Holiday Cranberry Granita
Looking for another idea on how to incorporate cranberries into your holiday menu? This Holiday Cranberry Granita is a light dessert option after a heavy holiday meal! The granita is tart, sweet, and with a touch of cinnamon, it promises to bring all the warm spices reminiscent of the holiday season.
Servings: 4 Small Servings
- 10 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1 cup sparkling water I used Cranberry Citrus, but any flavor will work
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- pinch kosher salt
In a blender or food processor, add all of the ingredients and blend until the cranberries are completely blended and pureed.
Pour the cranberry mixture into a freezer safe dish, such as a small casserole dish or baking dish. Freeze for about 2 hours, until frozen all the way through.
When ready to serve, defrost the granita on the counter for a few minutes to make it easier to scrape and scoop. Using a small cookie scoop or fork, scrape the granita and scoop into serving dishes. Garnish with sugar-covered cranberries and enjoy!
