One of my family’s favorite restaurants is Evvia in Palo Alto (or their sister restaurant Kokkari in the city). While we always over indulge with each course, we somehow always have room for dessert (don’t you hate how that happens!?)… and this is the PERFECT, most refreshing (and guilt free) dessert of them all.
Blood Orange Granita
- 4 cups juice of your choice (we used blood orange juice… watermelon and strawberry are other great options)
- 1/4 cup simple syrup
- a squeeze of lemon juice
- Combine mixture and pour into a metal rimmed baking sheet.
- Freeze for 3 hours.
- Once set, use a fork to scrape dessert into a slushie consistency.
- Top with frozen Greek Yogurt (I literally mean freeze a tub of full fat Greek yogurt and use an ice cream scoop to serve it atop your granita).
