Grape granita recipe – Raks Kitchen

Grape granita recipe, red grapes granita is a simple refreshing summer treat, with just 3 simple ingredient, available at your pantry.

Every summer, When I think about the recipes I should post in summer, I feel I should post couple of each from popsicle, sorbet and granita as these are the easy ones we can make at home with less effort. I feel ice-cream is high calorie comparatively, this is just sugar, which we have total control. Though the texture depends on sugar, we can slightly alter unlike ice creams.

So I made this list of sorbets, popsicles and granitas a few years ago, but here I am still taking ideas from it 😁 At least every year, I need not worry about the summer posts right?

Summer is already here this year, it is getting hotter and hotter each day. I bought only grapes last weekend when I went for weekly grocery shopping. Since already posted grape popsicles I thought of trying granita for blog as well as enjoying the cool treat for this heat.

Check out my green grape pickle, grape juice too.
