Granita is a semi-frozen sicilian dessert.
The ingrendients are water, sugar and the flavoring that you prefer... A great example is to add a strong espresso and prepare an amazing Espresso Granita!
It is quick and easy to make such as Coconut sweets.

Granita recipe
begins by simmering sugar and water in a saucepan to make a syrup.  Once the syrup has cooled slightly add the espresso and, finally , transfer the mixture to a container and place in the freezer.  When you see ice crystals beginning to form around the edges of the container, stir the mixture with a fork.  Repete for 2/3 times regular stirring at 30-minute intervals.

Serve your espresso granita in aperitif glasses and add a bit of cream. Enjoy!!!
