Hello, summer treat!

Fresh mango granita all day, all summer long.

So fruity. Because it’s all fruit <– no water/juice.

ALMOST guilt free. 

Fruit granitas are one of my favorite things to make in summer. It’s loaded with fresh summer fruit. Can be made ahead and stored in the freezer for anytime use. Incredibly easy to make. Aaaand, it tastes amazing!

This mango granita ain’t any different-

  • You blend fresh mango, lime juice and sugar
  • Freeze
  • Scrape and eat.

Most granita recipes requires stirring the blended mixture (from the freezer) every 30 minutes to distribute the ice crystals until I realized one day ( out of sheer laziness) this method works amazing. In fact, makes it less icier. 

You blend granita ingredients, pour into a freezer safe container and freeze until solid. 

Scrape with a fork (just as much as you need), spoon into a bowl and store remaining granita in the freezer. As easy as that. 

This mango granita is made with all mangoes, a bit of sugar to sweeten and lime juice. No liquid of any kind. So, you can really taste the fruit <—- Summer in a bowl.

To make the best tasting mango granita

  1. Use ripe, juicy mangoes that are not fibrous. 
  2. Sugar depends on the sweetness of the mangoes. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar, blend and taste. You want the mixture to be a little sweeter than what you would want (since the granita will taste less sweeter when frozen). Add more if required.

The best part is that you make it and let it hang out in the freezer. Satisfies your ice cream temptation without the guilt.
