Kiwi Granita

The tropical kiwi packs more punch per bite than most fruits, and thus makes an amazing granita. Consider serving with a drizzle of orange juice or Grand Marnier for an after-dinner treat.

  • Pour into a covered container and place in the freezer for 1 hour. Remove from freezer, and stir the frozen crystals into the center of the container with a fork.
