food processor and purée.
  • Pour purée into a shallow freezable container (to get as much surface area as possible), cover, and freeze until firm. Time will depend on thickness of purée layer and freezer temperature (from 2-4 hours). Leave in the freezer until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, remove purée and let stand at room temperature a few minutes, until it can be easily cut or broken into large chunks.
  • Put about 1/3 of the frozen purée at a time into food processor. Using short pulses, process until purée is in very small bits, but not slushy. Serve immediately.
