Recipe: Fruity Granita

Fruity Granita

Granita is a semi-frozen desert of sugar, water, and different flavors originating in Sicily and popular in Italy. This one uses Crystal Light Lemonade™ which is made with artificial sweeteners to reduce the amount of sugar needed to make the dessert. Enjoy it immediately, or freeze and serve later. Very refreshing on these hot summer days!

Ingredients:

1 ¼ cup water

1 pitcher sized packet of Crystal Light Lemonade™

1-20 ounce bag frozen strawberries

Directions: 1. Combine half the packet of lemonade mix with half the fruit in the blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Stir with spatula if needed.

2. Repeat with remaining fruit and liquid.

3. Pour into five cups.

Can eat immediately or freeze and eat later. Makes 5 servings
