Strawberry Pińa Coloda Granita Recipe

After browsing Pinterest and looking around in my fridge, I decided to make some type of frozen dessert. With strawberries, pineapple juice-infused coconut water, a little lime juice, and sugar, I came up with this recipe for strawberry pińa coloda granita. It’s sweet and refreshing, a perfect treat on a hot summer day–and super easy!

Strawberry Pińa Coloda Granita

Here’s the recipe:

Strawberry Pińa Coloda Granita

Makes about 4 servings

10 med to large strawberries (about 1 1/2 cups), stems removed

11 ounces coconut water with pineapple juice (I used a box of Naked brand)

1/2 cup coconut water

1/2 cup sugar

Juice from 1 lime

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until a smooth, liquid consistency is achieved. Transfer to a metal bowl and place uncovered in freezer for approximately 4 hours. Stir and scrape with a fork every 30-45 minutes. It should reach a shaved-ice like consistency. Serve immediately (before it melts!)

For anyone wondering (like I once did), a granita is an Italian, semi-frozen dessert made from water, sugar, and a variety of flavorings. Enjoy!
