    I’ve been meaning to make granita – there are so many great flavors! Thanks for your recipe.

    I haven’t made granita in awhile. Thanks for reminding me to do so. I’m especially fond of the watermelon “sorbet.” I would love for you to join me at Diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com for Crock Pot Wednesday. It’s easy, fun and economical! Come on over and check it out.

    Love this idea =D. I’ve had my share of slushies, but this looks like the perfect homemade treat!

    Oh I used to make coffee granita, and canteloupe also — I haven’t thought of them in years! Thanks for the reminders; they are delicious and so refreshing after meals!

    I still haven’t made a granita either. I just like saying the word so far. ;-) LOL I’m not a big juice person either, but I don’t like to waste as well, so this idea is a really good one, Amy. Who can resist a granita that reminds you of your grandmother’s apple pie and ice cream? :-)

    I’ve been thinking about a coffee granita for a while now…especially since it’s still 95 degrees outside here. This sounds light and refreshing!

    I know!!! I have started making soup with hopes of influencing the Texas heat. No luck so far but I’m having lots of fun.

    This sounds delicious, Amy! I always have granita in the back of my mind, but I haven’t made it for a good long while, and it is still HOT in FL too!

    This has inspired me. I have some blackberries in the fridge that I am going to thaw puree and strain and make this with it. I am making dinner for my Bestie this weekend and we are both trying to slim down – but this will make us forget we’re on diets :)
    As always thank you. I love your site and your recipes and have been making your food for over a year and the only thing I have never been able to like are (cp) clafoutis.

    @Jenny R, Hi Jenny!

    FYI – don’t puree the berries in a Vita-Mix or other high powered blender. For some reason the pureed seeds make it taste like it has dirt in it.

    Did you make the clafoutis? No luck, huh? I love it – in fact I should make one soon.

    I’m honored that you’ve been cooking from my blog for over a year – and I’m so glad you shared that with me. I never would have know. You made my day.

    There you go again, solving the world’s problems- at least mine anyway! ML and I recently went on a liver cleanse and had half a gallon of organic apple juice. Now that I have my Breville juicer :) the last thing i want is apple juice.
    This is a perfect solution for a cooling dessert on our scorching hot summer days!
    Thanks Mon Ami!
