Unfortunately, you will need a food processor for this recipe.
It sounds like a long process but it’s very easy to make. You need three days because you have to wait for the mixture to freeze between steps. Let me tell you…it’s worth the wait.
I used a pineapple to serve my granita but it’s not necessary. It looks good but it’s not necessary. If you want to impress your guests but it’s not necessary. Lol!
5 cups Water
1 cup Sugar
1 can Lemonade concentrate
1 Pineapple, halved and flesh removed ; not necessary but….
1 tbsp Pineapple, crushed
50 ml Pineapple juice
1 Egg White
3 drops Yellow Gel Food Colouring (optional)
Day 1 – Boil water with sugar. Freeze in a shallow container. You can clean your pineapple today or wait for Day 2. Just remember that you will need the juice and flesh for tomorrow! Freeze the pineapple shell if you want to impress…but not necessary!
Day 2 – Break up frozen mixture in pieces and put in food processor. Use the attachment with the blade. Add lemon concentrate, crushed pineapple, juice and egg white. Mix until mixture is completely blended and appears fluffy. It turns into a milky colour. This process takes a good 10 minutes. Pour into shallow container and refreeze.
Day 3 – Break up frozen mixture and put in food processor. Mix until mixture is completely blended and appears fluffy. It turns into a milky colour. This process takes a good 10 minutes. Add food colouring. Pour into pineapple halves and wrap with plastic wrap or pour in a container which can be sealed.
Enjoy this refreshing treat while watching the Olympics! Good luck to our athletes!
