Light, elegant and refreshing! Pineapple, Honey and Green Tea Granita is delicious. Granita is a frozen fruit dessert made from fresh fruit and water, blended and frozen until icy, flaked with a fork and frozen again. The result is a delightfully crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth fruit ice, perfect eating all on its own for the hot Australian summer.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 GREEN TEA BAGS

  • 2 CUPS (500ML) BOILING WATER

  • ⅓ CUP (115G) HONEY

  • 500G CHOPPED PINEAPPLE

  • 1 TEASPOON FINELY GRATED LIME RIND

  • LIME WEDGES, TO SERVE

METHOD

  1. Place the tea bags, boiling water and honey in a medium heatproof bowl and stir to dissolve the honey. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until cooled. Remove and discard the tea bags. 

  2. Pour the tea mixture into a blender. Add the pineapple and lime rind and blend until smooth. Pour into a 20cm x 30cm shallow metal tin and place in the freezer for 6 hours or overnight until frozen. 

  3. Using a fork, rake the granita and return to the freezer until ready to serve. Serve the granita with lime wedges.  Serves 6–8.

+ We served our granita in a pineapple half. To do this, remove the pineapple flesh from the centre and use in the granita.
