Recipe Ingredients

  • 600ml tropical-juice blend – we used orange and mango
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2½ tbsp dark rum, optional
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 granadillas

Recipe Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the fruit juice, sugar, rum (if using)  and lime juice until  sugar dissolves. Pour into a roasting tin and  freeze overnight, or until completely solid.
  2. Halve the granadillas and scrape the seeds into a small bowl.
  3. When ready to eat, scrape the tines of a fork firmly across the surface  of the frozen mixture to form small, chilled flakes. Spoon flakes into small glasses, spoon over some granadilla seeds and  serve immediately.

Get ahead

Prepare to end of step 1 up to a week ahead. A day before serving, put a medium freezer-proof serving dish in the freezer to chill for 10 minutes. Take out frozen granita and scrape into flakes. Working quickly, transfer flakes to the chilled serving dish and freeze again until you’re ready to serve. Then simply spoon granita into the glasses and garnish with granadilla seeds.
