Strawberry Granita

Strawberry Granita

Granita is a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water and various flavorings. This granita with sweet ICONS strawberries contains hardly any calories.


250 ml water
150 gram sugar
75 ml lemon juice
350 gram ICONS strawberries


Bring water, sugar and lemon juice to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

Place strawberries and cooled lemon syrup in a blender and puree. Strain strawberry mixture through fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds. Discard seeds.

Pour strained mixture into 13 x 9-inch glass or metal baking pan. Place in freezer and chill about 1 hour or until edges begin to freeze. Using a fork, scrape mixture towards center of pan. Repeat every 30 minutes until mixture is frozen and flaky, about 1 1/2 hours longer. Cover and keep frozen until ready to serve. Granita can be made up to 2 days ahead.
