A granita is a frozen dessert with very much the same consistency of a ‘slushie’. It is a great refreshing dessert. This one uses Pom juice and just a hint of simple syrup to add a bit of sweetener. This is so good for you; it is packed with antioxidants. But the better part is just how wonderful it is – it’s POM WONDERFUL !

8 oz. Pom Wonderful pomegranate juice
1 T simple syrup (or 1 T of Starbucks Classic Syrup)
Place a metal bowl in the freezer to chill. Combine ingredients and pour into the bowl and place in the freezer for 30 – 60 minutes. When ice crystals form on the edges, stir with a fork being sure to pull away all the frozen pieces around the edges and freeze another 2-3 hours stirring every ½ hour. Best to serve right after the initial freeze time, but if f you let it sit overnight, be sure to defrost for 15 minutes or so before serving.
