Pink Lemonade Granita

Pink Lemonade Granita

Skip the lengthy steps required to make homemade ice creams and sorbets, and instead stuff your freezer (and face!) full of granitas. Similar to a sno-cone, this flaked frozen treat can be made from almost any sweetened liquid but we’ve opted to use one of the kids’ favourite drinks: pink lemonade. For a satisfying variation, try topping the granita with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or sorbet for a pink lemonade-flavoured creamsicle dessert.

Serves 4.

You’ll Need

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 ½ cups filtered water
  • 1 cup (approx. 6 lemons) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp grenadine

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Combine the sugar and ½ cup water in a small saucepan set over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool.
  • 2
    Add remaining water, lemon juice, and grenadine to the pot and stir.
  • 3
    Pour liquid into a 9x13-inch baking dish and freeze. Scrape mixture with a fork every hour or so until icy and spoonable, about 4 hours total.
