Easy Refreshing Peach Lime Granita

Today we are going to talk about our Easy Refreshing Peach Lime Granita. When we don’t have time to churn out Ice cream or wait till Ice cream sets, still you can enjoy making granita. Granitas usually gets ready in 2 hours minimum.

What is Granita?

Granita is seems to be an Italian dessert.I have always confused between Granita,Sorbet and Slush.When I read about it,Granita is made using just hands while others use machine.(still I used food processor for making fruit puree,does it count?)Another trick I read was,use steel baking dish to make it than glass dish.This helps in getting perfect texture.I lost the link where I read these details.I tried finding but couldn’t. The texture of it should be crystal.The important point to keep in mind is to scrape it between 30 minutes.

Why I made Granita.

My husband recently bought a box of peaches from Costco.Its actually a lot for us to finish it off with in few days.Few days it was outside the refrigerator.seeing it’s getting shrunk I pitied it and kept in the refrigerator.It was staying there for few more days.Whenever I open the refrigerator it gives me a humble look to use it up.I made these  Mocktail.  

But to use those lot of peaches,I chose to make Granita. I was thinking why I didn’t make it before.It tasted more refreshing for the burning heat here.

How I made Granita.

Making granita is not a big deal.Just blending fruit along sugar and water to make puree.Freeze. That’s it .You can add any fruit puree Adding water, makes the crystals.See, how easy it is.
