Orange You Glad To See Me Granita ™

This is my version of a granita. 

This is perfect for summer and anytime of the year too.


10 oz (1 1/4c) water
1/8 c. sweetener (optional)
1/2 c. fresh orange juice (1 -2 fresh oranges)

Juice oranges into a cup, set aside in fridge.

Bring water to boil over high heat.

Reduce heat to medium high, add sweetner and stir until dissolved about 2- 5 minutes. 

Set aside to let cool for 20 - 30 min.

Pour juice through a strainer into pan with water. 

Mix well with a fork. Pour mixture into a meatloaf pan.

Run fork through liquid a few times.

Cover with plastic wrap, and put in freezer.

40 minutes into freezing, take pan out of freezer and run fork through liquid a few times.

Put back in freezer. Repeat the process every 40 minutes for 3 - 4 hours or until done. 

This will keep the mixture from freezing solid.

Serves 4 approx.
