NATURAL TROPICAL GRANITA


NATURAL TROPICAL GRANITA

NATURAL TROPICAL GRANITA




Once you've tried homemade, natural and free from pounds of sugar stuff it feels kind of weird when you buy those with so many flavors, colorants and artificial sweeteners. It is so good and funny to make your own though. At least from time to time... it is way more satisfying and healthy!

Making granitas is the simplest thing and you can play with so many flavours... like in this case with tropical fruits. You choose the ones you prefer, add some natural sweetener if you like, loads of ice and you'll have a nice homemade and 100% natural granita made in no time.

 The coconut milk used is also homemade. You can use canned coconut milk but I honestly recommend making your own because it is so delicious! Besides, it is so easy and quick to make and you can use it for many other recipes or simply have it plain, it is so good. So you'll find the whole process of making it below. 

At this occasion I added some pomegranate syrup, like the one I used on the recent Muhammara recipe, that you can find here

It was so hot when I took the pictures that almost all the ice was gone but I hope you'll see more than a smoothie, because this is a nice cold granita!


So here's the recipe...

ELABORATION
  1. First we make the coconut milk. Open it and keep the water from the inside. Remove the pulp from half of it and put it along with the water and blend at high intensity.
  2. Add one or two glasses of cold water and keep blending. Add some sweetener if you want and some more water if it is too thick. Then strain preferably using a milk bag. Keep the remaining pulp for other recipes.
  3. Now cut the pineapple and the watermelon into chunks and blend well until smooth. Reserve.
  4. Crush the ice. Add the pineapple and watermelon and pour the coconut milk. If you have it, add some pomegranate syrup and mix all well. Now it's ready to serve and drink!
