Strawberry Granita

Granita looks like sparkling jewels when u serve it and it contains hardly any calories..Granita goes for fresh fruits, lemon juice and sugar, with these three ingredients u will get a beautiful frozen dessert..This frozen dessert requires no ice cream maker and just need to freeze the mixture in a stainless steel box and scrape with a fork..Using stainless steel box will accelerate the freezing time and helps for a quick freezing..This strawberry granita is a  prefect summer dessert and the texture of granita ressembles quite like gelato or sorbet also its easy to make since it doesnt go for fancy equipments other than a blender or a food processor, so u can prepare the granita with any sort of fruits eventhough my favourite goes for strawberries..


3cups Strawberries(chopped)
1/2cup Sugar
2tbsp Lemon juice
1/2cup Water

Combine the sugar and water in a blender and blend until the sugar dissolves,add the chopped strawberries and lemon juice and continue to blend until smooth..pour the mixture in a stainless steel box and freeze for 3hours..scrape with a fork and freeze again for 5 hours or overnight..

Remove the mixture from the freezer and let sit for few minutes, scrape the mixture with a fork and serve in a bowl..Enjoy !!
