The tropical kiwi packs more punch per bite than most fruits, and thus makes an amazing granita. Consider serving with a drizzle of orange juice or Grand Marnier for an after-dinner treat.
INGREDIENTS | YIELD: 1 QUART
- 2 pounds kiwis, peeled and chopped
- 1¼ cups water
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and purée until very smooth.
Refrigerate until chilled.
Pour into a covered container and place in the freezer for 1 hour.
Remove from freezer, and stir the frozen crystals into the center of the container with a fork.
Return the container to the freezer, and repeat the process every 30–45 minutes, stirring carefully each time, until you have a fully frozen container of crystallized granita.
