Strawberry Pommelo Granita

We stopped by our local farmers market on Sunday after church and found a pommelo! Bigger and sweeter than a grapefruit, and begging to be brought home along with our fresh strawberries.

With these simple ingredients I whipped up a refreshingly tasty dessert. It’s like an icee for adults (but kids like it too).

Strawberry Pommelo Granita (adapted from Epicurious)

1 3/4 cups hulled strawberries

1/2 cup fresh pommelo juice

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup cold water

Puree strawberries, pommelo juice, sugar and water in a processor until smooth. Strain into an 8×8 baking pan. Cover and place in the freezer. Stir with a fork every hour until frozen, about 4 hours. Store in the freezer. Can be made up to 2 days ahead. Garnish with whipped

I can’t decide if it’s better in the glass jar or grapefruit…

…decisions, decisions…

I am submitting this dessert to Abby at Eat the Right Stuff for this month’s Monthly Mingle: Spring Fruit Sensations.
