Papaya Guava Granita

Oxmoor House
Yield Serves 8 (serving size: 1/2 cup)
The tropical nectars make this an intensely flavored granita–and there's a nutrition bonus, too: Both papaya and guava give you a dose of vitamins A and C.


  • 1 cup guava nectar
  • 1 cup papaya nectar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind (from 1 orange)
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice (about 1 orange)
