Serves: 8


  • 1½ cups cubed pineapple
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. light brown sugar


  • Purée the pineapple in a food processor or blender with the juice. Press purée through a strainer, if desired.
  • Stir the sugars into the juice until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Refrigerate until chilled.
  • 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. Return the container to the freezer, and repeat the process every 30–45 minutes, stirring carefully each time, until you have a fully frozen container of crystallized granita.
