Servings 2 people


  • Water : 5 cup
  • Sugar : 2 cup
  • Lime juce, freshly squeezed and sieved : ½ cup
  • Salt : a pinch
  • Green color : few


  • Mix the sugar, salt and water in a pan and bring it to a boil.
  • Give it about 4 - 5 minutes from the point when it starts boiling, then switch off.
  • Let this syrup cool down, then add your freshly squeezed lime juice and a few drops of color.
  • Mix together well, then pour it into a dish. Cover and freeze it for a little while until it starts to set.
  • Remove the dish and, using a fork, scrape everything until it looks like crumbs, then cover and put the dish back.
  • Again a couple hours or so later, remove the dish and scrape it up once more and cover and return it back into the freezer.
  • This process gives your granita that lovely slushy icy crumbly look and texture.
  • Whenever you're ready to have it, scrape it up quickly again using a fork, then serve and garnish with mint or lime slices or even lime rind.
