What is granita made of?

Let’s get right into it: what is granita? Here’s a quick extract from my Watermelon Granita recipe:
First things first, granita is an Italia-style flavoured ice. Think, a fancy version of the shaved ice you used to eat as a child. This granita is like a grown up version that still tastes absolutely amazing, except without the pounds of syrup on ice. It is so incredibly refreshing, a real cooler-down in this crazy summer heat and perfect for pretty much every occasion.

Long story short, Gav fell in LOVE with Granita after I made it. He’s been asking for it for the last two years straight so I finally tried out a new flavour. Now I’m the one is also totally head over heels again.

This Strawberry Granita is EVERYTHING I ever wanted in a ice cone like dessert and more. It’s soooo reminiscent of one of my favourite childhood treats minus all those heavy syrups. So I’m pretty sure if you have kids or younger siblings/relatives that they will adore this. It’s just about the easiest thing you’ll make this summer which is like reason #6572819 to make it. Plus it‘s a great dessert to beat the heat this Summer!

How long does strawberry granita last in freezer?

It will last for months in the freezer. In reality, probably a week cause you’ll eat it all by then!
