Beet Pineapple Granita with Mānuka Honey
Made with sweet pineapple, organic red beet crystals, fresh lemon juice, and manuka honey, this sweet, tart, and nutrient-packed frozen dessert is unbelievably easy to make and so refreshingly delicious.
1- Blender or Food Processor
1- 9x9 Baking Pan or Dish (approximate)
cored, peeled, and diced (set aside a few pieces for garnish)
Flora Organic Red Beet Crystals
Flora Mānuka Honey
fresh lemon juice
lemon, orange, or lime
Place the pineapple, beet crystals, lemon juice, mānuka honey, and salt in a blender or food processor. Process for 1.5 to 2 minutes. It should be the thickness of a smoothie.
Position a fine-mesh sieve or colander over your baking pan or dish
Once it looks super smooth, pour into a shallow baking dish or metal pan with a 9x9 pan size or larger to help the granita to freeze faster.
Place the dish in the freezer.
After an hour, give the mixture a stir, scraping and breaking up any crystals starting to form around the edge with your fork. Repeat every 30-40 minutes for 3-4 hours or until fully chilled.
Serve garnished with mint and citrus zest.
Granita will keep about a week in the freezer.
