Refreshing Raspberry Granita

Updated on August 5, 2014

Very easy, yet elegant

I think it's fun to have a fancy dinner with several courses every now and then. I find that I am more likely to make some different types of dishes and that's where this Raspberry Granita comes into play. It's a light and refreshing in between courses and  full of delicious raspberry flavor.

Not interested in fancy dinners, you say?  Enjoy Raspberry Granita as an easy treat any time you like.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups raspberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
