Strawberry Kiwi Granita
Strawberry and kiwi share a similar flavor and complement each other in a delightful way. Expect a powerful pop of taste in this refreshing recipe.
INGREDIENTS | YIELD: 1 QUART
- 1½ pounds strawberries, chopped
- 3 kiwis, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 cup water
Purée the berries and kiwis in a food processor or blender with the lemon juice. Press purée through a strainer to remove seeds.
Stir in the sugar and water, and allow to sit for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
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.
Whether it is the feel or the look of kiwis, most people opt to peel the skin off this fruit before eating it. No need! The skin is perfectly edible.
