Have you ever thought of using blueberries for a granita? if you haven’t, here’s a recipe to make this refreshing dessert that is perfect for the summer!
Preparation Time: 15 mins
Additional: 4 hrs
- 2 ½ cups blueberries
- ½ cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Blend the blueberries and sugar in a food processor until smooth; strain through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing with a wooden spoon to separate the blueberry puree from any chunks of skin or seeds.
Stir the strained blueberry puree, water, and lemon juice together in a shallow glass baking dish or tray. Place the dish in the freezer; scrape and stir the blueberry mixture with a fork once an hour until evenly frozen and icy, about 4 hours. Scrape to fluff and lighten the ice crystals; spoon into chilled glasses to serve.
