Coffee Granita ( Only 4 Ingredients )

Coffee Granita

  Makes a little less than 4 cups of shaved ice If you don’t have an espresso maker, use instant espresso powder to make the coffee for this sophisticated granita. Use 7 teaspoons of powder for 21⁄2 cups of water.

Ingredients :

  1. 21⁄2 cups brewed espresso
  2. 1⁄4 cup coffee-flavored liqueur, such as Kahlúa
  3. 2⁄3 cup sugar, preferably superfine sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest, finely chopped
Coffee Granita

Instructions :

  1. Whisk all the ingredients in a large bowl until the sugar dissolves, pour into a 9 × 13-inch baking pan; place it on the floor of the freezer. Freeze for about 2 hours, scraping and stirring with a fork every 20 minutes or so to break apart the ice crystals and distribute them throughout the mixture. When the granita is frozen but still soft, smooth out the crystals and cover the pan with plastic wrap. The granita can be stored, tightly covered, in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.
  2. Serve by scraping up the ice crystals from the granita’s surface with a fork; scoop them into individual-serving bowls, plates, or cups. You can endlessly vary this recipe based on the coffee you use, anything from different roasts to flavored beans.
  3. Sicily is known for a heavenly dessert made with coffee granita. Beat 2 cups of heavy cream until doubled in volume, then stir the scraped-up ice crystals into the whipped cream and serve at once.
