Total time: 
Serves: 4+
Soft, fluffy granita ice crystals provide a mouth-puckering burst of citrus and make a refreshing palate cleanser or snack any time of year.
  • Grapefruits, juiced
  • Sugar, to taste
  1. Place a 9x13-inch pan in the freezer.
  2. Juice the grapefruits.
  3. Sweeten the fruit juice to taste with sugar or leave it unsweetened.
  4. Pour the fruit juice into the chilled pan and place it in the freezer.
  5. Check the juice between 15-30 minutes {time will vary depending on the thickness of the juice} and stir the juice once it starts to freeze to the sides of the pan.
  6. Return the pan to the freezer and repeat the process, periodically stirring the juice vigorously with a whisk to beat the ice and break it down into soft crystals.
  7. When the granita has formed into soft, fluffy ice crystals serve it immediately or store it in a sealed container.
