"A cool and refreshing treat. The more frequently you stir granita, the slushier it will be. The less you stir, the icier it will be. Use Splenda® if you prefer."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

A little on the sweet side for me. Next I will try adding a little more lemon juice to get the tart flavor I love so much.

Used frozen berries and had an instant frozen treat! Great recipe!

Made it like a sorbet in an ice cream maker. Used honey for sugar and more lemon cuz I like it. Heavenly.
