Easy Fruity Granita

Granita is Italian for “grain,” and the word “grainy” perfectly describes the texture of this style of Italian ice. We recommend scraping the granita with a fork just before serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice or your favorite juice or fruit nectar

Instructions

1. Bring water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

2. Add juice and stir to combine.

3. Transfer mixture to an 8-inch square cake pan or a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid to avoid spills. Freeze. Scrape with a fork.
