bloody mary
"This lovely little granita is a favorite of mine to serve at parties in the summer. We love a good Bloody Mary around our house, so we make up a big batch of this granita and serve it to our guests in shot glasses. It’s a great way to get your party started. It’s a little different for a granita, because there’s no sugar in it, but it has a good swift kick of heat."-Pamela BraunRecipe excerpted with permission from Frozen Paleo: Dairy-Free Ice Cream, Pops, Pies, Granitas, Sorbets, and More by Pamela Braun.

lemon  mint
"Granitas are like sorbets’ messier cousins. They aren’t as refined (smooth and silky). Their ice crystals are jagged and lumpy and they can look a little strange sometimes. But you can’t deny how refreshing they are, or their strong flavor. They’re made very similarly to sorbets except you skip the machine part and rough them up every hour with a fork, so they’re also easy to make. You may not think that lemon and mint go together, but they do. This tart granita is a perfect after-dinner treat. The mint is subtle in this one—you will taste it after the cold, refreshing ice crystals have melted on your tongue. I also like to serve this as a palate cleanser if I’m serving a big meal."- Pamela BraunRecipe excerpted with permission from FFrozen Paleo: Dairy-Free Ice Cream, Pops, Pies, Granitas, Sorbets, and More by Pamela Braun. To purchase your own copy, click here.
