This frozen dessert requires no ice-cream maker--just freeze the mixture in a pan, and scrape with a fork. If you'd like to spruce up the granita, top with chopped or halved fresh strawberries and grated lemon zest.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup warm water
3 cups sliced strawberries
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Combine the sugar and water in a blender; process until sugar dissolves. Add strawberries and juice; process until smooth. Pour mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish. Cover and freeze 3 hours; stir well. Cover and freeze 5 hours or overnight.
Remove mixture from freezer; let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Scrape entire mixture with a fork until fluffy.
This recipe was so easy and way tasty. Looking back, I realize I forgot to add the lemon juice, but it still was perfect. I'll probably experiment with different fruits too; it looks easy to play around with.
