Grapefruit Granita | ChopChop
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.
Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your kitchen gear and ingredients and put them on a clean counter.
- 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.
