Zingy, refreshing granita is an easy to make dessert that you can prepare ahead, so you'll be chilled out when you dish it up for your guests. This icy treat has a peppy herbal flavour thanks to a dash of Pukka Citrus Zing Aqua Herbs in the mix, alongside plenty of fresh lemon juice and a pinch of mint. Enjoy it as it is or turn it into an Italian dessert cocktail, Citrus Zing Granita Sgroppino


  • 200g raw cane sugar
  • 450ml lemon juice (approximately 8 lemons)
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tsp Pukka Citrus Zing Aqua Herbs
  • A handful of mint (optional)

Prep: 20 mins + freezing | Cook: nil

1. Tip the sugar into a large bowl. Finely grate the zest from 1 lemon and 1 lime into the bowl. Squeeze the juice from the lemons and lime into the bowl. Add 250ml cold water. Stir till the sugar has dissolved. Add in 2 tsp of Citrus Zing Aqua Herbs and swirl together.
2. Tip the mix into a large, shallow dish. Cover and slide into the freezer. Leave to freeze until completely solid – overnight would be perfect.
3. When ready to serve, remove the granita from the freezer. Leave at room temperature for 5-10 mins to soften. Using a fork, rake the solid granita to create soft, fluffy crystals. Serve in ice cold glasses straight away, topped with a little sprinkle of chopped mint, if you like.
4. Freeze Me, Keep Me
The granita will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month, stored in a sealed tub to stop it absorbing other flavours in the freezer. It will set solid, so leave at room temperature for 5-10 mins, then fluff with a fork to serve.
