Strawberry Lime Granita

Granita looks like sparkling jewels and it contains hardly any calories.Granita goes for fresh fruits, lemon juice and sugar, with these three ingredients you 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 the frozen mixture with a fork.Using stainless steel box will accelerate the freezing time and helps for a quick freezing.Usually i'll make strawberry granita, but for a change i tried adding some lime zest and lime juice in this granita,which gives seriously a different flavour to the usual strawberry granita.

This strawberry lime 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 you can prepare the granita with any sort of fruits eventhough my favourite goes for strawberries..This granita is my third post for this week's blogging marathon and check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#30.Sending to Srivalli's Summer Special Mela.




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

Combine the sugar and water in a blender and blend until the sugar dissolves,add the chopped strawberries and lime juice and continue to blend until smooth.

Pour the mixture in a stainless steel box,add the lime zest, give a stir.

Freeze for 3hour.. Remove from the freezer.

Use a fork to break the frozen portions of the granita into large chunks, and stir them into the centre.

Return to freezer. Repeat 3-4 times, every 30 minutes, or until the mixture resembles coarse crystals.

Freeze overnight, if desired.and freeze again for 5 hours or overnight..

Serve and enjoy..
