GOOD TASTE: A Rainbow of Granita Recipes

1-Granita Round Up

Every July 11th or 7/11, the 7-Eleven Convenience Stores give away free Slurpees. Have you ever had a Slurpee? They’re a frozen, icy, sugary beverage that tastes so good on a hot day. I didn’t get my free Slurpee this year which made me sad. So I started thinking about how I could easily make something similar. Have you heard of Granita? It’s a fancy Slurpee! Doesn’t Granita sound better than Slurpee? Actually, a Granita is better than a Slurpee and as I was checking out granita ideas, I realized that you can pretty much make them in a rainbow of colors and flavors.

And just in case you didn’t know, granitas come from Italy. Sicily to be exact. They are made from water, sugar and either fruit or some other ingredient to give it flavor. I can’t wait to make some of these. Enjoy this rainbow of granita ideas.
