Glorious Granitas

 

Granitas, also called Italian Ices, are one of the greatest inventions for a sweltering summer day. They not only taste heavenly, they also refresh our hot-and-bothered spirits since they’re like snow-cones for grown-ups. The best part is that granitas are easy to make from any pureed fruit, and we can give them an antioxidant, nutrition, and color boost with PURE SYNERGY® superfood powders.

Cooking Instructions

Regardless of the fruit or recipe that you choose, the cooking instructions are basically the same. First, add all the ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth. Pour into a large baking dish so that the liquid is no more than half an inch deep. Place into the freezer for about a half an hour, then use a fork to scrape the top and sides of the mixture to create ice shavings. Place back into the freezer then, every 30 minutes, scrape with the fork until it converts completely into light and fluffy ice crystals. Keep it in the freezer until you’re ready to serve. Place the fruity masterpiece into bowls and enjoy this refreshing, ice-cold dessert.
